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 UK tour. The band recently thrilled audiences with 55 shows in North America, honoring Pink Floyd's 1973 masterpiece The Dark Side of The Moon . These performances were acclaimed by the press and fans and achieved groundbreaking box office results.

The Gilmour Project features 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 for Journey, Todd Rundgren, Blue Floyd, Jefferson Starship and Phil Lesh & Friends, XTC, George Harrison, Chris Isaak and Dick Dale), Mark Karan (guitar/vocals for Bob Weir, RatDog, The Other Ones, Dave Mason and Live Dead '69) and Scott Guberman (keyboards and vocals for Phil Lesh & Friends, Live Dead '69 and Keystone Revisited).

Their original, multimedia-staged "Floydian" spectacle eschews the replication of Floyd/Gilmour productions and imagery, instead relying on visual elements by acclaimed LD Hans Shoop (known for his work with Blondie and Todd Rundgren) and 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, modernizing 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.

More than a tribute band, The Gilmour Project is an original ensemble of five musicians who have been pursuing a rock career since the 1970s and have a deep interest in transferring the classics of the beloved British band into the realm of jazz and improvisation. In doing so, they not only reinterpreted Dark Side of the Moon , but also shed light on the legacy of albums such as Animals (1977), Meddle (1971), Wish You Were Here (1975) and A Saucerful of Secrets (1968). From the very beginning of their performance with the sounds of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", it was clear that the band was fully committed to the atmosphere of Pink Floyd.
