Official Pink Floyd 2023 Calendar now available to order Print E-mail

Official Pink Floyd 2023 CalendarAs we head toward the final part of 2022, it's the time to try and focus on the future with as much positivity as we can in these troubled times, with the Official Pink Floyd 2023 Calendar.

It's a perennial Floyd fan favourite - particularly as a gift at Christmas time. An item which has been produced for many years now, and designed for use hanging on walls, the standardised format is roughly the same size as a vinyl album - roughly 12" (or 30cm) square, with the calendar opening up to have a double page spread per month.

The calendar this year is a celebration of the band in its later years, via various images, record sleeves, and suchlike, some of which were newly revealed for The Later Years box set.

The images here show all twelve monthly images, along with the front cover.

The calendar each year is often squirrelled away as a collectable for the years to come, and earlier examples are now quite sought after.

ORDERING INFO:
Ordering any item after entering Amazon through our links helps with BD's ongoing running costs, and we really appreciate it: Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy. It is also available to order through the UK based HMV.com which at time of typing this, is slightly cheaper than Amazon, although that doesn't take into account any postage fees which might be due. With HMV, if you have a local store you can collect orders from there, free of charge, so that's worth considering.

UPDATED - Roger Waters: This Is Not A Drill Europe 2023 tour expands Print E-mail

Roger Waters - This Is Not A Drill European Tour 2023Further dates have been released for the 2023 Roger Waters This Is Not A Drill tour of Europe, with some tickets already on sale, and most of the newly announced shows going on presale this coming Wednesday, with the general sale starting on Friday. Tickets for some of the shows are already selling very quickly.

Important: please check the individual show(s) you are interested in for confirmation of the exact ticketing details for that event, as they might differ from the majority.

This European tour announcement is on the back of his current tour of the US and Canada, which is 30 shows in, with 12 still to play. The new staging sees the band playing "in the round", with Roger prowling the stage to present to all sides of the arenas. Above is a new screen, arranged in a kind of cross. We don't want to say too much for those who are trying to avoid spoilers!

You might also notice from this new graphic to support the European tour, that it refers to "his first ever farewell tour" - make of that what you will, not least as a farewell tour isn't normally referred to as that person's "first ever"! Maybe it is Roger having a little joke...

We suspect the following list will grow quickly, so please keep checking back for more details.

Each show will link off to a specific page for that event, including ticket links, directions to the venue, and - once the show has taken place - details of the set list, video from the show, and submitted reviews and pictures from kind Brain Damage readers.

Here's the dates so far, as revealed on Roger's website, along with ticketing websites in some of the countries. We're keeping an eye out for further shows as they get added to the schedule. The TICKETS link gives more information on the dates, any presales there might be, and the various VIP packages that are available for most (if not all) of the shows.

Please note that the originally revealed pair of shows at the Tauron Arena, Krakow, Poland on 21st and 22nd April are reported to have now been cancelled, although Roger has taken issue with this. Having said that, both shows have now been removed from Roger's website, and the ticketing site.

As we get further dates we will update this page - and once the entries above turn into links, our dedicated page for the show will be live, with ticket dates and links!

Nick Mason talks about the 2018 Remix of Pink Floyd's Animals - out Friday Print E-mail

Pink Floyd Animals 2018 Remix deluxe edition with LP, CD, Blu-ray and DVD, with 32 page booklet in gatefold coverIn a new interview with Consequence Of Sound, Nick Mason revealed he kept out of the arguments over the sleeve notes for the upcoming release of the incredible 2018 remix of Pink Floyd's Animals. The remix (including surround versions) is out this Friday on LP, CD, Blu-ray and Super Audio CD (SACD), with a deluxe edition gathering together the first of those three, with a DVD containing the same material as the Blu-ray, all in a well-designed gatefold cover, following on October 7th.

Nick said: "David and Roger had a major disagreement about the liner notes, and like all great world wars no one can quite remember what it was about now and what the problem was. But there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and eventually some sort of resolution was reached. I managed to stay well out of it." Adding to the delay in the release was Covid and Brexit.

Nick also praised the new cover designs (there's two different ones, with the main, dusk image joined by a darker, night-time shot for the Blu-ray cover) with the return to Battersea: "I think its terrific, and it's a continuation of an idea we've had before, which is sort of updating something that has existed — including the 1971 Relics compilation and last year's reissue of 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason".

You can read the full article here.

For those yet to order their copy, we really would urge you to consider this release, as it sounds superb - a really great job has been done by James Guthrie! Full format details are here but we suspect many will go for the deluxe set which has everything other than the SACD. Here are the direct links available to place your orders (which help us with Brain Damage's ongoing running costs, without costing anything further to you!). Amazon purchases before release will take advantage of their pre-order price guarantee, where you will automatically pay the lowest price offered between when you bought the item, and release. With regard to the SACD, this only seems to be available from a couple of retailers.
