David Gilmour officially opened his Rattle That Lock tour in Pula, Croatia on Saturday.
The 21-song show at the city’s Arena – an ancient Roman Amphitheatre built between 27BC – 68AD – mirrored the setlist from the guitarist’s September 5 warm-up show in Brighton, UK, mixing material from the new album alongside solo and classic Pink Floyd tracks.
The Croatia stop is the first of a sold-out 11-date European tour in support of Gilmour’s upcoming fourth solo album.
The guitarist co-produced the record with Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, which was recorded at various places including Gilmour’s Astoria houseboat studio and in Hove, Sussex, UK.
Due September 18, “Rattle That Lock” will be available in a CD edition with clothbound, foil-blocked cover, including a 22-page booklet, and also on heavyweight vinyl, digital download and a deluxe box edition, which includes 4 Barn Jam films, 4 non-album audio tracks, 4 documentaries, and 2 promo clips.
A Deluxe Edition on CD+DVD or CD+Blu-ray versions will include 2 hardback books, a double-sided poster, a postcard in a dedicated envelope and a Gilmour guitar pick.
