The latest — and final — installment of Pink Floyd‘s free live-concert series is now streaming at David Glilmour‘s YouTube channel.

You can now enjoy a screening of David Gilmour Live at Pompeii, which documents the solo shows the guitarist played on July 7 and 8, 2016 at Pompeii’s Amphitheater, which was built in 90 BC.  The gigs took place 45 years after Floyd performed at that venue for the classic concert film Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii. 

Because Gilmour, unlike Floyd, had an audience when he played there, he technically became the first performer ever to entertain a crowd in the amphitheater since the days of the gladiators 2,000 years prior.

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii was originally released in movie theaters worldwide in 2017.  It features the guitarist performing songs from his entire solo career, as well as Floyd classics like “Money,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Run Like Hell,” “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” and a rare performance of “The Great Gig in the Sky.”

In conjunction with YouTube’s #StayHome #WithMe Film Festival, fans are encouraged to donate money to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
