According to Brain Damage, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd Guitarist) will not be doing a mini tour as suggested late last year. Brain Damage said “We have it on VERY good authority that David Gilmour’s 2003 tour has sadly been shelved. He is not expecting to do any shows this year (apart from the odd guest appearance) so it’ll be 2004 at the earliest.“.

You can buy the DVD cheaply for £11.99 which includes free delivery to anywhere in the world here. It will certainly keep you going until 2004 when Gilmour is expected to announce some dates.
