DAVID GILMOUR - Pula, Arena, 12.09.2015. - English

There is no comparison between concerts of Roger Waters' 'The Wall' and Gilmour's in Pula - they are phenomenal but different.

Galerija

Public, not only fans, has waited nine years on David Gilmour, the voice and the guitar of famed Pink Floyd, to go live, on world tour. Nine years of waiting was also for a new studio album under the name "Rattle That Lock" that will see the light of the day next Friday on September, 18. (Our review is in the making, look for it at Perun.hr during next week.)

Saturday's performance in Pula marked the beginning of Gilmour's European Tour. It is an honor for one of our sites, but the same goes for the other side - performing in magnificent Roman amphitheater Arena is just as big honor for any performer. It was the matter of time which one, Waters or Gilmour, would conquer the Arena first - turned out to be Gilmour, but even so - if it were the other way around - it would be just as good. 

Croatia has seen Roger Waters and his grande spectacle "The Wall" twice already, so it was kind of interesting making some comparisons. The result is: they are incomparable, because they are such different shows to the core, but just as wonderful. 
I think it is safe to say that "The Wall" equally impacts Pink Floyd's hardcore fans and all the rest: the album surely isn't the best effort band created but it is unique, interesting and musically rich. Waters at the other hand is most probably the most important figure of the band, in spite of Syd Barret. 



Looking from the other angle, Gilmour brought to Floyd music originality, variety and trademark, in fact a bit more commercial take to creativity. His solo albums are not close to any of Floyd's prime albums, but they are so soaked in 'Floyd music' that when you closely listen to them you can easily see just how much Gilmour brought to the Floyd music table and just how much he was the integral part of the band's composing. 

If the previous album 'On the Island" was a bit too quiet, the new one -"Rattle That Lock" of which premier hearing we had Saturday night  - is for sure much more vivid, lively, active, diverse and in total, better album. 

A lot of tourists and fans from abroad came to Pula only to see Gilmour playing live, so packed the Arena in number of over 6,500 visitors (the venue was half-seated) they all wanted to hear primarily olden goldies of Pink Floyd opus. 

But a bit unexpectedly, although the new album is not yet released, the new songs (in total five of them) were accepted very well. Some even excellent like "Rattle That Lock" and soft jazzy feel of the ballad "The Girl In Yellow Dress".



No doubt everyone was in great mood in Arena, from the audience to performers including Mr Gilmour himself. I must point out the members of supporting band, exquisite instrumentalists and musicians to be proud of: Theo Travis on saxophone, Guy Pratt on bass and one very important man, ex- Roxy Music Phil Manzanera, who took duties of playing the other guitar. Mazanera was also a co-producer of the new album. He received the loudest applause from the audience. 

Gilmour was just Gilmour - he speaks a little but says a lot. Tough some may find them "spectacular" -  the lights were effective, but were miles away from an awesome work on Roger Waters' "The Wall" spectacular visual show. What we saw in Pula was just as good as any better stage show in general, something we can see at the "Brit Floyd" show (best Pink Floyd cover band, officially recognized by the band itself) but all this, at the end, is not the most important thing especially when it comes down to David Gilmour. 

He had assuring strong voice and of "flying" fingertips that gave us exactly what we came for - razor blade precision, perfection and feeling of playing and performing.
Audience expressed the first wave of admiration early on during the immortal "Wish You Were Here"  and little later on phenomenal "Money", "Astronomy Domine" and naturally, "Shine On You Crazy Diamond".
 


Regardless of the age, the audience finally stood up from the seats on the very last song of the second part of the concert, on "Run Like Hell". We did not run like hell, but erupted with the overall enthusiasm.

The encore was an old school matter -  the artist leaves the stage and audience applauds and calls for more. For the very end and this time for real, Gilmour & Co. played "Time", "Breathe" and one more immortal song, "Comfortably Numb". 

Finally, I actually do not know what to say about all. I'm pretty sure I share the feeling of almost everyone in the Arena - I felt as I am ready to fly. 

That sensation and the concert that we will be long remembered.
