***UPDATE*** This news is offical: Roger Water's Official Site
This information was obtained from the Roger Waters Fan Club and is from REG sources, not Roger Waters' management. Just so you know, we are in no way affliated with either of these organizations.
IN THE FLESH VIDEO ANNOUNCED!!
"According to extremely credible REG sources, the Roger Waters live tour video will be titled:
Roger Waters: 'In The Flesh' and will be released on DVD and VHS tape by the end of November
2000, 'Around Thanksgiving,' we were told. Speaking of both the album and video our contact
said, 'We're working on them furiously at this moment.' The DVD will be the complete show of the
Portland Oregon concert. However, it is not yet clear whether the VHS tape version will
incorporate the entire show or only a majority of it." -RWFC

Pink Floyd Album and Tour Speculation
Posted by pulse on Aug 8, 2000
UPDATE: The following information was proven INACCURATE/FALSE according to the gentleman who first made claims of a new tour and new album in 2001 on the website "A Fleeting Glimpse."
Here is the link: NO NEW TOUR NEW ALBUM
Notice: Before you freak out over the contents of this post, first and foremost understand that I do NOT like posting anything I view as a rumor on this page. What you are about to read should ONLY be viewed as a rumor, so take this as a grain of salt. The reasons why are obvious. I am not familiar with this individual or his sources, but this seemed like such an exciting read I felt our readers should see for themselves. Obviously, if this turns out to be bogus, understand we are in no way affiliated with this individual or his site. Now... onto the gravy...
According to this gentleman's source, Pink Floyd will be back in the studio this Fall to start working on their new album under an EMI label. Work is to begin September/October and will conclude for a release next Spring followed by what is insinuated as the most extravagant Pink Floyd tour yet, maybe even the last. Here are the remaining details.

On July 3rd at 11pm (ET), Turner Classic Movies will be broadcasting the Wizard of Oz along with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon as the Second Audio Program. In case you haven't heard, there is a strange relation between MGM's classic film and the legendary Dark Side. Turner's website explains how to do the synchronicity on your own, and points out quite a few of the similarities between the film and the album.

Forever and ever... the famous last words of a masterpiece by the band whom is legend. Pink Floyd, whom I consider to be the most artistical band in history of which I am a devoted fan, I hope to provide some insight too in hopefully what will be a long lasting relationship with this site. I would like to thank my best friend Mike Markley for putting this great site together. I would like to thank my friends of #pinkfloyd, who sometimes give me a hard time ;) for their words of wisdom. And I would like to take these last few words to say that I will try my best to contribute worthy information that would only be deserved by fans who really do know good taste. Have a great one.

Hi. My name's dave and my nick on efnet is [m1]. Mike and I first met on irc on EFNet in #pinkfloyd. I live in california and I like brunettes and unix :) well, and pink floyd of course.
I'll be seeing all 3 of Roger Waters' shows in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. WOO HOO.

Mike and I first met online in the IRC channel #pinkfloyd. Soon after, he bought pinkfloyd.net and began the fabulous page you see before you. As a professional web designer, I've bugged Mike for the last couple years to let me co-author pinkfloyd.net. Finally, he offered this oppertunity to Dave, Matt, and myself. I'll be keeping my eyes open for the latest Pink Floyd news to bring to pinkfloyd.net, that is if Mike, Matt, and Dave don't beat me to it.
