Trivia

This event marked the first performance by the classic "Dark Side of the Moon" lineup of Pink Floyd (Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright) since their acrimonious breakup in 1985. The breakup itself was four years after their last public performance in 1981. With Wright's death in 2008, it is also the final time the four men performed together.
