Legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour will play himself into the history books tomorrow when he becomes the first British musician to have a live performance beamed into more than 160 cinemas across North America.

Gilmour's brief set from 8pm GMT at the Ritzy Cinema in Brixton, south London, will be satellite broadcast into National Cinemedia-operated movie theaters in the U.S. and Canada.

Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera will host the "stage and screen" event, which will include a Q&A with Gilmour's international audience and highlights from the DVD "Remember That Night - David Gilmour Live At The Royal Albert Hall."

The six-hour, two-DVD set documents Gilmour's acclaimed May 2006 Royal Albert Hall concert gig, part of the singer's "On An Island" tour.

Gilmour's band on the night featured original Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright and Manzanera, while special guests David Crosby, Graham Nash and David Bowie also took to the stage, the latter delivering versions of Floyd classics "Arnold Layne" and "Comfortably Numb."

EMI Records will release the DVD in the United Kingdom on Sept. 17.
