What Is Available to Watch?

Pulse – a live show with lots of energy and a favourite amongst fans. It showcased The Division Bell album, and is a greatest hits show with a great looking stage

Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii – this 1972 classic is set in an amphitheatre in Pompeii and features early material from the band. It is a documentary interspersed with live performances. There is a famous scene with Nick Mason and a certain pie! Take it easy, Nick!

David Gilmour Live in Pompeii – David took his 2016 Rattle That Lock tour here decades after Pink Floyd performed their famous concert with no fans present.

Pink Floyd 1970 KQED TV Broadcast – a favourite amongst collectors of Pink Floyd bootleg recordings, this hour long show filmed for broadcast at Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, is a treat for the ears

Coronavirus Lockdown Response

It is nice to see what people are doing in response to the Coronavirus pandemic in terms of helping people get through it. The social isolation people are going through to reduce the spread of the virus will be making people stair crazy so it is great Pink Floyd is making these videos available for people to watch. Even if you already have all these DVD’s, it is a nice opportunity to start watch parties on Facebook and to stir up discussion about the videos and recordings on the Pink Floyd Forum.

Talking about discussion, David Gilmour and Polly Samson have of course been airing at 8:30pm GMT on their Facebook live streaming taking questions from fans, reading from Polly’s new book, and playing some new music and covers. All good fun. Romany Gilmour has also been treating us to her harp playing skills even though she is only on lesson 6.

How Do I Watch Pink Floyd Free DVD Streams?

You can watch on Pink Floyd’s official YouTube channel. The first video Pulse premiers today at 5pm GMT. I will also be posting the videos on this page up above.

Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and writer Polly Samson will appear in a live video stream tomorrow to publicise the new book A Theatre of Dreamers. It will also feature new material from David Gilmour performed live.

Polly Samson, who is married to David Gilmour, wrote lyrics for Pink Floyd and David Gilmour solo work and features on albums Division Bell, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and On an Island. The Endless River, Pink Floyd’s last studio album, had Polly’s lyrics on Louder than Words.

Book Launch Postponed

Originally, the book launch was to be accompanied by three live events at Manchester, Birmingham and London, UK. These events have been postponed to later in the year. Each of these special events will feature Polly Samson in conversation with journalist Rosie Boycott, readings, film and live music, including a new song Yes, I Have Ghosts written by David Gilmour and Polly Samson.

The audience will be transported to the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, and a world dancing on the edge of revolution, where a circle of poets, painters, writers and musicians live tangled lives. It’s a story of utopian dreams and innocence lost, of the troubled King and Queen of Bohemia, Charmian Clift and George Johnson, of a young poet named Leonard Cohen, and his Marianne; and of Erica Hart, an 18-year-old in search of answers.

Online Broadcasts

Many artists have turned to Facebook recently due to the Coronavirus shutting down tours and appearances. The Gilmour’s will be broadcasting live, probably from their home in Brighton on England’s sunny south coast, at 8pm BST on Facebook.

It said on David’s Facebook feed…

Sadly, our launch events for Polly Samson’s new book A Theatre For Dreamers – out tomorrow – had to be postponed, so we’re having a go at doing something live from home with the family on Facebook on release day. Join us at 8pm BST tomorrow (Thru 2nd April) here on Facebook.

How to Watch

It will be a live streaming event so should appear on David and Polly’s Facebook pages so be sure to check the links out below at 8.30pm BST. Note that we are in “British Summer Time” in the UK so that is GMT+1 hour. If you are fumbling around for the live broadcast and can’t see it, it could be an hour later than you expect.

Some of you might not have Facebook and do not with to join up in order to watch this video. I imagine it will appear on Youtube at some point so you can still potentially watch and listen to David Gilmour’s new song.

If you would like to order a copy of Polly’s new book, set in the Greek Island of Hydra where Leonard Cohen made many memories, then get yours from Amazon.co.uk
