In 1987, Pink Floyd had 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 bass player and lyricist Roger Waters, who had left to go solo in 1985, soon after the 1983 album 'The Final Cut'. The gauntlet was thus laid down for guitarist/singer David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason, who proceeded to create the multi-platinum 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' album, a global chart smash, which also saw the return of Richard Wright to the fold. Originally released in September 1987, 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' was quickly embraced by fans worldwide, who flocked 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, and, as a celebration of the enduring talent and global appeal of David, Nick and Richard was unsurpassed at the time. This 2-CD set features 23 tracks performed by the band during that tour at Long Island's Nassau Coliseum in August 1988. The setlist carefully balances the then-new material from 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' and Pink Floyd classics, including songs from 'The Dark Side of the Moon', 'Wish You Were Here' and 'The Wall'.
