Holy crap! Saw this last night at the one-night-only nation-wide screening. So freaking good. I'm a casual fan, but this really blew me away.

Literally some of the best guitar tones I've ever heard ever. He played the black strat a lot, but also his old beat up Tele on 2 or 3 tunes. Especially on "You Better Run", with the Tele, I thought "oh, THAT's the sound!" He also played the lap steel 3-4 times. Must be the greatest rock n' roll lap steel player in history! "One Of These Days" was so powerful!

The theater I went to had the volume cranked up, so that was great. The light show was so cool, of course. My friend was the media server tech for the tour, so extra cool connection! I don't know if it'll ever play in theaters again, but if it does, and you're at all a fan of guitar tone, you must see it. Total guitar godliness, but doesn't act like he has a big ego or anything. Also, apparently the film leaves out a couple songs that were played in the live set (was actually 2 sets and an encore), which is even more impressive, because he's no spring chicken! But he never looked tired, or hardly even sweaty.

I'll be getting the DVD (and I never buy DVDs).

I'm a huge Gilmour fan, always have been. He just does things differently and that makes his playing more interesting to me.

I met him at a small hall in Solana Beach a few years back. I was sitting there waiting for a show to start and he and another gent just walked in the door and sat at the table behind me.

Nice guy, humble, a bit aloof but not at all big headed.

His lap steel solo on "High Hopes" is wonderful! I'll be ordering the DVD as well.

If you don't own it, order "Live In Gdansk". His last go before Rick Wright passed.

That's good to know that he didn't big-time you. Seems like a pleasant fella. They interviewed him at the top of the film about going back to Pompeii after all this time.

Forgot to mention that also he played an old (50's?) Les Paul gold top w/ P90s in the sound check before the actual concert started, but not during the live show in the film. Coulda been that he played it just for that one song, which they only showed in the check.

I saw it as well at our Memphis Malco.

If I recall he did play the Goldtop w/ the Bigsby during the performance, cant recall which tune though.

And absolutely majestic performance.

And the venue. Whew !

It got one to thinking that the people that built this place thousand or so years could could never in their wildest dreams image what would be going on in this venue that they built, and if you could transport someone from that time to last nights performance, could they even comprehend what they would be observing ?

It also made you think what will be going on 1000 years from now and what we would think of such advancements.

I saw this movie-concert last night too. It was playing in a fairly large theater that was about 70% full, so the word was out on this showing.

It was really great, and I'd see it again at a movie screening if that is possible.

BTW...my wife also saw this with me, and we were thinking that movie screenings of concerts may be the next best thing for us "older" folks since we don't really enjoy the big concert venues anymore.

I wonder what the world wide ticket sale were for this event? I knew about it. Social media has its pluses, just decided not to go on a week night when it was announced. Bad decision.

Huge fan here - I was lucky to see him on the last tour he did with Rick Wright. I'll definitely be buying the DVD.

I wasn't able to see the movie, but have had the bluray on pre-order for quite some time. DG is an amazing artist IMO.

Yes, Charente, that was it. So powerful on the big screen with a big sound system surrounding you!

Yep, Hammond101, he played that tune, too. Complete with bell. Though I think he used a yellow lappy for the song on the Pompeii show, which he also played on "GGITSky" and I think one other. I think he only used the red one for "One Of These Days". I'd have to see the whole thing again to make sure.

I'm fairly positive the LP was only used in the sound check during the film. They were checking on a song that isn't in the live portion, so I'm guessing he played it during a song that didn't make the Final Cut. (see what I did there?)

Yeah, Stratmanx it was the "Rattle That Lock" tour, right? I enjoyed the tune.

Anyone know what tuning and gauge strings he's using on "High Hopes" ?

The yellow lap,blonde actually is a Fender Deluxe Six. It's is basically a single neck Stringmaster with two single coils that has a blend pot for humbucking mode. I had one for a while. Very cool lap guitar.

He uses Em tuning for High Hopes and One of These Days. Not sure of string gauges, it's been a while.

They are gonna replay it! Highly recommended that you see it in the theater. Very immersive. And I'm telling you, those guitar tones are something else.
