David Gilmour Announces European September Shows, Possible Fall Record Release

(UPDATE 3/9/15) Pink Floyd frontman David Gilmour has announced two more European dates on his upcoming fall solo tour. Gilmour was slated to conclude his eight-show stint at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 25, but an additional two dates at the prestigious London venue will now see the 69-year-old play there on October 2 and 3, bringing his total show count at the Royal Albert Hall to five.

(UPDATE 3/5/15) David Gilmour is putting an end to his near decade-long tour hiatus this September. The Pink Floyd frontman has announced a string of international dates later this summer and has also hinted at a new solo studio album being released around the same time.
