Features the latest OFFICIAL news, pictures, reviews, interviews, lyrics, forum, links, and so much more.Now in its 18th big year, Pink Floyd A Fleeting Glimpse continues to attract new audiences. The site is widely acknowledged as a great source for Floyd news and has picked up a massive cult following over the years. (We passed the 50 Million visitor mark way back in Nov 2012!) A Fleeting Glimpse (Or AFG as its become known) is used by a cross section of the Floyd/Waters online community, including new fans & crusty old fossils, who spend all their life researching Pink Floyd.

Keep The Flag Flying Regular visitors to this site will recall that on many of Roger Waters recent tours, a makeshift AFG Banner has been flown by our good friend Joaquim Arnês Filho. The banner has been seen around the world many times, however Joaquim decided that it needed replacing with an official AFG one and set to work about organising it. Now thanks to Greg Hampton, Joaquim has just had his banner delivered to him in Brazil. Pictured below is Joaquim (Grey hair to the right) and his family & friends celebrating the arrival of their new banner.

David Gilmour - New Album Named & USA Tour for 2016! David Gilmour and his wife Polly Samson appeared at this years Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas, at Carlow, (South East Ireland) on Saturday (6 June). It was their debut discussion about their songwriting partnership and their first public appearance together. Naturally, discussion mainly centered around the writing process, especially about the Division Bell and On an Island, but probably of most interest was when the discussion turned to David's upcoming new album. Polly said that the theme was 'Carpe Diem' (Seize the day) and David said (after being pressed) that the title of his new album is 'Rattle That Lock'. UPDATE: There's been a lot of confusion as to what actually was played and or performed at this event. We have now had the good fortune to be able to listen to a recording of the whole thing (Not available to the public - sorry) and here's what actually happened. David kicked off by playing a recording of 'High Hopes' and then did a brief acoustic version live of 'Smile'. He then played a recording of a song from 'Rattle That Lock' called 'Whatever It Takes'. A bit later he played a recording of 'Louder Than Words', and then did an acoustic version of 'The Blue'. This was followed by David playing a recording of 'In Any Tongue' from the new album, and last a lovely jazz number called 'The Girl In The Yellow Dress' with Jools Holland on the keys (a recording - also from the new album).With thanks to our AFG Ireland Correspondent David Mcgart.(pictured with David & Polly) and many others. BTW - David confirmed to one of those in attendance that he will be touring the USA in 2016!!! If you want to listen to a couple of short clips that David played, then get your bums over to our good friend The Doctor and listen to his Latest Podcast (Around the 1h 29m mark)

There's A Storm Coming
 
Roger Waters - The Wall To Be Released! The long awaited film, that had it's world premiere in Toronto last year, is set to be released later this year. The movie is an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album and delivers an anti-war message. Part road movie, it follows Roger as he travels through France and Italy, visiting war memorials that have personal resonance. Written and directed by Waters and Sean Evans, the film, accompanied by an “in conversation” with Roger, will have a global event cinema release on September 29 at 7:30 PM in each time zone. Tickets will go on sale in the US summer. The concert portion of the film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-13 “The Wall Live” tour. The shows were seen by more than 1.5M in North America, 1M across Latin and Central America and 1M in Europe. It was the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist ever. More details will be coming closer to the event.
