Schlossplatz, StuttgartJust announced is a second concert to take place in mainland Europe this year as part of David Gilmour's 2016 Rattle That Lock tour, which restarts on March 24th at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. July 14th sees the production arrive at Schlossplatz, in Stuttgart, Germany.

The last time that David performed in the city was back in 1989 during the Pink Floyd tour that year, when the band played the Neckarstadion. Roger Waters performed in the city in 2002, at the Schleyer Halle.

For the first 100 years or so of its life, Schlossplatz was closed to the public and was a military parade ground. Situated next to two other popular squares in Stuttgart, getting to and from the site should prove simple for concertgoers.

Every year Schlossplatz is home to major outdoor events such as open-air concerts, children's fairs and parts of the Christmas market including an outdoor ice rink. During the 2006 World Cup Finals the square regularly held more than 40,000 spectators who watched live matches on 3 huge screens.

Tickets for this concert go on sale on Friday (February 5th) at 10am CET (Central European Time) through normal official agents. More details as we get them.
