Forty-five years after Pink Floyd played a historic show in Pompeii, Italy, that was captured on one of rock's greatest concert movies, David Gilmour – the band's guitarist and singer – will return for a pair of shows there this summer.

Pompeii Culture Minister Dario Franceschini (via Consequence of Sound) announced the concerts on Twitter today. The dates (July 7 and 8 at the Pompeii Amphitheatre) are part of Gilmour's current tour, which started last year.

You can see Gilmour's updated concert schedule below.

Pink Floyd famously shot Live at Pompeii in October 1971 without an audience. But they stuck to their touring set list of the time, which included epic versions of concert favorites "Echoes," "One of These Days" and "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun." (The movie played in theaters the following year.)

Gilmour released his latest solo album, Rattle That Lock, last year – his first since he announced that Pink Floyd were over. In 2014, the band put out The Endless River, an LP made up of session outtakes from 1994's The Division Bell. The album was completed as a tribute of sorts to keyboardist Richard Wright, who died in 2008.
