Deal alert / David Gilmour: Live in Pompeii four-disc deluxe box

As the pre-order options for the newly announced David Gilmour Live at Pompeii release slowly feed through, it would be remiss of SDE not to highlight a very competitive price for the deluxe box set edition on Amazon Italy.

The 2CD+2blu-ray package (which exclusively contains a bonus blu-ray full of content) is just £28 (€32) on the Italian site, massively cheaper than anywhere else. In fact the 4LP vinyl box is also a bargain at only £42 (or €49). One caveat is that the UK prices aren’t live yet, but they’ll be doing well to better these, I think.

Gilmour has done a good job with his recent releases (Gdansk and Rattle That Lock) so this was an easy decision for me. I just wish he would tour a wider variety of places. I could maybe handle the hundreds of dollars the tickets cost, but not the travel costs.


For the 2DVD Edition at amazon.it you will find the german (!) description:
David Gilmour Live at Pompeii erscheint weltweit am 29. September in folgenden Formaten: “Doppel-CD (mit 21 Tracks), Einfach-Blu-Ray, Doppel-DVD, Blu-ray + CD Deluxe Edition Boxset (2 CDs und 2 Blu-rays), Vierfach-Vinyl und Download”
So Paul is right, there is no 4 CD edition. I don’t need the CDs so I will have to decide how important the Boni on the second BluRay are. I bought the two BluRay version of Waters Wall and found nothing on the second disc that was worth the price (or not to be found on Youtube).
@Mike: amazon.com says for the single BluRay: All Regions


I’m from the U.S., are the blu-rays region free?



Thanks for the heads up Paul. I purchased over the weekend and looking at the trailer, cannot wait to watch and listen to this. Looks superb!


I wont be buying any more large sized boxsets from overseas amazon again, i ordered the sgt peppers sde from amazon germany, which arrived damaged. When i contacted them, they only agreed to refund around £7 of the return postage (i dont know why it couldn’t have been returned to a uk warehouse and exchanged)
In the end i sold it at a slight loss and didn’t reorder it.


I ordered gift packaging and hope it helps. It’s worth the small extra fee for a little extra peace of mind; better than any partial refund for a damaged product.


I watched a Dave interview lately and it included footage of Dave being at and discussing this gig. The package looks nice and I have bought a ton of collector’s blu-rays for nice packaging like this and what is certain to be great material. This checks both boxes, and getting a nice price is the win.

And what’s the betting that the UK Amazon price is more than any of the other listed prices for the vinyl set!

peter chrisp

Paul a massive thanks just a quick note the one from Italy is an amazing price, when you log on the the site the 4discs mentioned seem to be only the audio cd’s & not the bluray can you confirm appreciative. P.C

Paul Wren

I agree with Paul S on this Italian vinyl price being extremely good value – I’ve just placed my order for it, so thanks for another very good price alert.


Thanks for the alert, Ive pre-ordered the 4 disc deluxe for 38€ (incl. VAT&shipping). In my country it can be pre-ordered for 56€…


Probably not an issue for most folk but you don’t get the Autorip, only for Italian customers.


Don’t forget to mention that you don’t get it free of p&p, only for Italian customers as well ;-))


Oh, go on then….

William Kates

Thanks Paul. I just ordered and the price with VAT deducted and shipping added, the total price delivered to the US comes out to around $42. That’s compared to the Amazon US pre-order price which is just under $70.


Must be Gilmour bargain week! Picked up the Rattle That Lock Blu Ray box in FOPP yesterday for £5 so seems right to keep up to date. Thanks as always


Bloody phenomenal. Gracie Paolo.

Paul W

Thanks Paul just orderd the deluxe edition 58 Ausie dollars great price


Thanks! Even though this comes to 40eu in Oz due to postage, I don’t it’ll get cheaper. But if so, I can always change my order. :)

PS – I was in the Pompei arena only a few months ago. They have a pretty good Pink Floyd exhibition inside, which includes a display info about this very event.

Dan Timmons

Thanks Paul. Another US resident who orders from Amazon IT all the time for the deals. I went for both!


ordered yesterday from Germany !! ordered again from Italy both deluxe and LPs going to cancel from Germay now. worth keeping ? and putting on eaby ? are they limted ???
Thanks for heads up can’t see being less on UK ?


I’m tending to pre-order stuff i want to have on several Amazon-sites now and set me an alarm 2 days before date of release so i don’t have to watch the pre-order price on all those sites constantly and be sure not to miss any short -living deal alerts. So i’m going to lean back now and wait if this is going to be any cheaper in another country.


Thanks Paul, snagged that baby!! Super price. 36 Euro’s including shipping to NYC!!!!!


Thanks for the alert, Paul! Sadly for those in US, shipping costs on the Italian site are a bit high.
Offsets much of their deeper discount.


Mooncusser – even with the higher shipping it’s still $14 cheaper than Amazon Germany. $91 for the deluxe box and the vinyl with shipping. Amazon US want $160, plus tax, for the same items.

Mr X

I got last years bowie box set from amazon Italy and it arrived really well packaged – foam surround to keep it secure in the box and not a dent or evidence of transit.
Very impressed!

adam shaw

Thanks Paul
There’s nothing like a SDE deal !

John Hirst

Great spot – thanks Paul – that is a really good price for a set like this.

CJ Feeney

Ordered this deluxe CD/BR set.

Incidentally there are still lots of offers in the Amazon.it vinyl store eg Arcade Fire’ new LP is under 20 Euros in “Day” or “Night” editions

John Johnstone

Thanks Paul, deluxe edition ordered, nice one


Any idea what the region encoding will be for the Blu-Rays?


Thanks. Dirt cheap!

Stefano Dalmonte

Just Ordered!!!! I was in Pompeii for the second date (july 8th, 2016) and it was unforgettable!!!!


Thanks for the heads up Paul. Just ordered the Deluxe and Vinyl sets.


Jumped right at it. Thanks, both covered! :)

Steve Parrott

Thanks for the heads up. I ordered on .de yesterday only to now cancel for the better deal on .it. co.uk only have the CD on at the mo… I doubt they’ll be anywhere near the .it prices on the 4 discs and vinyls


Am i right in assuming that all Amazons don’t take the payment straight away but upon dispatch ? I just bought this and i just realised that my debit card is due to expire in September when this is released i wonder when i update my card on the UK site if it will automatically update on the other sites. One last thing i will be gobsmacked if this is less than £40 when it appears on the UK site.

Michel Kempes

Thanks again Paul … LP & BR Box…. Happy happy happy

Michael Leek

Thanks Paul,
Just got the Deluxe set at £27 it’s a bargin.
Should be worth it – the Poland gig was excellent.


The Italian site says “4 audio CDs”. Can’t find a word about Bluray. Is it BR?


The picture shows the br logo.

Frenchy Eric

No thanks Paul !
Just pre-ordered the Gilmour deluxe boxset after having bought the Cave superdeluxe boxset yesterday…
You are going to make me a poor man !
Just kiddin’
Thanks A Lot

Jose Miguel

Muchas gracias Paul. No entiendo la política de precios de Amazon, en cada pais un precio distinto y muchas diferencias.

Nigel Jones

Apologies! Should say “no brainer”. Hate predictive text!

Nigel Jones

Cheers! Just ordered deluxe box set. No brainier.
First time I’ve ordered from Amazon Italia so fingers crossed!


Ordered the 2cd/2br. Couldn’t resist. Thanks for the alert Paul.


Great value. Thanks Paul.

Stephen Collman

Thanks Paul – though my bank balance is less amused! Ordered both sets as I tend to predominantly listen to CD via my laptop into Mytek 8X192 converters to ATC SPA2-200 Pro amp into small Quested 108 monitors plus the added bonus of the blurays but I still retain a Gollumesque ‘my precious’ acquisitive fondness for vinyl .

Simon C

Superb price for the deluxe box. Great shout, made my day. :-)


Paul I’m in the US if this is ordered from Italy ( for that great pric) I assume it will be in the Italian language also I noticed you cannot switch to English language on Amazon it


Thx paul


No it will be in english


Thx snoood QQ


Use Google Chrome and you’ll be able to translate the page(s) into English.


Thx Andy !


James – I’m in the US and order from the likes of Amazon Germany and Italy all the time (based on Paul’s alerts!). Everything I’ve gotten from Europe are in English.

I ordered the vinyl and the deluxe box and they came in at $91 inc shipping.


Andy do you just fumbled through the translation when you order ? As I noticed the Italian dialect cannot be converted to English for me. Preorder etc.


James – Amazon have just started adding English language options on their phone app. Go into settings and you can change the country and language – Germany now has an English option for example. The way I also do it is to have the US site product page open next to a non English one – the page layouts are exactly the same, so for Italy I know what each option is now based on that.

Out of all the non-US Amazons the UK one is typically the one I end up buying from as the price shown, unlike the US, includes their sales tax. However, typically Amazon deducts that price by 20% (no tax because it’s being exported) when you go through checkout. For example that recent Pink Floyd box set was $160 less from there vs Amazon US.


Andy, thanks a lot for the insight and valuable information… this particular time I use my iPhone and Italy does not have the auto conversion available but by using Google Chrome as mentioned by Andrew I got it done 41 shipped to California. Now just hoping it’s not the four CD as advertised LOL


Thanks Paul!!! I’ve got my pre-order! Pink Floyd and Gilmour deluxe editions are awesome. Thanks for all your help granting us the best price :)

Paul Mac

It’s £50 on Gilmour’s own website (for the 4 CD version) and I’ve seen it higher than that on some other sites, so this is a no brainer as I can’t see Amazon UK coming in much under this. Ordered (for €37 delivered to Ireland), thanks Paul


Thanks Paul, I`ve gone for the CD/Bluray box, I would have gone for the 4xLPalso but no room at the inn for LPs unless they are essential.


Fantastic, doubt this price will be bettered in the UK or anywhere else. I have ordered the vinyl and deluxe boxset.

Neil Beards

Cheers for the heads up Paul! That’s a great price for what looks like a superb set.
