The Pink Floyd legend returned for a victory lap after last years run and demonstrated that he is still at the top of his game

David Gilmour is an all-time guitar great at the top of his game.

David Gilmour once explained his ethos as seeking bliss in music. As the Pink Floyd legend returned to the Albert Hall for a victory lap after last years five-date run, the effects of his intentions felt palpable. Just the first languid, yearning note from his guitar on the opening 5AM the man himself bathed in blue light and a haze of dry ice soared with such clarity and feeling that it earned a spontaneous ovation.

It set the tone for a evening in which Gilmours resistance to mere nostalgia once again made for a precarious balance between totemic Floyd oldies and his less pulse-troubling solo material. While the shows first half found room forWish You Were Here,MoneyandThe Great Gig in the Sky(wailed in harmony by three backing singers, like some eerie gospel threnody), it still felt dominated by more recent material, all rendered with dense sonic precision by his eight-piece band.

The Blueoffered a showcase of Gilmours sky-scraping string bends and glissandos, his fret mastery projected in close-up on the 50ft circular screen what a treat while the anti-warIn Any Tongueand the dolorousHigh Hopesmoved with the slowness and weight of the Titanic in first gear.

The anticipated sound-and-light sensory assault duly arrived after the interval, as the prog-discotheque drama ofOne of These Daysblew the hall to pieces in a strobing blitzkrieg of swirling green, blue and vermillion; the sense that the controls were now set for the heart of the sun becoming literal in the visuals for a gloriousFat Old Sun.

Yet, even before another retina-frazzling display forRun Like Hell(the band were forced to put on dark glasses), things detoured into the comedown longueurs ofOn an Islandand the supper-club jazz ofGirl in the Yellow Dress. It somehow typified the Gilmour live experience of momentum ebbing and flowing but what stunning peaks. The 70-year-old recently said God knows when well do this again; an admission that only deepened the perpetual feeling of being blessed to be watching an all-time guitar great at the top of his game.

First Set: 5 A.M.; Rattle That Lock; Faces Of Stone; What Do You Want From Me; The Blue; The Great Gig In The Sky; A Boat Lies Waiting; Wish You Were Here; Money; In Any Tongue; High Hopes.

Second Set: One Of These Days; Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5); Fat Old Sun; Coming Back To Life; On An Island; The Girl In The Yellow Dress; Today; Sorrow; Run Like Hell.

David Gilmour at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust

Last night, David Gilmour and his band were delighted to perform a concert in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, the last performance in nearly a week of shows for this incredible charity. The concert was the same production and set that David has been successfully touring since last summer, most recently in the United States.

During the afternoon, David and some of the band attended a music workshop to listen to two songs,Spreading LoveandHope Is The Key, which the young people had written during the three-hour workshop, in the style of David Gilmour. The tracks were brilliant and the ovation was very well deserved. Barrie Knight, Davids head of security for over 20 years, has worked with TCT on all their 16 Royal Albert Hall fundraisers, and he also got a rousing vote of thanks.

Teenage Cancer Trusts fundraising concert series at the Royal Albert Hall began in 2000 with a concert by The Who and Friends; Roger Daltrey is the charitys Honorary Patron. Through the proceeds raised by the concerts and the publicity created, Teenage Cancer Trust has created 28 specialist TCT units across the UK and currently funds 63 teenage cancer specialists.

The setlist for last nights concert was the same as Madison Square Garden but with one notable difference: during theComfortably Numbfinale David and the band segued into a brief rendition of the solo fromPurple Rainas a tribute to Prince.

It was another remarkable concert from David, with many fans visibly moved. He signed off with some words of support for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Next stop, Europe.

First Set: 5 A.M.; Rattle That Lock; Faces Of Stone; Wish You Were Here; What Do You Want From Me; A Boat Lies Waiting; The Blue; Money; Us And Them; In Any Tongue; High Hopes.

Last night at Madison Square Garden was the final concert of Davids North American tour, which began at the Hollywood Bowl 20 days ago. Somehow it seems longer; time has a habit of standing still on tour. The concerts have been an unmitigated success with David and the band scaling the heights of musical excellence, garnering rave reviews, drawing wonderful audiences who clearly loved every minute, and evoking emotions in the fans that perhaps took them by surprise, such is the power of great music.

David, having turned 70 this year, seems to have found another gear. This was his third concert in a row and he showed no signs of flagging; quite the reverse. He would be the first to acknowledge that he may be the maestro but he couldnt do what his does without a huge team effort from both his nine-piece band and his crew.

So with this the final report of the North American tour, thank you and take a bow:

David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Jon Carin, Guy Pratt, Steve DiStanislao, Kevin McAlea, Joo Mello, Bryan Chambers, Louise Marshall, and Lucita Jules.

First Set: 5 A.M.; Rattle That Lock; Faces Of Stone; Wish You Were Here; What Do You Want From Me; A Boat Lies Waiting; The Blue; Money; Us And Them; In Any Tongue; High Hopes.

If you ask people to name a famous concert venue in America, the one that is most likely to come to mind is Madison Square Garden. Located in midtown Manhattan, this 18,000 capacity venue sits on top of the equally famous Pennsylvania station. During the soundcheck there was a palpable feeling of excitement that perhaps this would be one of those special ones.

When David and the band walked on the stage, the audience gave them a standing ovation and that set the tone for the night. Not since South America hasWish You Were Herebeen sung with such gusto. They roared, they cheered, they chanted David and the band responded, led by the maestro, knocking it out the park on every track.

For the many guitar fans in the audience, Marc Brickman projects many shots of Davids wide fingers bending and pushing the strings with bewildering accuracy. It also shows close-ups of his famous guitars to good effect, with the trusty black strat taking a lot of the electric load.

Stevie DiStanislaos drumming is rock solid, propelling the band forward and giving David a powerful beat to play off; there is a saying that a band is only as good as its drummer, but perhaps a drummer said that. When there are close-ups of Stevie on the screen it is clear what a physical, as well as musical, job the drummer has … luckily Stevie is a gentle giant.

The film that accompanies the every popularHigh Hopesis set in Davids home city of Cambridge and features the famous university, where his father was a college lecturer. The point where the giant university scarves are released has been cheered throughout theRattle That Locktour.

At the end of this magnificent concert David thanked the audience and said I hope you all had as good a time as I have.

Waking up to the perfect sunny spring day in New York put everyone in the mood for the concert at Radio City Music Hall, also known as the Showplace of the Nation. This 6,000-seater iconic venue, built in the Art Deco style, opened in 1932 and still features the famous annual Christmas Spectacular with The Rockettes. Steve DiStanislao, the bands drummer, causally mentioned that his grandma did a stint as a Rockette: impressive grandma credentials, Stevie.

Last night there were quite a few latecomers and its worth bearing in mind that the concert does start at 8.00pm.

The watery couplet ofA Boat Lies WaitingandThe Blueworked beautifully in this intimate and grand theatre, with its apricot velvet seats and gold drapes adorning the proscenium arch.

The sound of cash registers drew a roar of recognition followed by the famous bass riff, asMoneygot underway in all its musical greatness. This was followed byUs And Them, a Waters/Wright composition and another track fromThe Dark Side Of The Moon. TheUs And Themfilm, shown on the giant circular screen, opens with a grey, London day and then cuts to New York, and aerial views of the skyscraper city, perhaps including last nights venue.

Louise Marshall, Lucita Jules and Bryan Chambers, the glorious singers, make a huge impact with not only their singing but their synchronised dance moves; last night during theShine Onsax solo they mirrored Joos fingers on the keys.

Davids virtuoso playing duringSorrowdrew a standing ovation, and the audience remained on their feet for the encore ofTime/BreatheandComfortably Numb. As David and the band took their final bow, he told them Youve been a great New York audience. Next stop, Madison Square Garden.

Friday night, its snowing, and back to the United Center for the third and final concert in Chicago. Before each concert there is a series of sound effects which have various Pink Floyd references: a plane flying overhead; the sound of a helicopter; birdsong; a man talking. Some may notice, others are too caught up in the anticipation of the concert, cheering the movement of the guitar techs as they do their final tuning.

Last night the fans were on their feet from the start, cheering and roaring on every song, and giving a warm round of applause to Joo Mellos terrific sax solo inUs And Them.

In the audience were Rick Wrights daughter, son and grandson; he is sorely missed and remembered by the songA Boat Lies Waiting, which features Ricks spoken voice.

Steve DiStanislao was again magnificent on drums, powering the band along, and his striking of the bell at the beginning ofHigh Hopesis always a concert highlight.

The lasers duringComfortably Numbratchet up the excitement, matching Davids soloing and providing powerful visual images to accompany one of the most iconic guitar solos in rock history.

The band took their final bow and it was time to leave Chicago and head for the final stage of the tour, New York. Chicago had one final surprise as the band exited the venue: three inches of snow had fallen during the concert.

For the 48-strong crew it was three hours more hard work, breaking the set down, loading the seven trucks and driving the 790 miles through the night to New York.

The setlist had an extra song with the inclusion ofOn An Island.

First Set: 5 A.M.; Rattle That Lock; Faces Of Stone; Wish You Were Here; What Do You Want From Me; A Boat Lies Waiting; The Blue; Money; Us And Them; In Any Tongue; High Hopes.
