Pink Floyd to reform for London Live 8 concert

LONDON, June 12 (Reuters) - Four members of seminal British rock band Pink Floyd will play together for the first time in 24 years at London's Live 8 charity concert for Africa on July 2, publicists for the event said on Sunday.

Guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and keyboard player Richard Wright will be on stage with bassist Roger Waters for their first public performance since they played at London's Earls Court in 1981.

The rock legends will join a star-studded line-up including Coldplay, Elton John and Paul McCartney at the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park, organised by activist rocker Bob Geldof to pressure rich nations to ease African poverty.

"Like most people I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the third world," said Gilmour.

"Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if reforming for this concert will help focus attention then it's got to be worthwhile."

The band released their first album "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn" in 1967 and broke records with 1973's "The Dark Side Of The Moon", which remained in the American album charts for more than a decade.

In the 1980s relations between Waters and the rest of the group soured, with Waters suing over the rights to the Pink Floyd name.

Gilmore, Mason and Wright continued to record and tour as Pink Floyd, releasing their last studio album "The Division Bell" in 1994.



Maybe if we're lucky they'll settle their differences and make a new album...

Wow, I can't believe that no one else is as excited about this as I am. I wish I could see the show (amazing show by the way: elton john, paul mccartney, pink floyd, u2, rem, + more), but I don't have a passport or the money to get over to good ol' London. Too bad the philly show is bad, not to mention ironic (50cent? for a peace/poverty concert? wtf?).

and please please everyone pray (even if you don't believe in prayer) that Pink Floyd will get together for 1 last album...it'll be for the good of mankind  :grin: :stoned:

blkhole, do you ever look in the Pub?

There were about 18000 threads on it, that's probably why no one posted in this one. :smile: :shrug:

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

I rarely look at the pub, never found anything in there too interesting. I even did a search before I posted it and nothing popped up but I guess I was wrong. still, it's great news
