Pink Floyd Weekender at London's V&A, June 2017

Starting this coming Friday evening, June 16th, is a special V&A Pink Floyd Weekender, three days of special events, music and performance taking place across the Museum, to celebrate The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains.

There are still some events to be announced, including face painting, pop up performance, film screenings and hands-on workshops, but from those already announced, there's everything from relaxing music in the museum cafe, guitar workshops, and a fascinating sounding study day with participation from the likes of Nick Mason and Peter Wynne Willson!

Most of the events are free and drop in sessions, although a few need booking ahead. For more details of all the events, download the programme here.

The Floyd at 50 study day runs from 11am on Saturday, through to 5pm. Join the V&A to explore the music, design and staging of Pink Floyd. You'll get to meet key collaborators and passionate advocates as they celebrate half a century in the music business. Book now through this link.

Written by Matt   
Sunday, 04 June 2017

This morning in the US, Roger appeared on the CBS show "Sunday Morning", discussing the new tour, which he notes is bigger and even more technically complex, and is likely to be his last. "I would think so, yeah. I can't imagine I'll ever do another one after this, but I'm going for it. I mean, I'm going all over the world with this thing."

The interview delves into his time with Pink Floyd, and is an interesting piece. You can watch it below. "Sunday Morning" also streams on CBSN beginning at 9:30am ET, and is available on cbs.com, CBS All Access, and On Demand. You can also listen to "Sunday Morning" audio podcasts at Play.it.

Roger Waters - Us + Them tour 2017

With the release of the new Roger Waters album, Is This The Life We Really Want? yesterday, to much acclaim (see our review for more about it), and the start of the Us + Them tour, there's plenty of media coverage at the moment.

Tomorrow morning in the US, Roger will be appearing on the CBS show "Sunday Morning" which airs at 9am ET including at cbssundaymorning.com. "Sunday Morning" also streams on CBSN beginning at 9:30am ET, and is available on cbs.com, CBS All Access, and On Demand. You can also listen to "Sunday Morning" audio podcasts at Play.it.

In the interview, Roger discusses the new tour, which he notes is bigger and even more technically complex, and is likely to be his last. "I would think so, yeah. I can't imagine I'll ever do another one after this, but I'm going for it. I mean, I'm going all over the world with this thing."

To underline his keenness for the tour, and heavy demand, he has just added a further six dates to the North American tour, bringing the tally up to 61. This includes third shows in Chicago, Philadelphia and Toronto; second shows in Washington and Vancouver; and a new show in Buffalo. Tickets are on sale June 9th, through the main ticketing outlets of Ticketmaster.com for the US shows, Ticketmaster.ca for the Canadian shows, or AXS.com for selected US and Canadian shows.

Finally confirmed - David Gilmour Live at Pompeii, in cinemas September 13th Print E-mail

David Gilmour - Live at Pompeii film release poster

One of the most eagerly awaited concert recordings is now confirmed - so keep September 13th free in your diary! David Gilmour Live at Pompeii, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder and to be presented in Dolby Atmos sound, is a recording of the pair of spectacular concerts held at the ancient Roman amphitheatre on July 7th and 8th last year.

The concerts were held 45 years after David last played there, for the Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii filming by Adrian Maben, and whilst the original performance was without an audience, the shows last year were the first ever rock shows played to an audience in the venue (which was entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79). As you will have seen via the reviews of the two shows on this site, they were incredible experiences.

The film of these shows, using highlights from both nights, should prove just as spectacular and unforgettable. For one night only, on September 13th, over 2000 cinemas worldwide will be showing David Gilmour Live At Pompeii.

The show includes songs from throughout David's career including the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island. Also included are other solo and Pink Floyd classics such as Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band in 1971. Both concerts also saw very special performances of The Great Gig In The Sky from The Dark Side Of The Moon, which David rarely plays as a solo artist.

Tickets are now on sale worldwide with more cinemas to follow soon, including Latin America and Central America. Via 'Demand It' if David Gilmour Live at Pompeii is not screening in a specific area, fans can make a request for it by filling out a form on the website, and Trafalgar Releasing will do their best to bring the event to a cinema near them.

For details of cinemas taking part in this very special one night only event and ticket information visit davidgilmourcinematickets.com.
