David Gilmour shares preview for ‘Live at Pompeii’ movie

music news 11/08/2017

David Gilmour has released a preview for his upcoming concert movie Live at Pompeii.

The movie was shot during Gilmour’s two-night return to the amphitheater at Pompeii during his 2016 world tour in support of his latest album Rattle That Lock.

Pink Floyd recorded a film at the same venue in 1972, but without an audience present.

“It’s an extraordinary place to be because it’s preserved exactly as it was,” Gilmour told Rolling Stone last year. “If you visit any other antiquity-type sites throughout the world, they’re very damaged with what’s gone on over the centuries since their were abandoned. This one was just sealed, so you’re looking at rock surfaces, and the carving of letters and names in the stones looks like it was done yesterday.”

The film will be screened in theaters for one night only on Sept. 13 before going on sale to home video on Sept. 29.
