David Gilmour has added a pair of shows at Rome’s Circus Maximus to his world tour in support of 2015’s “Rattle That Lock.”

The July 2 & 3 dates at the ancient Rome chariot racing stadium will see the Pink Floyd guitarist play the first ever seated concert at the legendary venue.

Built in 6th century BC, this latest world heritage site show is part of Gilmour’s aim to play his 2016 concerts in historic venues to give fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Tickets for Circus Maximus will be priced from €60 (subject to booking fees) and will go on sale on Thursday April 7 from www.davidgilmour.com at 10:00hrs CET.

There is a limit of 4 tickets per person.

Gilmour is currently playing dates in North America, with three shows in Chicago, IL this week before another three in New York City next week.

The guitarist then returns to the UK for an April 25 stop at London’s Royal Albert Hall before launching his summer European dates in Poland in late June.
