Pink Floyd to stream concert footage every Friday

Legendary British rock band Pink Floyd has announced that they will be streaming concert footage on their YouTube channel every Friday, joining the ranks of many other performing artists.

The band will share archived footage on the platform weekly from now on as the world battles the coronavirus, according to a post on their Facebook account this Friday.

The first concert footage of the 90 minute TV version of PULSE was on air as part of the four week YouTube Film Festival at 12:00 p.m. (EST) on Friday.

The DVD version of David Gilmour Live at Pompeii will also stream on their Facebook page in the coming weeks.

The band said their goal is to provide entertainment to the world as people stay at home in self-isolation.

The legendary rock group first came to prominence in the 1960s, and have since been one of the most iconic bands in the genre.

Pink Floyd released their last official record, The Division Bell, in 1994, before releasing another record that featured music written for The Division Bell in 2014.

The band's lineup currently consists of Roger Waters, Nick Mason, and David Gilmour. Richard Wright, a founder member of the band, died in 2008.

Pink Floyd isn’t the only group to upload concerts and live footage over the last few weeks. The Grateful Dead, as well, announced the Shakedown Stream which was a series of old concert footage.

Other stars who have posted similar content include Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, and Ariana Grande, among many others.

The most recently acclaimed performance, however, was from Disney, the Disney Family Singalong that aired on ABC.
