David Gilmour Live at Pompeii - one week to go Print E-mail

With just one week to go, tickets are selling extremely well for the eagerly awaited concert recording of David Gilmour Live at Pompeii, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder and presented in Dolby Atmos sound. The film, being shown in cinemas worldwide on September 13th, is a recording of the pair of spectacular concerts held at the ancient Roman amphitheatre on July 7th and 8th last year.

Having seen the film last night, at a special preview screening in London's Soho district, we wholeheartedly recommend you do your best to see this in a cinema near you, if at all possible. Cinema audiences will get a special treat: a bonus documentary, which is only being shown with the film. This is a relatively short but interesting insight into the brace of concerts. This appears before the main feature.

The film itself is quite remarkable. An edit of the setlist for the two shows, there are highlights after highlights - those of us who were there will recall just how good the performances were each night, and that translates perfectly onto the screen. The camera work is spot on (with the 4k filming giving great detail and colour palettes) and the audio truly stunning. If you are able to see the film in a cinema equipped with Dolby Atmos, do so - the experience is quite something, with the power, the clarity, and the sense of almost being there in the amphitheatre. Particular highlights for me from the film inevitably included In Any Tongue, A Boat Lies Waiting, a superb Comfortably Numb, and Run Like Hell - in Pompeii, it was truly "turned up to 11"!

Finally, September 29th sees the arrival of the recordings on 2CD, Blu-ray, 2DVD, a 4LP boxset, a Blu-ray and CD deluxe edition boxset, and via HD digital downloads. Other gems too are present on the deluxe boxset, including the acclaimed BBC documentary Wider Horizons.
