VIDEO: David Gilmour previews Rattle That Lock South American tour

Promoters Mercury Concerts are sharing a video preview of David Gilmour’s upcoming South American tour in support of his latest album, “Rattle That Lock.”

His first solo tour of the continent will see the Pink Floyd guitarist play 5 shows in Brazil, Argentina and Chile starting December 12 in Sao Paulo.

“I”ve never toured in South America before,” says Gilmour, “and I’m hoping that one will be enormous fun. I’m sure it will be very lively.”

“Rattle That Lock” was recorded at the guitarist’s Astoria houseboat studio and in Hove, Sussex, UK with co-producer Phil Manzanera and wife and lyricist Polly Samson.

Gilmour launched a world tour in support of the record with a September 5 warm-up show in Brighton, UK before playing a sold-out 11-date European tour that included five shows at The Royal Albert Hall in London.

The guitarist will perform a series of North American shows in the spring of 2016.
