Sound Destruction: HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!

HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!

Pink Floyd reunite for Live 8! They've set aside their differences in the hope of attracting attention to the politics behind the festival: Gilmour said:

“Like most people, I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the Third World. It’s crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations. Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if reforming for this concert will help focus attention, then it’s got to be worthwhile.”
pigs must be flying today!

What a fantastic concert it should be!
It's being broadcast live here, what about there, are there any concerts planned like the last time?
