    Default David Gilmour - How good is this guy ?

    One regret I have in life was not seeing Pink Floyd when I had an opportunity to. After watching The Delicate Sound Of Thunder and PULSE, I knew I had missed something great.

    Unfortunately Floyd are history , and Richard Wright is dead, but David Gilmour is still seriously kicking arse. And if you like the above mentioned DVD's, then I think (like me) you are going to be very interested in Gilmour's latest offering.

    45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows that took place on 7 & 8 July 2016, 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, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

    ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio experience on its own, while the audio-visual spectacle features lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs. Paramount, however, is the incredible music: the show includes songs from throughout David'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 David rarely plays as a solo artist. The 2-disc concert CD was produced by David Gilmour, and mixed by Andy Jackson and David Gilmour. The 148-minute concert film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder. DVD and Blu-ray versions contain an extra 7-minute documentary by Gavin Elder ‘Pompeii Then And Now’, while the Deluxe Blu-ray 4-disc box contains the 2xCD version, the 1xBlu-ray version, and a full 207 minutes of extra footage: 11 live performances and 5 documentaries, plus bonus collectables. Vinyl lovers can enjoy a deluxe 4xLP version in gatefold sleeves and a hardback slipcase, plus a 24-page photo booklet.

    ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting on one very special occasion.

    I wish I could see the full Comfortably Numb clip above, but luckily enough 2 of the tracks have been released on Youtube and they don't disappoint. Gilmour's vocal's are still pretty good for a bloke who is 71.

    Comfortably Numb, probably the most 'covered' guitar solo on Youtube and your clip fades out just when it gets started.
    Here is a IMO one of the best versions from the master:




    Also great to see so many of the younger generation in that audience.

    Cobalt instead of coal, EAVs instead of congested roads ...let's get Back to the Future.

    That would be why I said its not the full clip

    We are quite lucky that Gilmour has allowed 2 full songs to be released on Youtube, given that they are trying to sell the DVD.



    Also great to see so many of the younger generation in that audience.
    They are all old now Gdansk was over 10 years ago now. Time flies when it comes to Pink Floyd unfortunately.
    Comfortably Numb at Gdansk was good, but DSOT and Pulse were better, particularly Pulse which is probably one the best single live guitar solos in history.

    Tina plays one of the best covers of it.
