The guitarist is set to play two dates in Pompei next month
David Gilmour has performed Pink Floyd track ‘One Of These Days’ for the first time in more than 20 years.
Gilmour and his solo band performed the track during their set at the Plac Wolnosci in Wroclaw, Poland earlier this week. It was also the first time he has ever performed it as part of his solo set. You can watch footage of the track below.
The ex-Pink Floyd man debuted ‘Dancing Right In Front Of Me’ from his recent ‘Rattle That Lock’ LP during a set that also featured tracks from his and Floyd’s back catalogue including ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Run Like Hell’, ‘Time’ and ‘Comfortably Numb’.
Gilmour is now set to play two shows in Pompei in Italy on July 7 and 8 for the first time since Pink Floyd played there in October 1971.
Recording their performance in an empty stadium, the band later released the show as a concert film. ‘Live At Pompei’ remains one of the most popular concert films in musical history.
Earlier this year, he paid tribute to the tragic passing of Prince during a recent performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The ex-Pink Floyd guitarist surprised the crowd by mashing up his former band’s classic ‘Comfortably Numb’ with ‘Purple Rain’.
Gilmour played the show as a special benefit for the Teenage Cancer Trust. He didn’t sing, instead letting his guitar and three backing singers do the work as he closed out the show in style.
This isn’t Gilmour’s first time covering Prince’s magnum opus, either. He also performed the track with Tom Jones in 1992.
