VIDEO: Behind the scenes of Pink Floyd’s 2011 reunion

Last spring, Pink Floyd members David Gilmour and Nick Mason had a “mini-reunion” of sorts when they joined Roger Waters in London for his show the O2 Arena.

As part of Waters’ tour of the 1979 Floyd classic, “The Wall,” Gilmour played on “Comfortably Numb” while he and Mason appeared with their former bassist during the show’s closing number, “Outside The Wall.” With Mason on tambourine, it was only the second time that the three surviving members had played together in the last 30 years.

Now, a year later, the band has issued some behind the scenes video of the London event. The footage includes a pre-show rehearsal with Gilmour playing atop The Wall, as well as live clips from the concert itself.
