Pink Floyd have joined the bands using the current lockdown to stream some archival concerts.
The band will stream a live gig over on YouTube every Friday, starting today (17 April). The first to be broadcast will be the 1995 Pulse concert.
Writing on Facebook, the band said: “We’d like to wish you all the best, and hope that you and your families are staying safe and well in these difficult times. We will continue to post as normal to hopefully give you some interesting and diverting images, music and video to help us all get through this.”
Starting later today, at 5pm UK time (12pm EST) is the @YouTube Film Festival, which Pink Floyd and David Gilmour are…
Pulse was taped at London’s Earls Court, during The Division Bell Tour in 1995. It features a 22-song setlist, including the entirety of Dark Side of the Moon – the first filmed performance of the entire seminal LP.
Take a look at the first concert at the following link, when it premieres at 5 PM GMT today (17 April 20), and if you’re truly bored during quarantine maybe pull up a copy of The Wizard of Oz on another screen when you hear the opening of Speak to Me.
Pink Floyd aren’t the only band streaming full concerts from lockdown – take a look at our rundown here.
