There were a few errors: One of the panels in Mr Screen went pink though in any tongue. One of the lights broke. David stuffed up the lyrics in Sorrow. He hit a few bum notes in Money. But all of those points are irrelevant an an otherwise amazing show. Can’t wait for round 2.

In October 1971, Pink Floyd traveled to Pompeii, Italy for a live performance at the city’s ancient Roman amphitheatre. Only there was no audience in attendance. Production took place over four days during which time director Adrian Maben captured the band performing “Echoes” and “One of These Days” from 1971’s Meddle, along with the title track to A Saucerful of Secrets. After completing the film in Paris later in the year, Pink Floyd released Live at Pompeii to critical acclaim, and years later it remains one of the most popular concert films in rock history. Now, 45 years later, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour is set to return to Pompeii, but this time he’ll be performing in front of an actual audience.
