The Soldier's Tale
Pink Floyd to reunite for Live 8
Posted by madhack on Jun 12, 2005
After many denials from the band's management, David Gilmour apparently decided Friday that he would like to get the band together for Live 8, according to Brain Damage, one of the most reliable sources out there. Adding credence to this story is a quote from Gilmour himself describing his reasons for wanting to participate and a report that Bob Geldof was the one who convinced Roger to talk to Dave.
The performance has also been confirmed by the official sites pinkfloyd.com (now owned by the band's management) and pinkfloyd.co.uk (owned by EMI Records).
