A musical journey through time in a class of its own
The acclaimed all-star band dedicated to exploring the music of Pink Floyd and David Gilmour announces their first European shows.
The Gilmour Project's EU debut is scheduled for February 2024 and follows the successful run of the UK tour. Recently, the band wowed audiences with 55 shows in North America, paying tribute to Pink Floyd's 1973 masterpiece "The Dark Side of The Moon". These performances were acclaimed by the press and fans and achieved ground-breaking box office results.
The Gilmour Project is made up of world-class musicians including Jeff Pevar (lead guitar for CSN, David Crosby/CPR, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Bette Midler, Phil Lesh & Friends, Ricki Lee Jones and Marc Cohn), Kasim Sulton (musical director and bassist, known for his work with Todd Rundgren's Utopia, Blue Oyster Cult, Hall & Oates, Cheap Trick, Cyndi Lauper and Joan Jett), Prairie Prince (co-founder of The Tubes, drummer with Journey, Todd Rundgren, Blue Floyd, Jefferson Starship and Phil Lesh & Friends, XTC, George Harrison, Chris Isaak and Dick Dale), Mark Karan (guitar/vocals with Bob Weir, RatDog, The Other Ones, Dave Mason and Live Dead '69) and Scott Guberman (keyboards and vocals with Phil Lesh & Friends, Live Dead '69 and Keystone Revisited).
Their original, multimedia "Floydian" spectacle eschews the replication of Floyd/Gilmour productions and images. Instead, the band relies on visual elements by acclaimed LD Hans Shoop (known for his work with Blondie and Todd Rundgren) as well as quadraphonic sound design and special audio effects by The Duke of New York (producer of Paul Simon's "Graceland - The Remixes"). Each show was streamed live, modernising the Grateful Dead's marketing philosophy by making performances available worldwide for free to those who could not attend in person due to covid concerns or location restrictions.
The Gilmour Project is more than a tribute band. It is an original ensemble of five musicians who have been pursuing rock careers since the 1970s and have a deep interest in transposing the beloved British band's classics into the realm of jazz and improvisation. In doing so, they not only reinterpreted "Dark Side of the Moon" but also illuminated the legacy of albums such as "Animals"(1977), "Meddle" (1971), "Wish You Were Here" (1975) and "A Saucerful of Secrets" (1968). Right at the beginning of their performance with the sounds of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", it became clear that the band is fully committed to the atmosphere of Pink Floyd.
