This 2006 concert took place at the Polish shipyards were Lech Walesa and his Solidarity Movement made their first impact in 1980, and it celebrates the spirit of that revolution. It also celebrates the spirit of Gilmour's former band, Pink Floyd. The show opens with Gilmour leading his band through a batch of tunes from Floyd's classic DARK SIDE OF THE MOON before launching into his most recent solo album, ON AN ISLAND, in its entirety. The second disc returns to the Floyd catalog, cherry-picking Syd Barrett-era psychedelic gem "Astronomy Domine," prog-rock epic "Echoes," and staples like "Wish You Were Here" and "Comfortably Numb." LIVE IN GDANSK also ended up as an unintentional elegy to Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright, who joins Gilmour here, and died days before the release of this, his last recorded performance.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Gilmour coolly reestablishes his credentials as British cosmic blues guitarist numero uno, nowhere more so than a formidable 25-minute version of Floyd's finest hour, their post-psychedelic odyssey 'Echoes.'"
Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "A suitably impressive backdrop for an equally impressive audio and visual extravaganza, the 2-CD set runs to nearly 160 minutes..."
