David Gilmour Live at Pompeii Contest

Share This:

David Gilmour – Live At Pompeii will be released worldwide in various formats on September 29 following a one-night-only presentation of the feature at over 2000 cinemas worldwide on September 13.

To celebrate the release, Best Classic Bands is giving one reader a David Gilmour – Live At Pompeii prize pack including a t-shirt, limited-edition lithograph (already sold-out) and winner’s choice of either the DVD or Blu-ray.

Some background: On July 7-8, 2016, David Gilmour performed two shows at the legendary Pompeii Amphitheatre in the shadow of Italy’s Mount Vesuvius, 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben’s classic film, Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii.

“We were throwing suggestions around for places to play,” says Gilmour. “The minute when someone [suggested] Pompeii, I said ‘go for it, absolutely. You’ll never get it. I don’t think they’ll let us do it. But give it a go.’ They gave it a go and we did it. It brought back all sorts of memories.”

The concert performance film will include highlights from both shows, filmed in 4K by director Gavin Elder, and will be presented in Dolby Atmos sound.

The film includes songs from throughout Gilmour’s solo career, including the title tracks of his two most recent solo albums, 2015’s Rattle That Lock and 2006’s On an Island. The show also features 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 Gilmour rarely plays as a solo artist.
