Pompeian Amphitheatre

Bob Dylan is going to perform tonight at Pompeian amphitheatre. The amphitheatre is located in the ruined Roman city Pompeii and it is a wonderful location for a live show. Some friends of mine are already there to take part in the concert. I’m sure it will be great! I wish I was there but I haven’t found tickets available. I didn’t buy it with them because I wasn’t sure to be in Sant’Arsenio today… maybe it’s better to take a risk sometimes! Pompeii is only sixty minutes by car to Sant’Arsenio but more then 10 hours to Turin.

Wikipedia about the Roman city Pompeii

‘Live at Pompeii’ (1972) by Pink Floyd is maybe the most famous live concert which has always been performed in this location. The event was filmed and became a legendary and still-famous concert movie. A DVD remastered version is now available in music shops. It is a fantastic music experience and with no doubts my favourite concert film.
Although Syd Barrett had already left Pink Floyd in 1972, his influence was clearly still present in this work. Maybe Syd’s influence has always been present in Pink Floyd’s albums, particularly in Seventies.
Now he has died again… and again we’ll miss him.

Remember when you were young
You shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond

A review of ‘Live at Pompeii DVD’ by about Syd Barret death

See you tomorrow



I see in your blogger a sentence 'I haven't found a ticket available'.What is the function of the word available?Why not just say 'I haven't found a ticket instead?

I always enjoyed live music especially those groups that I like mosty listen to. In Portugal there are many live music events, especially summer festivals due to our great weather on the summer months. Probably you have heard about "Rock in Rio - Lisbon" which is a popular summer festival realized in Lisbon.

Pompeian amphitheatre is very beautifull to do a live concert. An the italian are very nice.

Thanks for all your contributions. This blog has now closed and can no longer accept new comments.
