David’s ‘Hidden’ Talents Added To Amadou & Mariam Show For Crisis
David’s only official live performance this year so far will be one of the ‘hidden’ Crisis gigs, where he will collaborate with Mali superstar duo Amadou & Mariam.
The special show will be on Monday 25th May at a secret venue in Central London; ticket holders will be informed of the venue details on the day prior to the show.
Amadou & Mariam, whose albums include Dimanche à Bamako (Sunday in Bamako) and their latest, Welcome to Mali, are huge David Gilmour fans and were able to meet him at the Mojo Awards a couple of years ago, so it was natural for Crisis to suggest a musical collaboration between themselves and David around their May 24th Jazz Café show. Crisis will receive all proceeds from the ‘hidden’ May 25th gig, which will include support acts, after which Amadou & Mariam will play with their electric band for around an hour, including a portion with David Gilmour on guitar.
As you may have seen from The Blog, tickets are on sale now from SEE Tickets or the Ticket Hotline: (+44) (0) 871 2200260.
Tickets are priced at £25 plus booking fee, and there are a few ‘VIP Tickets’ in the first two rows, at £75 plus booking fee, which include a goody bag.
David has long supported homeless charity Crisis, whose ‘Hidden’ gigs take place in London from now until June 17th. (The venues are ‘hidden’ until 24 hours before the gig, to draw attention to the very serious reality of ‘hidden homelessness’ in the UK.)

The show promises to be an unparalleled evening of quality music, but if you’re unable to make it, please do consider a donation to Crisis – they change lives.
