David Gilmour’s “Rattle That Lock Tour” from 2015-2016 was a significant musical event, celebrating his fourth solo studio album “Rattle That Lock.” The tour spanned five legs with 50 shows, grossing $78.1 million. It commenced on September 12, 2015, and concluded on September 30, 2016.

Background and Venues

The tour was announced in early 2015 with the first dates in Europe, spanning six countries and nine venues. The venues chosen for the first leg were primarily Roman amphitheaters, adding a historical and atmospheric dimension to the performances. The Royal Albert Hall in London was a key venue in the UK, and Gilmour also performed at the historic Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, a location he had last played with Pink Floyd in 1972​​.

Touring Band and Special Performances

The band for the tour included musicians who had accompanied Gilmour on his previous “On an Island Tour,” such as Phil Manzanera, Guy Pratt, Jon Carin, and Steve DiStanislao. During a performance on April 24, 2016, Gilmour paid tribute to Prince, who had passed away three days earlier, by integrating a snippet of “Purple Rain” into “Comfortably Numb.” For the latter part of the tour, new members such as Chester Kamen, Greg Phillinganes, and Chuck Leavell joined the band​​.

Setlist and Musical Highlights

The setlist featured tracks from the “Rattle That Lock” album, including “5 A.M.,” “Rattle That Lock,” “Faces of Stone,” and “A Boat Lies Waiting.” It also included Pink Floyd classics like “Wish You Were Here,” “Money,” “Us and Them,” and “High Hopes.” The tour was marked by a diverse range of music, showcasing Gilmour’s ability to blend his solo work with the iconic sound of Pink Floyd. A notable performance was in Wrocław, Poland, where Gilmour was accompanied by the Wrocław Philharmonic Orchestra, adding a grand orchestral dimension to the songs​​.

The “Rattle That Lock Tour” was a testament to David Gilmour’s enduring appeal and musical versatility, drawing in fans from around the world and receiving critical acclaim for its blend of new material and classic Pink Floyd sounds.
