Join us for a one-night-only presentation of explosive new concert film DAVID GILMOUR LIVE IN POMPEII!
Forty-five years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ at the legendary Roman Amphitheater, he returns for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album “Rattle That Lock.” The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheater, and for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.
David Gilmour Live At Pompeii is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics, and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs. But of course towering above all of it is the astonishing music and stellar performance from a true maestro, and his all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David’s career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics including “One Of These Days” – the only song that was also performed at the band’s original 1971 show. Included as well are the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums – “Rattle That Lock” and “On An Island” – as well as other solo and Pink Floyd classics, including “Wish You Were Here” and “Comfortably Numb.
Both concerts also saw very special performances of “The Great Gig In The Sky” from iconic album “The Dark Side Of The Moon,” which David rarely plays as a solo artist. This concert performance film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder . David Gilmour Live At Pompeii shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.
