Pink Floyd Live in Venice - your memories sought! Print E-mail

Pink Floyd - Venice, 1989Our friend Alberto Durgante, from the dual Italian/English language Floyd fanzine Heyou, is collaborating on a new book - and is seeking the help of Brain Damage readers.

Back on July 15th, 1989, Pink Floyd held a special concert in the lagoon at Venice. Televised across the world, it featured an abridged set, performed on a floating stage. The whole event was, to use an understatement, interesting, with many stories flying around about the conditions in Venice with thousands upon thousands of fans packed in like sardines, rumours of the ancient buildings suffering, gondoliers protesting, and much more.

As Floyd concerts go, it proved one of the more unusual ones, not least for the audience on that long, long day. Alberto is hoping that any of you who were there, either before, during, or immediately after the show, could help them out - he's after "written memories about that old crazy day that was July 15, 1989. If you were there tell us all the funny and crazy things that you have done and seen that day and, if possible, ask your friends to do the same!
