As expected, David Gilmour has confirmed a two-week, five-city tour of North America this spring in support of his upcoming solo album, “On an Island.” Dates will get underway with an April 4-5 stand at New York’s Radio City Music Hall and run through April 19-20 at Los Angeles’ Kodak and Gibson Theatres, respectively.
“On an Island” will arrive March 6 via Columbia in the United Kingdom and a day later in North America. The former Pink Floyd vocalist/guitarist will begin roadwork March 10 in Dortmund, Germany, backed by a band whose members have yet to be announced.
Gilmour promises to blend new songs with Pink Floyd classics on the trek. “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!,” he says.
The artist will bring along lightning technician Marc Brickman, a longtime part of Pink Floyd’s live production. Pre-sale tickets for the North American shows begin tomorrow (Dec. 19) via Gilmour’s Web site and will go on sale to the general public the second weekend in January.
