Pink Floyd isn’t merely a band you listen to; it’s a whole experience. With that in mind, let’s view them in a cosmetic gaze with Delicate Sound of Thunder, a concert movie filmed in August 1988 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sound of Thunder is a live film shot during the band’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour (1988), with extra footage from the Place d’Armes at the Château de Versailles in Versailles, France, on June 21–22, 1988. It was originally released on VHS, Laserdisc, and Video CD. Moreover, at the 32nd Annual Grammy Awards, this was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video.
Featuring David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright at their explosive finest, this enthralling and uplifting performance features an innovative blend of illumination and production, combining the band’s new material along with old Floyd tunes such as “Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1–5),” “Signs of Life,” “Learning to Fly,” “Sorrow,” “The Dogs of War,” “On the Turning Away,” “Wish You Were Here,” and “Us and Them.” The film was reissued on 2019’s Later Years box after being out of circulation for some years.
