While the chances of a Pink Floyd reunion remain much closer to 0% than 1%, the rock ‘n’ roll vets are determined to ease the quarantine blues. The band has uploaded Live at Pompeii to YouTube today, which will be available to stream for 24 hours only.
On April 16th, the band announced a weekly YouTube concert series which will see Pink Floyd share unseen, rare, and archived vault material for free over the coming weeks. Pulse, which features Floyd’s 1995 performance at London’s Earls Court, saw a 24-hour release last week, while the legendary October 1971 performance at an empty ancient Roman amphitheater in Pompeii, Italy gets the call this week.
The film will appear as it did in Pink Floyd’s The Early Years box set from 2016 and will stream until tomorrow, April 25th, at 12:00 p.m. ET. During the performance, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason run through songs like “Echoes”, “A Saucerful of Secrets”, “One of These Days”, and more. Enjoy a momentary escape from quarantine and transport yourself to Pompeii below.
