Pink Floyd Reform For Live 8 Show

I never thought it would happen.

I only wish I could somehow be there.

Anyone know if it will be televised in Canada?

I dunno about television, but AOL is going to be streaming it live on the Internet.

I'll be watching Floyd, in the hopes that Roger Waters and David Gilmour get into a knock-'em-down, hair-pulling, eye-gouging brawl onstage. I'll be sorely disappointed if it doesn't happen.

I'm so excited I can't see straight. Unfortunately, the tickets for Live 8 London are not for sale.

I would pay damn near anything to get even one ticket for that concert.

But.....

I guess that's why the tickets aren't for sale.

I saw The Division Bell in Edmonton on their last tour - without a doubt one of the best concerts I've ever seen. Outdoors (Commonwealth Stadium), a beautiful evening. Sigh.

They got Syd to leave his basement?

Oh - you mean that Pink Floyd.

Ok, then.

La La La. I can't hear you.

Reason being that I had to chose between that concert and my best friends wedding (the wedding, not the movie).

I too would pay anything for those tickets and the flight over there.

I hope it's televised. I'd hate to watch some crappy AOL stream.

Maybe they'll tour...

i'd like to say that i'm shocked, but i'm not.

live8 tickets are showing up on the UK branch of ebay.

encouragingly, there is a online movement making the bids ludicrously high, i.e. 11 of the 12 pairs of tickets on offer are already over 1 million.
