In October 1971, Pink Floyd performed an entire live set in the ruins of an ancient Roman amphitheater in Pompeii, Italy. Though there was no audience, the performance was captured on film and has become a fan favorite across the decades. The group issued the audio from the film in 2016. That same year, former Floyd guitarist David Gilmour performed a concert before a live audience in Pompeii and recorded it for his 2017 release, Live In Pompeii. We’ll hear material from both releases on this episode.
