David Gilmour and his wife planned to take on a short “words and music” tour to support the release. However, the COVID-19 pandemic shut down most of the live events, for the time being, instead, the sweet couple and their entire family gathered together launching an online event. 

During the live stream, Gilmour’s, Samson read from her book, which is set on the Greek isle of Hydra in 1960, featuring Leonard Cohen.
