David Gilmour - Live at Pompeii film release poster

One of the most eagerly awaited concert recordings is now confirmed - so keep September 13th free in your diary! David Gilmour Live at Pompeii, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder and to be presented in Dolby Atmos sound, is a recording of the pair of spectacular concerts held at the ancient Roman amphitheatre on July 7th and 8th last year.

The concerts were held 45 years after David last played there, for the Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii filming by Adrian Maben, and whilst the original performance was without an audience, the shows last year were the first ever rock shows played to an audience in the venue (which was entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79). As you will have seen via the reviews of the two shows on this site, they were incredible experiences.

The film of these shows, using highlights from both nights, should prove just as spectacular and unforgettable. For one night only, on September 13th, over 2000 cinemas worldwide will be showing David Gilmour Live At Pompeii.

The show includes songs from throughout David's career including the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island. Also included are other solo and Pink Floyd classics such as Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band in 1971. 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.

Tickets are now on sale worldwide with more cinemas to follow soon, including Latin America and Central America. Via 'Demand It' if David Gilmour Live at Pompeii is not screening in a specific area, fans can make a request for it by filling out a form on the website, and Trafalgar Releasing will do their best to bring the event to a cinema near them.
