Veteran rockers Pink Floyd have dashed fans' hopes of a comeback after they launched a dramatic countdown to a major announcement that turned out to be the release of an anniversary Cd box set.

The band split in 1995 and briefly reunited for the Live 8 charity gig a decade later (05), leaving fans clamouring for more shows.

They threw fans into a frenzy this week (beg19May14) by setting up a website in reference to the 20th anniversary of their final record, 1994's The Division Bell.

The website featured a digital countdown and a space-themed video with views from the International Space Station set to a Division Bell track, sparking speculation they were planning to announce a reunion tour or a one-off performance for charity.

However, the countdown ended on Tuesday (20May14) with the announcement that the band will release a deluxe edition of The Division Bell to mark 20 years since it first hit shelves.
