Pink Floyd at Live 8

Hey its a big deal when Pink Floyd gets back together, including Roger Waters, and plays a live gig.

That happened yesterday in London at Live 8.

There was lots of speculation in the blog world about what they’d play.

Jackson’s buddy Chris whittled it down to this list:

"Shine On"
"Comfortably Numb"
"Us and Them"
"Mother"

He got one right anyway.  They did play Comfortably Numb.  I knew that because they played it again on WEHM this morning when I was driving around.

Brad Feld saw the whole Pink Floyd set live on his computer via AOL and lived to blog about it.

Here is the actual set list according to Brad:

They started with "Breathe In The Air", then "Money", then “Wish You Were Here”, and finished with “Comfortably Numb.”

I missed it, and that’s too bad, because I would have liked to see it.

My kids asked me last week what bands I’d like to see in concert but never have.

Pink Floyd is on that list for sure.

UPDATE:  I got mp3s of the four songs on bittorrent.  Here they are:

Breathe
Money
Wish You Were Here
Comfortably Numb
