David Gilmour decides to go solo
One of the problems Gilmour encountered while playing with Pink Floyd was that he felt Waters was making every decision regarding the band. Consequently, David started his own music career and in 1978 he released his self-titled debut album. His second album “About Face” (1984) hit the Top Twenty in the United Kingdom. During this time Gilmour also worked alongside music legends Paul McCartney, Bryan Ferry, Pete Townshend and Supertramp.
A decade later Gilmour became Pink Floyd’s front man and relaunched the band with a new album called “A Momentary Lapse of Reason.” This was their second last album as a group. Pink Floyd finally decided to call it quits after “The Division Bell” came out.
Once Pink Floy had broken up, Gilmour focused on producing his own music. In 2002 he performed a series of acoustic shows in London that were praised by fans and critics alike. In 2006 he released his second solo album “On an Island”. The record was a great hit – it reached number one in the UK and was declared Platinum. The album was followed by a major tour which was also filmed for the 2007 DVD release titled “Remember That Night: Live at the Royal Albert Hall”.
Gilmour’s current projects
These days Gilmour is preparing for the release of his fourth studio album titled “Rattle That Lock”. The album will be available for purchase in September 2015. It is also Gilmour’s first solo album in almost a decade!
While he isn’t playing music, Gilmour takes time out of his busy schedule to work with different charities. He recently sold his home in West London and donated the proceeds to “Crisis” – a nonprofit organization that aims to provide services to the homeless. Gilmour also volunteers to help organizations like Oxfam, Greenpeace and Amnesty International.
Get ready North America!
Gilmour will be playing a few shows in the States this fall before returning to Britain for his Europe tour. However, the Pink Floyd guitarist will be coming back for his 2016 North America tour in March. He is scheduled to perform in four different cities – Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and New York City. His tour has already received an overwhelming response from fans. According to Gilmour’s managers ticket demand is at an all-time high. As a result, additional shows have been added.
