At last, the news many Pink Floyd fans have been eagerly awaiting! We are pleased to be able to bring you full details of David Gilmour's UK and European tour dates.

David Gilmour
David Gilmour - Live 2006
David will be touring in Spring 2006, with his 'On An Island Tour', the title coming from Gilmour’s new solo album which is released on 6 March 2006.

Amongst the shows will be two UK dates - the 29th and 30th May at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

From 9am on Wednesday 7th December until noon on Thursday 8th December there will be a priority booking period for 300 pairs of £65 tickets for the two Royal Albert Hall concerts.

These will only be available via a website which will be available shortly -; following this priority booking period, tickets will then be available from 9am on Friday 9th December from:

Tickets for the London shows are priced at: £65/£60/£50/£30 plus booking fee.

Tickets for other venues will be on sale through the venues themselves and normal ticket agents, and will go on sale on Friday; this is with the exception of the French dates, which go on sale tomorrow (Thursday).

This will be David Gilmour’s first European tour since Pink Floyd’s triumphant Division Bell tour in 1994 and his first public performance following this Summer’s Pink Floyd appearance at Live 8. He commented:

“I’m very much looking forward to this tour and making music with the great musicians in the band. I’ve had a fantastic time making ‘On An Island’ and really want to perform tracks from it, along with my more familiar repertoire. I’m rather hoping that with this tour announcement people will believe me when I say, honestly, this is the only band I plan to tour with!”

Marc Brickman, lighting genius who has worked with Gilmour on many Floyd tours, will design the lighting for the intimate venues chosen for this tour.
