David Gilmour to Guest on NPR’s World Cafe September 6th
David Gilmour will be a guest on NPR’s World Cafe on Wednesday, September 6th at 2PM ET. You can listen live online at this location. Gilmour will talk about his upcoming release, Live at Pompeii.
David Gilmour Live At Pompeii will be in cinemas worldwide on September 13th and will released as a live album on September 29th.
45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed Live At Pompeii in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows in July 2016, part of the 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-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. 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.
