Wildcard Movie: David Gilmour Live at Pompeii

The Music Hall
28 Chestnut St.
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States(603) 436-2400

This movie documents the guitarist’s pair of July 2016 shows at the Pompeii Amphitheater in the ancient Roman city, where his former band Pink Floyd played 45 years prior for their own Live at Pompeii film.

These concerts were the first-ever rock performances staged at the ancient amphitheatre, which was built in 90 B.C. and entombed in ash by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. This makes Gilmour the only performer to play to audiences in the arena for almost 2,000 years – since the time of the gladiators.
