Marked the first performance by the "full" lineup of Pink Floyd (Roger Waters, David Gilmour (I)', 'Nick Mason', and 'Richard Wright (II)' , but still minus Syd Barrett, of course) since their acrimonious break up in 1985, the breakup itself was four years after their last public performance, in 1981.
