The screenings have been postponed. More details will follow.
Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sound Of Thunder concert film is coming to theaters for the first time ever. The film will appear on the big screen one night only on October 15.
Culled from Pink Floyd’s August 1988 run at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, Delicate Sound Of Thunder went straight to VHS and other formats in 1989. The concerts came as part of Pink Floyd’s A Momentary Lapse Of Reason Tour, the legendary band’s first without bassist Roger Waters and first featuring just the three remaining members: guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Richard Wright, along with a backing band.
The recordings from Delicate Sound of Thunder were also made into a live album of the same name. The tracklist contains a number of songs from the album, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, as well as Floyd classics like “Time,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Money,” Comfortably Numb” and more. The film has been restored, remixed and re-edited for the theater premiere. Tickets go on sale on August 27. Head here to purchase.
In 2019, a reissue of Delicate Sound Of Thunder came as part of Pink Floyd’s box set, The Later Years 1987–2019. Watch “Run Like Hell” from the resissue below:
