ALTHOUGH it is almost certain legendary rock band Pink Floyd will never tour again, fans will have a chance to see them in action on cinema screens for one night only in October.

After founder member Roger Waters quit the band, Floyd eventually regrouped under the leadership of guitarist, singer and Hove resident David Gilmour who, together with drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright, released new material and embarked on a world tour.

Now it has been confirmed that the film of that tour, Delicate Sound of Thunder, is returning to cinemas around the world for a one-night-only event on October 15.

It was in 1987 that Floyd made a triumphant resurgence. The legendary British band, formed in 1967, had suffered the loss of two co-founders: keyboardist/vocalist Richard Wright, who left after sessions for The Wall in 1979, and Waters, who had left to go solo in 1985, soon after the 1983 album The Final Cut.

But Gilmour and Mason, together with the returning Wright, created the multi-platinum A Momentary Lapse Of Reason album, which proved to be a global chart smash.

Released in September 1987, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason proved a huge success with fans flocking to attend the live tour dates, which started within days of the album’s release. The tour played to more than 4.25 million fans over more than two years.

Filmed at Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum in August 1988 and directed by Wayne Isham, the Grammy Award-nominated Delicate Sound Of Thunder is now coming to cinemas for the first time.

The 2020 version is sourced directly from over 100 cans of original 35mm negatives, which have been painstakingly restored.

The sound has also been completely remixed from the original multi-track tapes by longtime Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson and Gilmour.

The setlist carefully balances the then-new material and Pink Floyd classics, including four songs from The Dark Side of the Moon (Time, On the Run, The Great Gig in the Sky and Us and Them), the anthemic title track of Wish You Were Here, The Wall’s Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell. From A Momentary Lapse of Reason came the atmospheric instrumental Signs of Life, the powerful Learning to Fly, and On the Turning Away. Tickets will be on sale from August 27 on the band’s official website.
