Have you always wanted to see Pink Floyd in concert? Do you wish you could re-live a concert you actually attended? Or are you mourning the postponement of Roger Waters’ North American tour? Either way, now you can stream concert videos via YouTube.
The band will be streaming a weekly series of full concert videos on the Pink Floyd YouTube channel beginning on Friday, April 17. Pink Floyd has been streaming short-form videos for a while, but this will give you even more music to enjoy. The first in the series is from Pulse, which was filmed in 1994 at Earl’s Court in London during the Division Bell tour.
British psychedelic group Pink Floyd was founded in 1965 by Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason. David Gilmour joined the group in 1967.
