Music news

Appointment with great music on Tuesday 19 December at 10.55pm on Rai 5 with the concert “David Gilmour Live at Pompeii”.


July 2016: David Gilmour performs in the legendary amphitheater of Pompeii, in the shadow of Vesuvius, 45 years after having played there for the first time during the recordings of the historic performance “Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii”, filmed by Adrien Maben.


The concert includes songs from a selection of solo pieces and some pearls from Pink Floyd’s repertoire, including “One Of These Days”, the only song that was also performed at the group’s concert in 1971.
