Having performed at the venue in 2015, David was obviously happy with the Arena di Verona, returning for another pair of shows. This is the second of the two performances to take place here in 2016.

The Arena was built in the 1st century, is still in use today and is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances given there.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played!

The second night in this Roman amphitheatre saw quite a changed set from the first night, with songs moving position in the running order, and the odd song switched out in favour of another. We hear that David and his band were on top form, but as ever, we'd love to know in more detail how the concert went from people in the best position to report back. So, did you go? Let us know what YOU thought!

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Alberto Durgante (Heyou fanzine/Floydseum)

David Gilmour has performed for over three hours in front of a very warm audience during the second night in Verona. Apart from some technical problems with a projector during half of the first set, the show was really great with David and the band enjoying the wild audience and playing very well including the songs "The Great Gig In The Sky" and "Astronomy Domine".

The final lasers used during "Comfortably Numb" literally brought the audience to madness!
