David Gilmour’s ‘Live at Pompeii’ Getting CD and Blu-ray Release
David Gilmour's historic return to Pompeii for a pair of live dates in 2016 will make its way to home audiences later this year with the CD/DVD/Blu-ray release of the Pink Floyd veteran's latest concert recording, Live at Pompeii.
Set to arrive in stores on Sept. 29 and available to pre-order now, the Live at Pompeii package is being offered on four-LP vinyl, in a double-disc audio-only package, a film version that adds a "Pompeii Then and Now" documentary and a deluxe box bundling the CD with the film as well as a bonus Blu-ray offering additional concert footage from Gilmour's 2015-16 tour. A complete track listing is offered below.
"In 2015 David Gilmour set out to play a series of concerts in historic venues across the world. The following year he became the first performer to play the amphitheater in Pompeii in front of a live audience since the gladiators in 79AD," explains a press release quote from Gilmour's wife and frequent collaborator, Polly Samson. "It was a return to Pompeii for David, having first performed there in 1971 for Adrian Maben’s legendary concert film, Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii. In Roman times the Pompeii amphitheater was known as a 'Spectaculum' and David worked with longtime collaborator and maestro of color and light Marc Brickman to bring the spectacle back to the Spectaculum."
As previously reported, the Live at Pompeii movie is scheduled for a one-night-only screening at more than 2,000 theaters on Sept. 13. For a look at your local listings — or to try and request one at a theater near you — visit the Live at Pompeii theatrical event website.
