Despite recent announcements that the Crossroads Guitar Festival in Paris includes David Gilmour making an appearance as part of the show, we are now getting information through that this may not be the case.

The concert, on June 18th 2004, is being held at the Olympia Bruno Coquatrix, and the four hour show was announced with the news of Gilmour appearing on, amongst other European websites, americana-uk.com and MusikExpress in Germany, and David's appearance is also mentioned on the Crossroad's website.

We are in contact with Pink Floyd Management to find out the truth behind this - as soon as we know for definite, we'll let you know. In the meantime, hold off buying tickets for the show if David was your chief reason for attending!

We now have confirmation from sources at the Olympia who confirm that David will not be appearing at the show, despite the assurances of various websites who announced the news in the first place. These websites are still saying that David will appear, unfortunately. Our thanks to Hervé for getting to the bottom of this with the Olympia for us!
