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 played 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".
