Sorry for a strange follow up some 16 years later, but did Guy Pratt say which date the memorial service was held on? Gilmour and Nick Mason played "Remember a Day" as Pink Floyd live at Wright's memorial service, which took place at the Notting Hill Theatre, and this was the first Pink Floyd performance of the song in 40 years (1968-2008). Also, this would be an example of a two-men Pink Floyd taking the live stage for the first time, also an example of a live Pink Floyd performance after the Madcap's Last Laugh in 2007. It is possible to argue that Waters-Gilmour-Mason performance of "Outside the Wall" (12 May 2011) was (technically) the last Pink Floyd stage performance to date following this, but it is a real shame that we actually don't have the date for "Remember a Day" in 2008.
