** A small moment: About two minutes into "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4i8tzFbTAk Comfortably Numb]]" - which the band knew would be the last song they ever played together in front of an audience - just before Gilmour takes his solo, Mason stops playing for a second to rip off his headphones. If it's the last time they do this, he's going to do it without the tech.

** In 2003, Gilmour also donated a $3.6 million dollar mansion in Maida Vale that he bought, but never used, to the ninth Earl Spencer to be used as a homeless shelter.

to:

** **The reunion itself for that matter; the various members of the band had not been on great terms for decades, with Waters even taking Mason & Gilmour to court over use of the band's name in the 80's, and it was said that pigs would fly before they'd play together again. They put some pretty large differences aside to do so.

* After the publicity of the Live 8 reunion boosted sales of Pink Floyd's ''Echoes'' GreatestHitsAlbum, David Gilmour encouraged himself and the other members of the band to donate their earnings to the Make Poverty History cause, and for other acts on the bill to do the same, feeling that it was money which "should be used to save lives".

--> '''Roger Waters''': ''"Thirty years ago, when Dave and Nick and I first did this...uh, with Rick...I was a rather ''grumpy person'' and disaffected with rock and roll audiences...and put young David to the test...'''BUT ALL THAT'S CHANGED!''' I could not be happier to be with you, and these three guys (points to Gilmour and Mason), and all thirteen of us here, (points to his backing musicians), and you tonight, thank you very much indeed!"''
