Pompeii on ARTE

I know you probably have the DVD or Blu-ray and have seen it several times by now, but you might like to tell your friends and family that the 60-minute version of Live at Pompeii is on ARTE, the European Culture Channel, tonight (11.15pm and/or 11.35pm Central European Time) – available until 21st January 2018 at arte.tv/de and arte.tv/fr. I’m sure they’ll thank you for it.

All that’s left to say is: Merry Christmas, everyone. Thank you so much for another year of good company and humour.

The chatroom has just opened, and will be open until at least 6pm (UK), so please feel free to drop by and share some festive cheer; there’s plenty for everyone, so don’t be shy.

  1. Hello Fed and Everyone 🙂

    I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, my relative is still in hospital and you don’t want a miserable wet blanket in here moaning. 😀 I have a smart phone now . . . but can’t fathom out how to work it so I can’t make it to Chat (again). So, I’ll take this opportunity to wish Everyone a Very Merry Christmas.

    2. Dear FEd & Fellow Bloggers~

      I apologize for using this blog to express being distraught in July.

      Do not want to be “A wet blanket”.

      Thoughtfully, Suzy

  2. Dear FEd and All Irregulars,

    It’s been another great year on the David Gilmour Blog, which as always, FEd sets us up with interesting, topical and thought provoking subjects to kick around; which shows both the humorous and serious side of the blog discussions! Either way we are always most appreciative!

    Wouldn’t it be great if David could announce and grace us with a new album and tour in 2018 to lift the winter blues! (Well that’s what I told Santa.) 🙂

    I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year 2018!

    Shine on……
    John 🙂

  3. I wanted to join the chat today, but sadly was too late.

    Anyways, I’m wishing you all a merry christmas!

  4. Happy Christmas time everyone! Sorry I’ve missed you before FEd. Have a great break!


  5. I want to take this opportunity to wish David, Polly, his family, and all the good people that blog here Happy Holidays and may the New Year bring you all success and comfort.

    Also, a very special Holiday greeting to you FEd and thank you for all that you do for us. I hope you realize just how appreciated you are to us all. Thanks for all that you do in the care of this awesome blog.


  6. A Festive season observation! Has anyone noticed the box that ‘Heston mince pies’ are sold in in Waitrose? It shows a lemon with a sprig of holly for a face standing up in a pastry case ‘boat’ with a cinnamon stick for an oar. Reminded us of the cover of ‘The Endless River’ or in this case the Endless mince pie!!!!!

    Have a very Merry Christmas to all and a safe and Happy and Healthy New Year.

    Best wishes from Heather

  7. Dear Fed, ty so much for the link, what an awesome concert, like all of David´s. I wish you would still send out the emails with the info about the chatroom times etc, so then I wouldn’t miss them anymore. But thank you for all you did and do for us, and please keep up your great work.

  11. What an amazing performance! Loved the band, the backing vocalists were outstanding! And the setting was captivating and beautiful.

    There’s so much that David has done that you think he can never top, then he just goes out and does it again even better.

    Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

  12. I’m so sorry to hear that Ash. Sending my best wishes.

    I hope everyone had wonderful holidays. Happy New Year to you all!

  13. Hi FEd, I hope you and your family had a happy time during Christmas holidays.

    I just checked on Sky Arte (Italy) it will be possible to see the movie Friday morning at 2.15 and maybe in the next days too.

  14. Welcome back to David and Polly from their wonderful journey. I wish you my warm greetings of a promising and full of health, happy new year. Love.

  15. May the New Year hold the hope of more understanding, care, and kindness. Less judgement.

    Take care, Suzy

  16. The New Year is starting out beautifully with a full moon on the 1st then a second full moon the 31st that will be a lunar eclipse blue moon.

    A good start to 2018.

    Take care, Suzy

  17. Here is the list of the best albums and reissues of 2017 (voted by listeners of Classic 21 radio station).

    And the winner is…

    Hip hip hip hourra!

    Bonne année à tous.

  18. Happy New Year to everyone !

    Let us hope we have a few opportunities for blogger/Irregular get-togethers.

  19. Starting the year off by listening to Live At Pompeii. 5AM starts like manna falling gently from the sky to cover my soul in nourishment. My whole being is reset, calmed, optimized.

    My god but this is magic.

  20. Happy New Years Fed . I hope that you’ll have a great 2018 . Plus I haven’t been around for a while and truly missed everyone .

    Take care , Thomas

  21. Happy new year to everyone. Best wishes to all for the new born year.

    Let this new season surprise us with a new album or tour by David, our a new PF reissue. Pulse on vinyl or a full box filled with Momentary Lapse era recordings…

    2018 is the anniversary of David’s first album too, a new edition with a shiny 5.1 by Andy would be amazing too!

    And well… we have Roger’s tour to feed our nostalgia in the meantime!
