Roger Waters The Wall Live - cinema screenings

Now posted on Roger Waters' Facebook page is a very special opportunity for us fans to be able to pose questions for the Q&A that follows the screening of Roger Waters The Wall on September 29th at cinemas in various countries. More details of the worldwide, one-night-only screenings through this link.

In a new post, under the heading of The Simple Facts: A Dinner with Nick and Roger, they give details of what's happening after the screening of the concert film. "The PINK FLOYD rhythm section will reunite over the breaking of bread and the answering of questions sent in by you, the fans. ROGER WATERS and NICK MASON, two of the original members of Pink Floyd, will convene for what is sure to be a memorable reunion. In the hopes of having a few laughs, and, in response to your questions, they will rummage through the overstuffed cupboard of skeletons and faulty recollections, hopefully using the opportunity to clear up some of the mysteries before old Father Time, and Davy Jones Locker claim their due, and All That You Touch and All That You See, slides ungentle, into that dark night.

"Maybe for the last time, straight from the horse’s mouth, from the engine room, from the endless toil of stoking the great boilers, leaning weary on their shovels, THE RHYTHM SECTION, their faces grimed with coal dust, lined but open, mopping their honest brows with colorful kerchiefs. NICK and ROGER bring you…..THE SIMPLE FACTS!

"Do you have a question? If you do follow the instructions below and it VERY WELL may make it into the program shown in a CINEMA NEAR YOU, on September the 29th!"

David Gilmour 2015 tourJust announced by the local organisers in Firenze (Florence), Italy, is the move of a number of summer concerts due to be held at Le Mulina Teatro.

This is sited a few hundred metres from Mulina, and tickets already purchased remain valid for the new venue.

Pink Floyd themed play in UK pub next month Print E-mail

King's Head, LichfieldNews of one of the more unusual Pink Floyd related events has come our way - the 15th century King's Head pub in Lichfield, Staffordshire is hosting what is being described as a "1960's counter-culture 'happening' on the evening of Thursday, July 16th at 7pm.

Creating the event is the Fired Up Theatre Company, who in 2012 staged a production of The Wall at the nearby Tamworth Assembly Rooms. Poetry, film, music, readings and chill-outs are part and parcel of the evening and anyone who wishes to take part can do so, providing their work has a theme in keeping with the event.

For Pink Floyd fans however, the core piece of the event is of particular interest, namely a short play entitled The Last Pick Up?, an imaginary tale relaying the events leading up to the band's decision not to pick up their charismatic leader Syd Barrett for a gig at Southampton University.

Entrance is pay what you want - although in the true intimate style of pub theatre there are a limited number of spaces at any one time. For more details: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
