David Gilmour releases ‘Live In Gdansk’

On September 22nd, David Gilmour will release ‘Live In Gdańsk’ – a live double album and concert DVD.


David Gilmour’s first solo live album captures the magic of his concert
held in front of 50,000 fans in the Gdańsk shipyards in Poland. This final
performance from his critically acclaimed 2006 ‘On An Island’ tour features
Pink Floyd classics never previously performed with an orchestra. The
concert marked the 26th Anniversary of the founding of trade union
Solidarity in Poland and the historic importance of the date magnified the
night’s breathtaking atmosphere.

The 2.5 hour DVD accompanying the live album fully portrays the drama of
the Gdańsk concert, set against the industrial landscape of the shipyard
and the crane-filled skyline. It includes both concert footage and a
riveting documentary featuring David Gilmour and the Baltic Philharmonic
Symphony Orchestra in Gdańsk.
