Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Gig Review Royal Albert Hall London.
David Gilmour has been playing since he was 9 and @ the Royal Albert Hall he showd that he was perhaps the greatest electric guitar its on the planet! All the the key elements came together to make this Royal Albert Hall a truly brilliant performance. There is something quite majestic about the way Gilmour sweetly bends his notes effortlessly making each not swing so sweetly . The guitar is a magical thing and when you hear the seminal Wish You Where Here in a magnificent venue like the Royal Albert Hall you know the guitar is the finest most versatile instrument in existence. The new single Rattle That Lock, is the strongest single featuring electric guitar since Daft Punks Get Lucky.
“Comfortably Numb” was simply magnificent with Gilmour soloing fluidly & freely playing what is considered by some to be the greatest electric guitar solo of all time.
During the Albert Hall show he performed several Pink Floyd classics including “Us and Them” live for the first time. As expected, each note-perfect, each tune a gigantic version of the studio version, which is why the Floyd songs inevitably stand tall above almost every rock song of the last 30 years. Overall its fair to say we loved the show and without question Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour is a must see for all guitar lovers!
