Set List: David Gilmour Lights Up the Hollywood Bowl With Pink Floyd and Solo Classics

David Gilmour opened his North American tour on Thursday and Friday night at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl with a long show of both Pink Floyd classics along with music from his latest album Rattle That Lock.

Seven of the ten Rattle tracks were part of the two sets plus encore including opening the show with the first three tracks of the album. Special guest David Crosby was on hand to sing on A Boat Lies Waiting, on which he also sang on Rattle with now estranged singing partner Graham Nash. He remained on stage during the first set for The Blue, returned in the second set for On An Island and, finally, again in the encore to sing Comfortably Numb.

The Pink Floyd numbers covered many fan favorites (Money, Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb) along with cuts going back as far as their 1967 debut album up to 1994's The Division Bell. No material was included from their latest, The Endless River (2014).
