David Gilmour has announced an extra Los Angeles date at the Intuit Dome on Friday, October 25.

Gilmour had previously announced three shows at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 29, 30 and 31 and five more shows at Madison Square Garden in New York on November 4, 5, 9 and 10. Due to popular demand an extra LA show has been added. These are Gilmour's first US shows in eight years and are in support of his new album Luck And Strange, to be released through Sony Music on September 6.

Fans will need to sign up at Gilmour's website to get early access to tickets on Wednesday, June 12 at 10am local time. The general sale for all shows will begin on Friday, June 14 at 10am.

Gilmour’s touring band for the dates will include Guy Pratt on bass, Greg Phillinganes and Rob Gentry on keyboards, Adam Betts on drums, Ben Worsley on guitar and Louise Marshall and The Webb Sisters, Hattie and Charley, on background vocals.

In April Gilmour announced his brand new solo album Luck And Strange. It will be his first album of new material in nine years.

"It’s written from the point of view of being older; mortality is the constant,” says Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson, who has written the lyrics.

“We spent a load of time during and after lockdown talking about and thinking about those kind of things," adds Gilmour.
