Pink Floyd’s concert film Delicate Sound Of Thunder will come to cinemas for the first time this October.
The film was shot in August 1988, in Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum. The 2020 version of the film has been sourced from over 100 cans of 35mm negatives, restored and transferred to digital 4K before being re-edited to match the original.
The sound has also been completely remixed from the original multitrack tapes by longtime Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson alongside Damon Iddins and David Gilmour.
The setlist spans the band’s old and new material, including four songs from The Dark Side Of The Moon (Time, On the Run, The Great Gig In The Sky and Us And Them), the track of Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell. From the then-new A Momentary Lapse of Reason there’s Signs of Life, Learning to Fly, and On The Turning Away.
The screenings are set to happen on 15 October 2020, however, a press release unsurprisingly notes that: “screenings will take place subject to local venue COVID-19 measures,” and that: “dates are subject to change based on the status of local cinema re-openings.”
