UPDATE: Unfortunately the cinema release for 15th October has been cancelled.

Cinema distribution company Trafalgar Releasing announced the release of the restored, re-edited and remixed version of Delicate Sound of Thunder in cinemas around the world for a one-night-only event. This was originally scheduled for Thursday 15th October 2020 but has been postponed – we are waiting for the rescheduled date.

Screenings of the 90-minute, 4K feature will take place subject to local venue COVID-19 measures, and tickets will be on sale from Thursday 27th August, with local screening details searchable at DelicateSoundOfThunder.com

Some theatres are able to offer a specially-created Dolby Atmos mix, but please note that dates are subject to change based on the status of local cinema re-openings.

Delicate Sound of Thunder was filmed a year into the triumphant record-breaking Momentary Lapse of Reason tour at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York. Although the actual final live date was in June 1990, this concert presentation celebrated the last shows of 1988 – filmed and recorded over a 5-night run in August.

Directed by Wayne Isham, the Grammy Award-nominated programme was originally available solely on VHS and Laser disc, so this new version will be the first time in cinemas. Sourced directly from hundreds of cans of original 35mm negatives, painstakingly restored and transferred to 4K, the show was completely re-edited by Benny Trickett, under the creative direction of Aubrey Powell/Hipgnosis. Similarly, the sound was completely remixed from the original multitrack tapes by longtime Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson with David Gilmour, assisted by Damon Iddins.

Seen playing alongside David, Nick Mason and Richard Wright are: Jon Carin (Keyboards, Vocals); Tim Renwick (Guitars, Vocals); Guy Pratt (Bass, Vocals); Gary Wallis (Percussion); Scott Page (Saxophones, Guitar); Margret Taylor (Backing Vocals); Rachel Fury (Backing Vocals); and Durga McBroom (Backing Vocals). Film Producers were Curt Marvis and Carl Wyant, and Director of Photography was Marc Reshovsky, with Lighting Design by Marc Brickman.

The set list carefully balances then-new material from A Momentary Lapse of Reason and Pink Floyd classics, including four songs from The Dark Side of the Moon, the anthemic title track of Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and a cathartic Run Like Hell. As a record of the creative power of David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright at their incendiary best, Delicate Sound of Thunder in the cinema is a must-attend event.

Guy Pratt’s Arthritic Thumb Slaps That Funky Bass!

Guy Pratt explaining Pink Floyd’s One Slip and Wearing the Inside Out songs basslines

Guy Pratt, who played bass for Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left in the 1980s, has been doing some explainer/tutorial videos on Youtube for fans to enjoy. His show is called “Lockdown Licks”.

Guy has played bass on lots of famous songs and albums over the years and has a rather impressive resume. He is currently up to episode 4 where he covers a couple of Pink Floyd classics.

Fans that have heard the re-recorded and re-mixed Later Years box set material will notice a lot of Guy’s original material was toned down – the band seemingly wanting a less 80s feel and more a timeless mix. Guy mentions this awkward situation in the video.

Episode 5 will feature Money by Pink Floyd which is of course one of the most famous bass lines from the band. Keep you eyes peeled for that on Guy Pratt’s Youtube Channel.

Anyway, here are the 4 episodes that are currently up, with Pink Floyd being the 4th one. Make sure you check out NPF’s interview with Guy Pratt featuring questions from fans.
