Relax. I’ll need some information first. Just the basic facts. Where is Gilmour going?

19 Jul

A few days ago I reported that David Gilmour will join Roger Waters for the performance of “Comfortably Numb” at one of Waters’ “The Wall” concert dates  (https://musiccourt.wordpress.com/2010/07/16/david-gilmour-and-roger-waters-will-reunite-at-least-once-more-for-one-song/). Waters and Gilmour, both great showmen, will leave a lot of eager ticket holders and fans obscured by clouds and in the dark on where Gilmour will join Waters on stage (I’m sorry, Pink Floyd puns are so tempting). Will it remain a surprise? Probably. I can’t see Waters revealing this information when it stands to make him even more money than the epic tour already stands to make. But, that does not mean I cannot guess.

In my mind, Waters and Gilmour will choose from one or two options. Gilmour can surprise the world, and a very pleased New York crowd, and make his grand appearance at either of the Madison Square Garden dates in early October. If this does happen, it most definitely demonstrates Gilmour and Waters’ willingness to play more concerts in the United States area. Now, don’t get your hopes up entirely because I am pretty sure this will not happen and, even if it does, it does not guarantee a combined tour at all. But, a Floyd fan can dream, right?

My guess is that Gilmour joins Waters at the 02 Arena in London on Tuesday, May 17, 2011. Yes, the tour reaches far into the new year. The 02 Arena is in a convenient location – it is near Gilmour’s residence – and the date is the last in the straight series of five shows played in London, only a mere hour away from the original Pink Floyd stomping grounds, Cambridge. It just all seems to perfect. But, like most things, we must wait and see. So, for now, please enjoy Floyd playing “Comfortably Numb” at Live 8 while tightly holding your tickets and hoping that maybe, just maybe, you will soon see history:
