So, given that 2015 will see a new David Gilmour solo album, let's speculate on what he will and won't play.
To start with, here's a list of songs I don't think David will play without Rick, either because they won't sound right without him or because David just couldn't do it now that Rick is gone. Obviously the list isn't exhaustive but includes tracks which are either Floyd favourites or ones performed in 2006.
- Astronomy Domine
- Arnold Layne
- A "complete" performance of SOYCD 1-5
- Wots... Uh the Deal?
2. On an Island
3. This Heaven
4. Whole of the new 2015 solo album
1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (the same as the 2006 tour)
2. Remember a Day
3. Dominoes / Terrapin
4. Fat Old Sun
5. Coming Back to Life / On the Turning Away
8. Welcome to the Machine
9. Take a Breath
1. Wish You Were Here
2. Louder Than Words
3. Comfortably Numb (with Jon Carin doing Roger-style vocals)
Okay, I think "Dogs" is a long shot, because it's from Animals and it contains the line "Just another sad old man, all alone and dying of cancer" - which may be too soon after Rick and Syd both dying of cancer. But it's a great song with great guitar work and it'd be amazing to see him play it, and let's face it, he surprised us in 2006 with "Echoes" and "Arnold Layne".
