David Gilmour gave a rare outing to Pink Floyd’s “One Of These Days” earlier this week.
Gilmour played the instrumental track during his European tour opener at Freedom Square in Wroclaw, Poland earlier in the week. It was the first time Gilmour had played the song live in 22 years, and the first time he’d performed it during a solo set.
“One Of These Days” originally appeared as the opening track on Pink Floyd’s 1971 album Meddle.
Gilmour also played other Floyd songs, including “Wish You Were Here”, “Run Like Hell”, “Time,” “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and “Comfortably Numb”, alongside material from solo albums On An Island and Rattle That Lock.
Gilmour is now set to play two shows in Pompeii in Italy on July 7 and 8 for the first time since Pink Floyd played there in October 1971.
