It may not be big news to you, but I was PSYCHED when I read that the original members of Pink Floyd were going to reunite to perform on July 2nd at Londons Live 8 concert. So many of us have been waiting for this for years, 24 to be exact. Here is the news, fresh off of Floyd’s website:
It was confirmed today that Roger Waters will join Pink Floyd to perform at the Live8 concert in Hyde Park on 2nd July.
David Gilmour made the following statement:
“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. It’s crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations. Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if re-forming for this concert will help focus attention then it’s got to be worthwhile.”
