DAVID GILMOUR LIVE AT POMPEII ONE NIGHT ONLY IN CINEMAS WORLDWIDE SEPTEMBER 13th 2017
On July 7th & 8th 2016, David Gilmour performed two spectacular shows at the legendary Pompeii Amphitheatre in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben’s classic film Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii. The concerts were the first-ever rock performances played to an audience in the ancient Roman amphitheatre, which was built in 90 BC and entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. David Gilmour is the only performer to play to an audience in the arena since the time of the gladiators, almost 2,000 years ago. Speaking about the Pompeii shows David Gilmour commented ‘It's a magical place and coming back and seeing the stage and the arena was quite overwhelming. It's a place of ghosts...’.
