David Gilmour to Play Amsterdam in March

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got my money on Jam in the ‘Dam 2006 as the event of the spring. I won’t hypothesize past that, but with the Black Crowes, The Bays, etc.–this is just shaping up to be one crazy week in Amsterdam.

It did just get crazier, though, if that is the correct word to describe it.

David Gilmour, Mr. 1/2 Pink Floyd himself, is playing a two-night run in Amsterdam from March 19-20, the same dates as the Jam in the ‘Dam festival. Again, this is just getting nuts. If Kraftwerk can find time to fit in a date, I think we could really round out a decent musical spectrum, actually. Not to mention the fact that the cross-pollinations are sure to be once-in-a-lifetime (or at least, Hans wishes)–I just can’t wait.

All of this is going to be documented inside and out on the Live Music Blog. I’ll have my recently-acquired iBook with me on the trip, so that’s something to look forward to, for sure.
