I doubt that the show will look as legendary on DVD in 2012, as it was in real life in 1980-81. And Waters's Wall at Berlin was more legendary, for being broadcasted around the world.
The name Pink Floyd is somehow attached to Waters's current The Wall. ("Founder member of Pink Floyd", for example.) So, the package will mention both Pink Floyd and The Wall.danielcaux wrote:Waters' new show may be loaded to the nth degree with multimedia eyecandy, but it doesn't have half the historical weight of these first shows, and most importantly to Pink Floyd and the record company: it's not Pink Floyd. A Pink Floyd release always sells more.
And would Pink Floyd like to release an old show which stands in the shadow of the version by a solo member?
I'm just being the devil's advocate. Of course I would also like to see the original show. But I doubt that EMI finds the taste of die-hard fans interesting enough.
