DAVID GILMOUR

More from this Band



Live in Gda?sk is a live album by David Gilmour. It is a part of his On an Island project which includes an album, tour, DVD, and live album. It was released on 22 September 2008. A David Gilmour Signature Series Fender Stratocaster was released at the same time.

It is a recording of the final show of his On an Island tour in 2006, where he played to an audience of 50,000 at the Gda?sk Shipyard to celebrate the founding of the Solidarity trade union.

The show featured the song A Great Day for Freedom, which appears on Pink Floyd's final studio album The Division Bell from 1994. It was last performed by Gilmour during his semi-acoustic shows in 2002.

It's also the final Pink Floyd-related recording to feature the late Richard Wright, who died on September 15, 2008, one week before the album's official release.

Gilmour and his band were backed by the Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zbigniew Preisner and Leszek Mo?d?er on piano.

The album debuted at #10 on the UK Album chart and debuted at #26 on the US Billboard album chart.
