Teenage Cancer Trust Benefit Concert
London 2016 [no label, 3CD]

Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, UK: April 24 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording.


Pink crossed with purple at the Royal Albert Hall, as a purple orb shone over the stage like a purple sun, spotlights bathed the imperious Victorian interior in luminous hues of violet, and David Gilmour segued Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb into Prince’s Purple Rain. In the midst of the longest, brightest burning coda to the Floyd rock classic you could ever wish to hear, the band shifted seamlessly into the Prince chord sequence, Gilmour showering his rapt audience at this Teenage Cancer Trust benefit gig with a cascade of glittering guitar notes while a trio of backing singers delivered descending, “Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh’s”. No words were said or needed to be, as one incredible guitarist paid tribute to another. It was a fantastic and unexpected conclusion to another reliably impressive performance from Gilmour that hit all the right notes to satisfy fans whilst only intermittently setting pulses racing. Comfortably Numb is perhaps a risky title to have hanging around your neck.

  3. That was the best of the Prince tributes I saw because it was subtle. He lit the stage purple and worked the homage into one of his own songs. Well done, Mr. Gilmour.

  5. Gene (Ambient Landscape) I love your remix! Can you upload to a sharing site so I can download? Amazing!! Really cleared up the sound from the recording. Did you happen to clean up the entire show? If so, please please share!

  6. A great set indeed. Unfortunately the recording quality is below par with some of last years best recordings from Italy.
