DVDs Reveal 'Pulse' Of Pink Floyd, Gilmour
The project was originally released on home video in 1995 in conjunction with a double-disc CD set of the same nameOriginally due last December, the Pink Floyd live DVD "Pulse" will now hit stores June 27 via Columbia. The project was originally released on home video in 1995 in conjunction with a double-disc CD set of the same name. The film chronicles the band's 1994 tour in support of the album "The Division Bell," which turned out to be its last.
The material here was taped during a 14-night run at London's Earl's Court and is highlighted by the first complete performance of the 1973 album "Dark Side of the Moon," which can be found on the second disc. The first disc features a blend of older hits ("Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2," "Learning To Fly") and material from "The Division Bell" ("Keep Talking," "Take It Back").
Among the bonus features are the back-screen stage projections used during the 1994 and 1987 tours, plus music videos for a host of "Division Bell" tracks, the off-stage documentary "Goodbye To Life As We Know It" and Floyd's performance of "Wish You Were Here" with Billy Corgan at its 1996 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Meanwhile, Pink Floyd guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour will tape a live DVD of his own during his May 29-30 stand at London's Royal Albert Hall. The project is expected to be out before the end of the year.
In addition, Gilmour's March 7 tour kickoff show at London's Mermaid Theatre will be screened tonight (May 16) in 100 U.S. movie theaters. For participating locations, visit BigScreenConcerts.com.
