Anyone See Pink Floyd?

Last night on Channel 7 (ABC) was the Live 8 concert/Africa awareness show. Pink Floyd took the stage with Roger Waters on bass...first time in some 20+ years. Right next to RW was David Gilmour. They didn't seem to look at each other during their set, but they wern't throwing things at each other, so I guess it was a success.

I actually didn't know the concert would be on last night, but by chance my wife turned it on right in the middle of the PF set. Thank you, Ericka. They sounded quite good in my opinion. I would have liked to hear their introduction, and if any words were exchanged on stage. So, did anyone else see it? What did I miss, and what are your thoughts on the performace (and are you pissed that ABC cut off the end of "Money")?


  1. I didn't quite catch this but was told Roger said something like "it's great to play with the band again."

  2. It was hard to watch it through the tears in my eyes. I'm not sure if I was so moved by the nostalgia or by the realisation that we are all getting older very fast.

  3. If you notice at the end of Breathe, Gilmour sings the lyrics, "it's good to warm my bones beside the fire" and I am almost positive that at that point Gilmour smiled at Waters and then the camera went to Waters smiling. Plus, the cameras aren't on them all the time, so maybe something was missed. All in all though, a great performance.
