Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii

One of the most iconic concert movies in a landmark performance by one of the greatest bands of all time. What more is there to say? When Pink Floyd got the permission to film a small set right in the middle of the ruins of the abandoned city of Pompeii, it was truly a match made in Heaven. The haunting music (my favourite track: “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun”) is a perfect fit to the eerily deserted roman ruins. Watch, listen, and take a trip back in time, to 1971, to 79 AD, and beyond.
