Pink Floyd to play Live 8 show 
 
Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in the mid-1980s to pursue a solo career.

Veteran rock band Pink Floyd have been added to the list of acts appearing at next month's Live 8 concert in London.

Roger Waters will be reunited with band-members Dave Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright for the show.

The show, organised by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to help fight African poverty, is one of five taking place around the world on July 2.

Meanwhile, pop fans have until midnight to apply for tickets for the concert at Hyde Park.

Pink Floyd to reform for London Live 8 concert
12 Jun 2005 14:49:04 GMT

LONDON, June 12 (Reuters) - Four members of seminal British rock band Pink Floyd will play together for the first time in 24 years at London's Live 8 charity concert for Africa on July 2, publicists for the event said on Sunday.

Guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and keyboard player Richard Wright will be on stage with bassist Roger Waters for their first public performance since they played at London's Earls Court in 1981.

The rock legends will join a star-studded line-up including Coldplay, Elton John and Paul McCartney at the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park, organised by activist rocker Bob Geldof to pressure rich nations to ease African poverty.

"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," said Gilmour.

"Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if reforming for this concert will help focus attention then it's got to be worthwhile."

Didn't they deny they were getting together for this quite a few times? 

GREAT news of course, but I don't want to get my hopes up

to say roger left to pursue a solo career is a gross misstatement....everyone knows he left to go solo because of the abhorrent and materially driven direction in which gilmour was leading the band
the wisest man is deemed insane

I am SO happy. SO SO happy. Even if I won't be able to fly to England or anything, at least I can hear and hopefully see this happen!

I'm so glad Waters and Gilmour were able to deflate their egos enough for this to happen.

WOW, so they aren't the petty children I thought they were.  I just hope Water's doesnt strangle Gilmour wiht a bass string during the show.
