Remember That Night previewWith thanks to our friends over at EMI and David Gilmour's management, we can now bring you a tantalising, high quality video preview for the forthcoming 2DVD or 2-disc Bluray set, "Remember That Night". Lasting over five minutes, it is well worth checking out!

It is a recording of the stunning three nights David, his band, and special guests (including Nick Mason, Robert Wyatt and David Bowie) spent at London's Royal Albert Hall at the end of May 2006. The DVD is released in Europe on Monday, September 17th, and in North America the following day, Tuesday, September 18th, and for the Bluray set, the European (EMI) version appears in selected countries on November 26th, and the US (Sony BMG) version on November 20th.

The preview shows the preparations for the concerts, including stage set-up and rehearsals - in particular getting David Bowie up to speed on how best to sing Comfortably Numb. There's also a really amusing sequence backstage with Bowie revealing the first time he saw Pink Floyd live!

You'll also get to see extracts from various songs, and some interview footage with DG talking about how an earlier performance at the Royal Albert Hall landed them with a ban for "life"!

Looks like a GREAT job has been done, and we're in for a real treat when the DVD itself arrives! Please note, the screenshots are from the streams above, and not the DVD. Shot in high definition, the final product should look truly wonderful...

There will be high-resolution versions in both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD to follow the standard release - we'll advise the dates of these when we have them.

Details of the full contents have been slowly being released at David's own website (www.DavidGilmour.com) so check there regularly.

ORDER IT HERE!

In the meantime, Amazon have started taking preorders for the DVD (with a discount) through the following special links: Amazon US/International, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, or Amazon France.

In terms of the other extras on disc 2, these include "Breaking Bread, Drinking Wine", a documentary with behind-the-scenes footage of the tour, from the rehearsals in Bray (after the first European and American legs), through to Gdansk. There's also backstage material from Los Angeles, shot on the West Coast of America, reportedly hilarious. And, there's the making of 'On An Island', an edit of the EPK but with some extra songs on it.

If that's not enough, his blog have also revealed the following as well:

- The tracks 'Castellorizon', 'On An Island', 'The Blue', 'Take A Breath' and 'High Hopes', from London's Mermaid Theatre (March 2006), will be included.
- 'Astronomy Domine', as recorded for the 'Live From Abbey Road' television series, is on there...
- As is 'This Heaven' from the AOL Sessions. (This has been re-edited, by the way, so is an improvement on the version that can be found on the 'Live And In Session' disc.)
- The 'Dark Globe' video that they've been showing on the website is included.
- The promo videos for 'On An Island' and 'Smile' are also on there.
- There's a new version of 'Island Jam', featuring David, Richard, Stevie and Guy.
- There is also a photo gallery.

So, make sure you place your order for the DVD now, and you should get it around the day of release!
