Legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour seems to be having a blast on his latest solo tour, dusting off songs that he hasn’t performed live in over two decades. Back in June he treated Polish fans to his first performance of “One of These Days” in 22 years, but the real fireworks came when Gilmour returned to Pompeii last week. Performing 45 years after Pink Floyd first visited the ancient Roman amphitheater, Gilmour littered his set with rarities such as “One of These Days” and The Dark Side of the Moon cut “The Great Gig in the Sky”.

Now, video of Gilmour performing “The Great Gig in the Sky” has finally emerged online. We should note that the video above wasn’t taken during Gilmour’s initial performance at Pompeii, but it does capture the magic of his current solo tour.
