David Gilmour Tour 2024 for Luck and Strange A Possibility?

David Gilmour’s Luck and Strange album is now officially announced which greatly increases the probability of a tour happening. For those who are more eagle-eyed you might have spotted some potentially encouraging words on David Gilmour’s website.
