Legendary rockers Pink Floyd are to reunite for a performance at charity
concert Live 8 in London this summer (05).
The band's classic line-up of Roger Waters, Dave Gilmour, Rick Wright and
Nick Mason, which recorded the 1973 classic album DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, will
hit the stage at the 2 July (05) fundraiser for the first time since they last
together in the mid-1980s.
Organiser SIR Bob Geldof, who has denied the Hyde Park event will
specifically celebrate the 20th anniversary of Live Aid, is currently in talks
with Pink Floyd to secure their appearance.
An insider says, "There have been a whole series of calls. Sir Bob is
hopeful we can make this happen."
Sir Paul McCartney and U2 will kick off the charity gig with a performance
of Beatles classic SERGEANT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND, that contains the
opening lyric, "It was 20 years ago today".
