Scheduled Brindley News

Sit down, settle back and get ‘Comfortably Numb’ while you watch a legendary gig by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour at The Brindley.

On 7 and 8 July 2016, David performed two spectacular shows at the legendary Pompeii Amphitheatre in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben’s classic film Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii.

For one night only on Saturday 16 September, the concert David Gilmour Live At Pompeii will be screened at the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn. T

The concert performance film, will include highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder and will be presented in Dolby Atmos sound.

It is a spectacular audio-visual experience, featuring the famous huge circular cyclorama screen as well as lasers, pyrotechnics and stellar performances from an all-star band.

The concerts were the first-ever rock performances played to an audience in the ancient Roman amphitheatre, which was built in 90 BC and entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79.

David Gilmour is the only solo performer to play to an audience in the arena since the time of the gladiators, almost 2,000 years ago.

Speaking about the Pompeii shows David Gilmour commented β€œIt’s a magical place and coming back and seeing the stage and the arena was quite overwhelming. It’s a place of ghosts.”

The show includes songs from throughout David’s career including the title tracks of his two most recent No. 1 solo albums: Rattle That Lock and On An Island.

Also included are other solo and Pink Floyd classics such as Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and One Of These Days, the only song that was also performed by the band in 1971.

Both concerts also saw very special performances of The Great Gig In The Sky from The Dark Side Of The Moon, which David rarely plays as a solo artist.

David Gilmour Live At Pompeii shows an artist at a creative peak, in a unique setting, on a very special occasion and is not to be missed on the big screen.

Tickets are Β£13, Β£11 from and the box office on 0151 907 8360.
