Rock history on screen

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii features performances from an all-star band.

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii features performances from an all-star band.

The digital age makes the world seem that much smaller.

Forty-five years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed Live at Pompeii in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album Rattle That Lock.

The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman Amphitheatre.

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii is an audiovisual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs but, above all, are stellar performances from an all-star band.

The show includes songs from throughout Gilmore’s career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including One of These Days, the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of The Great Gig in the Sky from The Dark Side of the Moon, which Gilmore rarely plays as a solo artist.

Other songs include the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On an Island, as well as other solo and Pink Floyd classics, including Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb.

This concert performance film was shot in 4K by director Gavin Elder.

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii will be shown at Eden Cinemas, St Julian’s, today at 8.45pm. For tickets, visit www.edencinemas.com.mt.
