David Gilmour – Hollywood Bowl : March 25 2016

An EPIC show last night.

This night was a first for me…my first time at the Hollywood Bowl and my first time seeing David Gilmour. I have been wanting to experience both for a long time, and what could be better than both on the same night.

My seat was fairly close to the stage in the Garden section of promenade 1 which was a small 4 person box. What a cool set-up for seating, and even had a waiter who came around very frequently providing food and drinks so you didn’t have to leave your seat, which was kind of good as the way the chairs are set up in the box, all four people need to get up and move to let you out, but my neighbors were cool and this was no problem at all.

The sound was as incredible as I have always heard the Hollywood Bowl to be. Every note from every instrument was crystal clear.

David Gilmour came on stage a little after 8:00pm and opened up with 5 A.M., followed by the title song from his new album, Rattle That Lock. One of my favorite Pink Floyd song, Wish You Were Here was the fourth song of the night and was a dream come true to see and hear this song live. He played a great set, spanning the multiple decades of his career with Pink Floyd with their 1967 debut album through is current album. Some of the other memorable songs of the night were, What do You Want From Me, from the Division Bell album, Money and Us and Them from the Dark Side of The Moon album and of course Astronomy Domain, Shine on You Crazy Diamond, The Blue and Run Like Hell.He performed two encore songs which were perfect closures on a perfect night, Time and Comfortably Numb.

I can’t wait to see him perform and the Forum in LA tomorrow night.
