45 years after Pink Floyd's David Gilmour filmed Live At Pompeii in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned 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 amphitheatre, 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, released on DVD and Blu-ray 29th September 2017 from Columbia, is an audio experience on its own, while the audio-visual spectacle features lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs. Paramount, however, is the incredible music: 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 1971 show.
Both concerts also saw very special performances of The Great Gig In The Sky from The Dark Side Of The Moon which David rarely plays as a solo artist.
David Gilmour: Live At Pompeii 2017 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.
