The much-anticipated 4 DVD release of the Live 8 concerts was fully announced last month, giving detail of the tracklisting and extra features, and additional international single discs which concentrates on individual shows.

There was fantastic news for Pink Floyd fans, as the headline-making reunion with Roger Waters is included in full on the main set, along with footage of the Floyd's rehearsals for the concert. However, detail on what this entailed has, until now, been sketchy...

We've now heard what the fourth DVD contains in terms of Floyd content. It has ten minutes of the rehearsals, with the band performing Wish You Were Here, alongside interviews with members of the band; you can also see Roger and David Gilmour jokingly reproaching Nick Mason about the finale of Wish You Were Here.

As yet, we don't know which rehearsals are shown - either the dress rehearsals in Hyde Park, or the main rehearsals in the North London studios they used for three days prior to the show. However, with the DVD hitting stores in three weeks time, not long to wait! Our thanks to Nicola from Hey You for the info.

The full press release with track listing, and other details, can be found in our 6th September news story. It really is a mammoth set, and deserves a place in music fans homes - not least, as the proceeds go to charity. It can be ordered through our special Amazon links. Any purchases made at Amazon after entering their site using a Brain Damage link, helps with the running costs, and we really appreciate it!
