7 July

For­mer Pink Floyd mem­ber David Gil­mour will be the first mu­si­cian to per­form a rock con­cert in pub­lic in Pom­peii. In 1971, Pink Floyd was the first-ever rock band to play at this his­toric location when it recorded “Pink Floyd: Live at Pom­peii” with­out an au­di­ence. The two per­for­mances are part of the world tour “Rat­tle That Lock”. Forty-five years after the leg­endary Live at Pom­peii, David Gil­mour re­turns to play at one of the most unique and beau­ti­ful des­ti­na­tions in the world. With him, the leg­end of Pink Floyd con­tin­ues to live on in Pom­peii.

In ad­di­tion to the lat­ter, the Bri­tish singer will also treat au­di­ences to a reper­toire of his best-loved hits.
