syd London's Barbican Hall hosts a special evening in May as a tribute to the late Syd Barrett. The event, on May 10th (the day before Roger Waters plays two nights at the capital's Earls Court as part of his DarkSide Of The Moon tour), promises special guests and rare film footage.

Billed as "Madcap's Last Laugh" the event kicks off at 7:30pm and forms part of The Barbican's Only Connect series, which sets out to explore the boundaries where music, film and art meet.

Tickets for the event, priced at £15, £20 and £25, are now on sale through this special link, and more information on The Barbican itself can be found at
