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

One of a few truly historic venues on David's Rattle That Lock tour, and a night which concluded the pair of shows in Rome, in style. As ever, the Italian audience were enthusiastic and welcoming, and in terms of set, Astronomy Domine (performed on the first night) made way for One Of These Days again. Next stop, Pompeii...
