What about a "Home Again" world tour 


Roger's voice was kinda tired, and too bad we didn't see more of Rick Wright.


But what makes Pink Floyd's music so magic was there, and that's what counts.

They proved me (again) that they were, are, and will stay the biggest band ever.

I think you're wrong.. Roger looked happy as a clam... and Dave looks just like he always did.  In every live PF show I've ever seen, Dave barely moves, hardly ever smiles.. because what he plays is so intense, his concentration is on the music.. not on whats happening around him.  This was the most I've seen him smile and move during a show in the last 20 years...  and he and Roger have been conversing for a couple of weeks now... seems to be going well..

 

Man, where did you get this picture? You mean it's true? It's not Photoshop?? They are actually drinking together? OMG! Incredible!

I have been following Pink Floyd for the past 30 years, since I first heard DSOTM. Yesterday's event was truly fantastic - I guess it is the nostalgia and the expectations for the re-union that made it such a big event. Just fyi - At that same site, 35 years earlier, they did the Atom Heart Mother Hyde Park free concert (I Wish I Was There !!)

You need a bittorrent client. any programs with "torrent" in their name will probably do it.

Yes, its an actual photo from Getty Images taken from an annual well to do garden party held in London.  Dave and his wife, Polly, above attend this every year... seems this year was Roger's first.  Looks like it went really well........

THIS IS ELP

I got a wmv of it last night.   Unless the torrents are really high-res or something, I'll stick to what I've got

Absolutely phenominal!!!  My god....I was seriously choked up.  It was amazing how they looked like they hadn't ever missed a beat in the last 23 years.

Gilmour looked to me like he was ignoring Waters, maybe thats just Gilmours demeanor? I had the MTV and VH1 recordings...so the end was cut out.  But during the numbers I don't think I saw DG look at RW one time.

Waters was thouroughly enjoying himself, smiling..looking at his bandmates, looked like he was really digging it.

Mason was so into comfortably numb, halfway through the song he throws his headphones off, couple secs later they pan back to him and he has his eyes shut.....the Dude was seriously into the groove and was feelin it.

For those guys who love Floyd and missed it......find a way to see it!!!!

You guys got to stop worrying about whether or not Dave was looking at Roger, or if Roger was looking at Dave. Their past differences are really none of our business, and they've either left the past in the past, or they haven't. There's nothing we can do about it. As far as I'm concerned, though, even if we don't get an album or a tour, we can finally say that The Floyd are back together!

Come on man....you can't blame us for hoping and dreaming of what can be.

Yeah, but, "OMG, Dave didn't even look at Roger!", is kind of ridiculous.
