“We’d like to wish you all the best, and hope that you and your families are staying safe and well in these difficult times,” shared Pink Floyd on social media. “We will continue to post as normal to hopefully give you some interesting and diverting images, music and video to help us all get through this.”

Formed in London in 1965, Pink Floyd went on to sell more than 250 million albums worldwide, with 1973’s “The Dark Side Of The Moon” among the best-selling records of all time at 45 million copies, while 1979’s “The Wall” sold more than 30 million sets.

Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall Of Fame in 2005, Pink Floyd released their final album, “The Endless River”, in 2014.

Youtube says, “These last few weeks at home have given us all a better appreciation for basic human interactions, especially when it comes to sharing and experiencing live music. One thing we’ve realized is we don’t have to stop enjoying those moments just because we’re staying safe at home.  In the spirit of connectedness and continuing to celebrate live music, even when our favorite artists are also staying safe at home, for the first time, bands like Pink Floyd, Radiohead, MetallicaThe National and more have been and are set to release unseen and/or archived concert footage LIVE on their Official YouTube channels on a weekly basis for fans around the world to enjoy. Additionally and importantly, many of the bands are using these live footage moments to raise funds and awareness for COVID-related causes that are near and dear to them.
