    45 years ago, Pink Floyd set up a stage inside the ancient Roman amphitheatre of Pompeii, Italy and performed songs from their 1971 album Meddle. No one was in attendance for the concert, but director Adrian Maben’s footage was heavily featured in the band’s legendary concert film Live in Pompeii.

    On Thursday night, David Gilmour returned to Pompeii for a long overdue follow-up concert, and this time thousands of fans were in attendance. They were treated to an impressive set that included a rare performance of The Dark Side of the Moon cut “The Great Gig in the Sky” as well as “One of These Days”, which was performed by Pink Floyd during their first go-around in Pompeii.

    Check out the career-spanning setlist along with photos and video of the concert below. Gilmour, who was named an honorary citizen of Pompeii in anticipation of his visit, returns to the amphitheatre on Friday night for a second concert.
