Thanks for the in-depth review. The original Pink Floyd Live in Pompei is a favorite of mine, albeit with no audience.

+1 on both counts.

Resurrecting a dated thread...just saw these posts. I was fortunate to attend the first of the two nights at Pompeii. Have to say one of the best concerts Iíve ever been to. A friend and I had gone to his Radio City Show in April, 2016 - and agreed that if we could get tickets, weíd see him at Pompeii. The venue was amazing - it was a warm July evening, and a crowd of less than 3000. Itís hard to express the electricity in the air just prior to the first notes of 5 am breaking out. I had just arrived earlier that day, so was a bit tired...but immediately woke up when the band kicked in. Really a night to remember. Great review of the DVD - I havenít got around to watching it yet as Iím concerned it wonít live up to my memories of the event!

Lucky you!!! Thanks! It was beautifully shot and recorded so it shouldn't disappoint.

Nice review Bob.

If there is one thing that me (55) and father (78) bond over , it is the music of Pink Floyd.

He got me into it as a child

We saw them live in 1994 at RFK. 3rd Row from stage.

He lives in Houston now and I flew down last September to go to the Cinema in Houston that was screening it.

Before I arrived I also order a copy of the original Live At Pompeii to be delivered to his house.

The screening was fantastic and the theater had a excellent sound system, but while I enjoyed it immensely, I felt empty by the absence of Echoes.

So later in the same day we popped in the original DVD and watched on my fathers excellent Home Theater set up.

FWIW, I am old enough to have gone to a midnight screening of the original Live at Pompeii at an art house theater back in the early 80's. I have to say I miss theaters screening these things. I've seen quite a few concert films at movie theaters in the late 70's/80's. I guess MTV killed more than the radio star.

I have to admit, I think the original is still the better performance. For me it was all about Echoes and the band itself as a unit.

Much to my selfish embarrassment, I only learned recently the David Gilmore has said in a past interview that he would never perform Echoes with out Richard Wright.

I felt horrible for condemning what I thought was a big miss on the 2017 show.

The 2017 show is still fantastic, but I have not seen it since the the screening, I don't own the DVD, though my father did buy it. He also has Live at Gdansk too (i bought it for him when it came out) and it's a favorite of his. Mine also. I bought myself a copy as well.

I might buy it now. Thanks for the review.

You are welcome. By the way, David Gilmour Live at the royal Albert Hall features a nice rendition of "Echoes" with Richard Wright. It too was nicely shot and recorded.
