“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,” Pink Floyd said in a statement. “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.”
Lining up their first release for Friday, April 17th at 4pm GMT, Pink Floyd will share their 1995 concert film, Pulse, which was famously performed at the now-demolished iconic venue of Earls Court during The Division Bell Tour.
The film, which will be available to stream for free, features the first-ever recording of Pink Floyd playing The Dark Side of the Moon in full. The show, amazingly, and features some of the raw and original visual components which were remade for the 1994 tour dates.
