David Gilmour performs at the Royal Albert Hall on Sept. 23, 2015 in London, England.

David Gilmour has performed Pink Floyd cut “One Of These Days” for the first time in more than two decades.

Gilmour, playing a steel guitar, tackled the classic instrumental track during his European tour opener at Freedom Square in Wroclaw, Poland earlier in the week. It was the first time Gilmour had played it live in 22 years, and the first time he’d dropped it into a solo set.

The guitar hero also performed “Dancing Right In Front Of Me” from his latest solo LP Rattle That Lock and delved deep into the Pink Floyd vault with such standards as “Wish You Were Here”, “Run Like Hell”, “Time,” “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and “Comfortably Numb”.

“One of These Days” originally appeared as the opening track on Pink Floyd’s 1971 album Meddle. The piece contains a single spoken line, delivered -- and augmented with considerable effects -- by drummer Nick Mason: "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces.”

Gilmour’s solo tour takes him to Rome’s Circus Maximus and then on to Pompeii, where he’s slated to play over two nights in the city where Pink Floyd taped their 1972 concert documentary.
