Got My Hands on Pink Floyd Later Years Box set! – See photos

Christmas has arrived early as I have managed to get my hands on the Pink Floyd Later Years 1987-2019 magnificent box set of goodies! Last night, I did the all important opening of the box and just being in awe and amazement at how much effort and work has gone into this magnificent tome of goodness.

Here are some photos below of the unboxing ceremony. I am going to start listening to the CDs and watching the video content later whilst immersing myself in the tour programmes, memorabilia, looking through fantastic lyrics and photo book and more. It really does have the wow factor.

The boxset is released this coming Friday 13th December and you can pre-order now from Amazon UK or Amazon.com shipped 13th December.

Funds raised from the concert will go towards building The Royal Marsden’s brand new, state of the art treatment and research facility, the Oak Cancer Centre.

Eric Clapton said, “This is a great cause and I’m honoured to be part of the efforts to raise money for The Royal Marsden. I also couldn’t say no to the opportunity to work with the other artists and bandmates in the line-up. I am sure it’ll be a fantastic evening providing much needed support for this pioneering hospital.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday 6th December from: Bookingsdirect.com / Ticketmaster.com / Eventim.co.uk / AXS.com / Theo2.co.uk

More artists will be announced at a later date with each of them performing a few songs backed up by a formidable house band.

I don’t want to start any rumours, but it would be rather a good thing if David Gilmour turned up and did a couple of numbers too! It is quite close to his birthday on 6th March but he could give us all a treat instead! 😉
