Mark this one in your diary. David Gilmour will be performing two shows at Pompeii on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th July 2016. Rolling Stone had originally reported that David will probably play at the site’s Roman Amphitheatre, rather than the Large Theatre where the documentary “Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii” was made. However, it’s since been clarified that David will be performing at Pompeii’s Roman Amphitheatre, scene of the original Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. (Confused?

David will have an audience this time, the stone Amphitheatre can hold about 2,000 It’s understood that the concert/s will be filmed in high definition and then screened in theaters for three days before going to DVD. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 22nd March at 1pm CET – from DavidGilmour.com.Tickets are priced at €300 each plus a 15% booking fee.You will be limited to two tickets per person for one show only (not both).
