A new technique to convert DVDs into smartphone apps has been created, and first on the development company’s list is “David Gilmour In Concert,” featuring Gilmour’s concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2001.
Thursday night (November 8), Roger Waters will take the stage at New York’s Beacon Theater for the annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit. Part of the New York Comedy Festival (not a festival one would immediately associate Waters with), the event usually features comedians doing standup, although it’s been customary for Bruce Springsteen to perform at the show as well, telling a few jokes and doing a couple of solo acoustic songs.
Tonight, an all-star lineup of music legends will take the stage at New Jersey’s Izod Center for the “Love For Levon” concert. The concert, paying tribute to the late drummer/singer Levon Helm from The Band will feature Roger Waters, Joe Walsh and Gregg Allman, among others. The event website also mentions that other “legendary surprise guests” will perform. But who might those guests be?
Waters, who just wrapped up a huge three year tour where he performed Pink Floyd’s The Wall every night, will be playing in relatively stripped down surroundings. Coincidentally, the one time when Waters performed with Helm was at Waters’ one-off performance of The Wall in Germany on July 21, 1990.

The Olympics Closing Ceremony rumor mill has run the gamut, with talk of many iconic British acts taking the stage for what’s being touted as a celebration of British music in the last 50 years. Many names have come up, but never has Pink Floyd’s – until now.
