Great Success of David Gilmour at Verona Arena

  • Published in News

Gilmour opens the locks of the heart at the Arena

This was the title of Verona Arena newspaper. David Gilmour's official site published a long post, which tells of "a triumphal concert, electric atmosphere and vibrant crowd for the songs played". The evening at the Verona Arena is one that it will remain in the history of concerts in Italy and surely it will remain in the minds and hearts of more than 14,000 fans, who have been lucky enough to attend at the concert of high artistic and musical, and emotional involvement.

The songs played were a good mix among the songs of the album "Rattle That Lock" and the classic Pink Floyd songs,in a lineup that was exactly the same as already presented in Brighton and Pula. Lights and special effects at will, as well as evocative images projected within the circular Floyd screen. The tour will go to Florence and then continue in France, Germany and for several consecutive dates at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London; in December, it will reach Brazil, Chile and Argentina, and, next year, the US and then back to Europe .

David Gilmour's tour in Italy!

After the tour rehearsal held in Brighton on September 5th, which pictures are reported below and kindly sent to us by Ina Wagner, the tour starts officially on Saturday, September 12th in Pula, Croatia: the new "Rattle That Lock" tour by David Gilmour. The Italian fans are obviously focused on the dates of September 14th and September 15th in Verona and in Florence, in the hope that, as in the previous tour, every night David could invent at least some novelty to be included in the lineup of the songs. This is the set list performed in Brighton in front of 4,500 lucky few (including us!) viewers:

First Half

  • 5am
  • Rattle That Lock
  • Faces of Stone
  • Wish You Were
  • Here A Boat Lies Waiting
  • The Blue
  • Money
  • Us And Them
  • In Any Tongue
  • High Hopes

Second Half

  • Astronomy Domine
  • Shine On You Crazy Diamond
  • Fat Old Sun
  • On An Island
  • The Girl In The Yellow Dress
  • Today
  • Sorrow
  • Run Like Hell


  • Time / Breathe Reprise
  • Comfortably Numb

On Friday September 18th, the new album "Rattle That Lock" will be released, in which you can listen to new some songs performed live. The first feedback on international newspapers and magazines is very mixed, who speaks very well, who sufficiently bad. As always, the feedback is subjective, though we are confident that, for the vast majority of the fans, this new album will only strengthen the love towards the famous Pink Floyd guitarist!

An exhibition shows the Pink Floyd in Venice

  • Published in News

Many people remember that night. The famous night of 15 July 1989 when Venice was preparing to host an event quite out of the ordinary. The Pink Floyd concert on a floating platform on the lagoon, just across the square.

They came from all over the world to attend this exceptional performance in the most romantic city of art, which in the hot summer evening had played the role of capital of the planet rock. And the memories of the magic of the moment musical and visual (marked by fireworks) are mixed with the more prosaic "defeat" of the Serenissima in front of the battalions of visitors do not always taught to respect places of history and culture, famously more fragile, like Venice (and in any case not be able to do at that time in subsidized).

Twenty-five years later, the spotlight has once again focused on this event. This is not to reopen the discussion, bring out nostalgic or grievances, rather than closer look at what happened in those days, as the concert was prepared with extraordinary means adapted to the exceptional nature of the event, the crowd massed in front of the basins, the forest of gondolas, the look of Gilmour, Mason and Wright on this almost Disney-set design, the emotion of the musicians.

All through a rich photographic material, to which you add documents, articles, testimonies collected by the cultural Floydseum - founded by Alberto Durgante, Gianluigi Money and Marco Bonecher - for the exhibition "The Night of Wonders" opened July 12 in former Gothic-Romanesque church of Santa Marta and can be visited throughout the summer, until October 26. A few days earlier, on July 9, at 18, this appointment was presented in the Sala Apollinare at La Fenice theater with the participation of a special guest.

Pink Floyd, 25 years after the concert in Venice

  • Published in News

Not a happy experience for the Serenissima, but definitely a great event that you add to the many significant moments in the career of the group

In 1983 The Final Cut. Then two years later, Roger Waters officially leaves the band. In fact, Pink Floyd are granted a long break before returning in 1987 with A Momentary Lapse Of Reason. After the release of that album, the band begins a long tour until the summer of '89.

The date, however, no one would ever expect is that of July 15, 1989 in Venice, the Grand Canal, on a platform moored in front of Piazza San Marco. The live version is limited to organizational matters and broadcasting needs.

Pink Floyd playing it for 90 minutes in front of 200 thousand people arrived at the unique location, created especially for the occasion. The countries associated with the event are more than twenty, 100 million viewers are estimated.

Go on stage David Gilmour (guitars and vocals) Richard Wright (keyboards and vocals) Nick Mason (drums and percussion) Jon Carin (keyboards, synthesizer, vocals) Tim Renwick (guitars) Guy Pratt (bass and vocals) Scott Page (saxophones) Gary Wallis (percussion) Rachel Fury (backing vocals) Durga McBroom (backing vocals) and Lorelei McBroom (backing vocals).

Une expo sur les Pink Floyd à Santa Marta

  • Published in News

Voici un rdv à ne pas manquer pour tous les passionnés de pop-rock et en particulier pour tous les fans des Pink Floyd. Cette exposition, dans l’espace culturel de l’ancienne église gothique-romane de Santa Marta, est consacrée au légendaire concert que le groupe anglais donna à Venise il y a 25 ans, le 15 juillet 1989, dans la nuit du Redentore. Sur une plateforme qui flottait sur les eaux de la lagune face à la place Saint Marc, sur fond de feux d’artifices et devant une marée de gondoles et d’embarcations, les Pink Floyd donnèrent vie à une performance extraordinaire. Les image de cette nuit magique restent à tout jamais dans les yeux de tous ceux qui étaient présents.

Le parcours de l’exposition, en sept sections, repropose l’aventure vénitienne des Pink Floyd des origines jusqu’au réveil, parfois difficile, de la ville le lendemain du concert et les concerts successifs de David Gilmour. Le tout à travers des souvenirs, des témoignages, des vidéos (dont celui du concert) et beaucoup de photos, cent-cinquante sur les six cents que les organisateurs avaient à disposition. Certaines montrent comment le podium fut transporté sur l’eau ou la stupeur des musiciens devant le spectacle de Venise et du public assis sur les berges. Une expo qui permet, au delà de l’évènement vénitien, la trajectoire d’un groupe mythique et d’en apprécier la modernité.
