David Gilmour Caricature, age 31, shown on stage in Wembley Stadium, London in 1977 during Pink Floyd’s “In The Flesh Tour” also known as the “Animals Tour”.

Gilmour is an English guitarist, singer and songwriter who was a member of the progressive rock band Pink Floyd. He joined the group as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968 shortly before the departure of founding member Syd Barrett. Pink Floyd subsequently achieved international success with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall.

The “Animals Tour”, was a concert tour by the English rock band Pink Floyd in support of their album Animals. It was divided in two legs, one in Europe and another in North America. The tour featured large inflatable puppets, as well as a pyrotechnic “waterfall”, and one of the biggest and most elaborate stages to date, including umbrella-like canopies that would rise from the stage to protect the band from the elements.

The set list was as follows: SET 1: “Sheep”, “Pigs On The Wing (Part 1), “Dogs”, “Pigs On The Wing (Part 2), “Pigs (Three Different Ones)”. SET 2: “Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5)”, “Welcome To The Machine”, “Have A Cigar”, “Wish You Were Here” and “Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 6-9). ENCORES: “Money” and “Us And Them”.

To promote their four-night run at Madison Square Garden in New York City, there was a Pink Floyd parade on 6th Avenue featuring pigs and sheep.

This was the Floyd’s first tour since 1973 not to use female backing singers.

Notably, Gilmour is Godfather to actress Naomi Watts, whose father Peter Watts was a Pink Floyd roadie during the 1970s. He is also an experienced pilot and aviation enthusiast.
