Pink Floyd - Live 2005 "The Reunion" Full Concert (Enhanced Video)

Roger Waters rejoined with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright in Pink Floyd's first (and last) performance together in over 24 years. Speak to Me/Breathe/Breathe (Reprise), Money (5:04), Wish You Were Here (11:55), and Comfortably Numb (16:22) are performed by Pink Floyd at the London Live 8 concert, Hyde Park on July 2, 2005.

As on the original recordings, Gilmour sang the lead vocals on "Breathe" and "Money", and shared them with Waters on "Comfortably Numb". For "Wish You Were Here", Waters sung half of the verse's lyrics, unlike the original recording. When Waters was not singing, he was often enthusiastically mouthing the lyrics off-microphone. With Richard Wright's death in September 2008, the Reunion Concert was to be the final concert to feature all four bandmates playing together.

Pink Floyd were restricted, like all of the other artists performing at Live 8, to a short, 20-minute set. Even a reunion 24 years in the making was only a mere portion of the larger production. So the band settled on four songs: “Breathe” and “Money” from 1973’s The Dark Side of the Moon, “Wish You Were Here” from the 1975 album of the same name and “Comfortably Numb” from 1979’s The Wall, Pink Floyd’s penultimate recording with Waters. They left aside music from the two Gilmour-led Pink Floyd albums that followed the acrimonious split.
