Pink Floyd guitarist releases live concert as standalone iOS app (world exclusive)

To be released on 19th November is an App for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that will include the full-length show "David Gilmour In Concert" originally released on DVD. It will shortly also be available in an Android version as well. For the first time ever, all the content of an original DVD is contained in an app – including the extras – in a viewable form for portable devices. Is this the iOS answer to DVD's and Blu-ray's? Who knows.

Pink Floyd guitarist releases live concert as standalone iOS app (world exclusive)In 2001 and 2002, Pink Floyd’s singer and guitarist David Gilmour performed some solo dates, originally as part of Robert Wyatt's Meltdown Festival at London's Royal Festival Hall, returning to the venue in the subsequent year. Playing in a solo context, the run of concerts saw David Gilmour performing some tracks with just voice and guitar, and others with a mostly acoustic group including double bass, guitar, cello, drums, a large vocal choir, and the late Michael Kamen on piano and cor anglais. In 2001, Robert Wyatt guested on "Comfortably Numb", while the 2002 concerts also saw contributions from Bob Geldof ("Comfortably Numb") and Pink Floyd's Richard Wright ("Breakthrough").

The app was created by London authoring house The Pavement. Says Andy Evans of The Pavement: "We worked closely with David and his team on the multi-format 'Live In Gdansk' project and followed that up with the DVD menu design and authoring of the 'Why Pink Floyd?' campaign, so it was a pleasure to be able to rejoin forces and take the lead on such a quality programme."

The 2001 songs (concert tracks 1-13) were shot in HD, while tracks 14-16 of the concert footage and the extras were shot in standard definition. The App works exactly like its source DVD – full of rich video and audio material with interactive motion, menu navigation options and bonus extras.

There are no bingo games included, no :).
