Delicate Sound of Thunder is a Pink Floyd concert video taken from A Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. It was largely filmed during the concerts running from 19 August 1988 through 23 August 1988 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, with some additional footage from 21–22 June 1988 at the Place d'Armes of the Château de Versailles, Versailles, France (used to provide the performance of "The Great Gig in the Sky". Note that the Versailles show was only used for some of the video footage. The audio is from Nassau). It was released on VHS, Video CD and Laserdisc formats. It has never been officially released on DVD. Each song in common with the CD release uses the same performance (except "Run Like Hell" and "On the Turning Away", the latter of which has a different guitar solo at the end) with the audience a little higher in the mix. The remaining three songs—"Signs of Life", "On the Run", and "One Slip"—all come from Nassau as well. The two tracks from the A Momentary Lapse of Reason LP were recorded on 23 August 1988, while "On the Run" was recorded on 19 August 1988. The determining factor in figuring out which of the remaining songs was from which night was the clothing differences, most notably which tie was being worn by Jon Carin. The film was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Long Form Music Video at the 32nd Annual Grammy Awards.
