VIDEO: David Gilmour rocks 1971 Pink Floyd classic on Live At Pompeii

David Gilmour is streaming video of his performance of the 1971 Pink Floyd classic, “One Of These Days”, from his forthcoming concert film, “Live At Pompeii.”

The opening track on Pink Floyd’s sixth album, “Meddle”, was the only song Gilmour delivered in his 2016 series of shows at the Roman amphitheatre that was also performed by his former band in the same venue in 1971 for Adrian Maben's film, “Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii.”

Due September 29 and directed by Gavin Elder, “Live At Pompeii” sees Gilmour mix solo tracks and Pink Floyd classics, including the rarely-played “The Great Gig In The Sky” from “The Dark Side Of The Moon.”

“It's a magical place,” explains Gilmour, “and coming back and seeing the stage and the arena was quite overwhelming. It's a place of ghosts and I couldn't help but think of playing there – with [late Pink Floyd keyboardist] Rick [Wright] – it's a sense of revisiting history.

"What I like to do is to play in beautiful places where people have a sense of the majesty of the building that is being performed in and that will add to the memories they take away and retain thereafter.”

Available on 2-CD, Blu-ray, 2-DVD, 4-LP, deluxe Blu-ray box and download, “David Gilmour Live At Pompeii” will debut in more than 2,000 cinemas worldwide on September 13.

Tickets for the theatrical screening are available via
