Review

David Gilmour's two concerts assembled for Live at Pompeii mark the first time that the amphitheater has hosted a rock gig since Pink Floyd played there in 1971. They didn't play for an audience, however, they were filmed for Adrian Maben's documentary Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. Gilmour's gigs -- some 45 years after Floyd -- bests their gig historically: It hosted a paying audience assembled from all over the globe, and it was the first time an audience had occupied the site since 79 AD. This double-disc set is the movie's soundtrack. Pompeii was just one of the historic sites Gilmour played on the tour, others included amphitheaters in Verona and Nîmes, Circus Maximus in Rome, a chateau in Chantilly, and five nights at London's Royal Albert Hall, none of which held quite the weight of history like this one. Accompanied by a sextet that included keyboardist Chuck Leavell, bassist Guy Pratt, and a trio of backing vocalists, the repertoire is heavy on material from the guitarist's Rattle That Lock -- the album he was touring at the time, 2006's On an Island -- and Pink Floyd material in all of its incarnations.
