VIDEO: David Gilmour performs on BBC’s Front Row

David Gilmour made a rare guest appearance on BBC2’s “Front Row” program on October 28, and video from the show is streaming online.

The guitarist joined host and noted UK historian Mary Beard to discuss his recently-issued “Live At Pompeii” concert film, which captured his 2016 concerts at the ancient Roman amphitheatre and marked his return to the site 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben's classic film, “Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii.”

Directed by Gavin Elder, the set 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.”

The BBC appearance also featured a live, in-studio performance of “A Boat Lies Waiting”, from the guitarist’s 2015 album, “Rattle That Lock.”

“Live At Pompeii” recently debuted at No. 3 on the UK album charts to deliver Gilmour his fourth UK Top 10 release.

The 2017 project is now available on 2-CD, Blu-ray, 2-DVD, 4-LP, deluxe Blu-ray box and digital download.
