On TV | David Gilmour Live In Pompeii

Who: David Gilmour

What: Two Pink Floyd songs to be featured on David Gilmour Live At Pompeii

You Need To Know: David Gilmour returned to Pompeii’s historic Roman amphitheatre 45 years after Pink Floyd filmed the influential documentary Live At Pompeii in the same venue. Though Gilmour filmed the set, there’s one major difference: this show featured an audience.

Marking the first time in history that an audience could attend a rock show in the ancient stone amphitheatre, a press release for the DVD boasts that the 2,600-person audience “stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.”

After recording both performances, Gilmour created a 148-minute concert film pulling highlights from each of the shows, to be released on September 29.

Watch performances of “One Of These Days,” which was also performed by Pink Floyd during their set, and “The Great Gig In The Sky,” a rarity for solo Gilmour shows, below.  Update:  "Run Like Hell" Was also added to YouTube.
