Gilmour’s two shows July 7 and 8 last summer marked his return to the amphitheater of the ancient city 45 years after Pink Floyd played that venue to an audience of none for the 1972 film “Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii.”
A 1988 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta first owned by David Gilmour will go on the auction block June 30.
The car, purchased by Gilmour in July 1988, is expected to fetch as much as £1 million at Bonhams’ Goodwood Festival of Speed auction.
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason purchased a similar model at the same time as Gilmour at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy, after Floyd’s Modena leg of its Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. The pair are said to have driven them back to the U.K. following their purchase.
List price for the F40 in 1988 was £163,000. Just more than 1,300 were produced.
Though the car can reach a respectable 201 mph, its interior is spartan, sporting a pair of red body contour seats.
Fathom Events offered a similar arrangement for “Roger Waters The Wall” in September 2015. Also originally billed as a “one-night only” affair, in that case, an additional screening was added immediately after the first one concluded.
Pink Floyd has released a new video featuring an early performance of “Grantchester Meadows.”
The video includes film of the band’s Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Rick Wright in a 1970 KQED (San Francisco) performance and new nature footage shot by Aubrey “Po” Powell of Hipgnosis, set to audio from a BBC performance recorded May 12, 1969.
The song comes from the band’s 1969 album “Ummagumma.”
The video is the first taste of the rarities coming our way when the group releases ‘The Early Years 1965-1972″ boxset Nov. 11.
