Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour May Have Played Last “Comfortably Numb” in 2016

David Gilmour may have played his final rendition of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" in 2016, as he expressed reluctance to revisit the band's 1970s catalog. Fans can still experience the iconic performance through a concert film and live album.

David Gilmour, the iconic guitarist of Pink Floyd, may have played his final rendition of the band’s classic song “Comfortably Numb” in 2016. In an interview, Gilmour expressed his unwillingness to revisit the Pink Floyd of the 1970s, which could mean that this performance will be the last time he plays the legendary solo in concert.

The performance took place during Gilmour’s Rattle That Lock tour in Pompeii, Italy. The concert was filmed and released as a concert film and live album, showcasing Gilmour’s incredible guitar skills and powerful vocals.

“Comfortably Numb” is a fan favorite and one of Pink Floyd’s most well-known songs. The track, written by Gilmour and Roger Waters, is a standout from their iconic album The Wall. The song features a memorable guitar solo that has become synonymous with Gilmour’s talent and the band’s legacy.

In the interview, Gilmour shared his thoughts on revisiting Pink Floyd’s music from the 1970s. He stated, “I’m not particularly keen on going back to the old Pink Floyd catalog. I feel as though I’ve done it. I’ve been there, I’ve done it, I’ve got the t-shirt.”

This sentiment is understandable, as Gilmour has been performing with Pink Floyd since the late 1960s and has played these songs countless times. However, it is bittersweet for fans to think that this could be the last time they hear Gilmour play “Comfortably Numb” live.

Gilmour’s performance of “Comfortably Numb” in 2016 was nothing short of spectacular. His guitar playing was as powerful and emotive as ever, and his vocals were just as haunting as they were in the 1970s. The concert film and live album are a testament to Gilmour’s incredible talent and the enduring legacy of Pink Floyd.

While it is uncertain if Gilmour will ever play “Comfortably Numb” again, fans can still relive this iconic performance through the concert film and live album. And even if this is truly the last time we hear Gilmour play the song, his legacy and impact on music will continue to live on.
