Richard Wright to play Gilmour tour
Posted by madhack on Jan 27, 2006
David Gilmour's official site is now carrying the confirmed lineup for the upcoming tour. Familiar faces include Guy Pratt and Jon Carin, but what's most notable is the fact that Richard Wright is listed as a member of the touring band.
Richard, of course, joined David on stage for parts of his acoustic shows that became part of the In Concert DVD, but for those of us who couldn't be at that show, at the Roger Waters shows where Nick Mason sat in, or at Live 8, this should be a nice partial reunion.

Billboard is carrying the news that David Gilmour has announced his North American tour.

Pre-sale begins tomorrow on David Gilmour's website, with general availability the weekend of January.
