Pink Floyd - 2005 UK Music Hall of Fame update Print E-mail

Back on 8th September we were first to bring you the news that Pink Floyd are amongst the inductees to the 2005 UK Music Hall Of Fame. We have a couple of updates for you, including details of where you can get tickets to the induction ceremony, being held on 16th November at London's Alexandra Palace, and a possible David Gilmour performance.

Whilst a few, less reputable ticket agents and eBay sellers are offering tickets, they are charging significantly more than this official seller - who are selling them at £82 including booking fee. This contrasts sharply with other sources; on eBay, tickets have been seen for around £700!

As mentioned previously, Pink Floyd will not be performing. David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright will be appearing; Roger Waters, who joined the others at July's Live 8 concert, is not expected to be there as he is performing the premiere of his opera, Ca Ira, in Rome on the 17th November - the following night - so will be preoccupied with final arrangements for this show.

As part of the ceremony, the single coming out next week - Ever Fallen In Love - will be performed by the main protagonists on the recording, live. One of these is David Gilmour, but we are just waiting on confirmation that he will be taking part in the live rendition. The single, released to raise funds for Amnesty International, is now available to order through our special Amazon links.

The 2005 UK Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be broadcast on the UK's Channel 4 TV channel, as a two-hour and fifty minute special on the 17th November, at 9pm. However, the great news for Floyd fans across the world is that the BBC's Radio 2 will be broadcasting the whole event live on the 16th.

For those who can't pick up the radio signal, stream all their programmes live via the internet, with every show available to listen to on demand for seven days following broadcast.

More news, and full coverage of this event, as we get it...
