Pink Floyd not at Live 8 concert, and PULSE DVD update Print E-mail

We have had loads of emails from people worldwide (thanks to you all!) regarding the rumours of Pink Floyd reforming (WITH Roger Waters, too) to appear at the "Live 8" concert that speculation says will be happening at the start of July.

We have heard back from the band's PR company, who categorically state that they are not appearing, and we also spoke with Pink Floyd's management (PFM) today, who confirmed that all the talk of the band reforming is simply rumour - there are no discussions between the band members past and present ongoing, and no intention to open discussions.

Obviously if things change, we'll let you know. Bear in mind, though, that "Live 8" has not yet been officially confirmed as an event that will happen... Bob Geldof, who organised the original Live Aid show, recently denied that any show would take place, however, he is expected to officially announce the show and full details on Tuesday May 31st. Sting has already admitted he is committed to the concert, having been told by Geldof that he would be appearing!

There are also rumours that the band will be appearing at this year's Glastonbury Festival. Again, no truth in this at all.


Whilst speaking to PFM, we thought we'd ask about the long-awaited PULSE DVD. Work is still ongoing, and it is now looking likely to be September/October for this two-disc set, which should include some interesting extras, and the main feature itself has received a fair bit of picture and sound quality polishing.

It is worth reiterating that any versions of Pulse currently being offered on DVD in various places worldwide, are all fakes. This includes copies that pro port to be official limited edition pressings from a few years back.

As and when we have more information on PULSE and other releases, we will of course let you know... and our thanks to PFM for the update!
