This is just to wish you all a brilliant Christmas and fantastic new year.
Some of you will recall we recently had an appeal for funds to sort out a number of problems with the site. We are now delighted to announce that the funds were spent wisely and that all those nasty little bugs have been squashed.
The site should now load a lightning speed and is now a SECURE site.
So, on with the celebrations and don’t forget to keep coming back for the latest Floyd news you can get. Also, please continue to visit our sponsors often to help keep us going!
Best wishes, Col, Sean, Liam & the rest of the AFG Team.
Wonderful news Pink Floyd fans, a digital version of ‘The Later Years 1987-2019’ has been made available to stream and purchase! The digital version includes the 2019 Remixes of both A Momentary Lapse of Reason and Delicate Sound of Thunder and the 1987-1994 bonus tracks. It looks like Knebworth 1990 is still exclusive to the box set for now.
There hadn’t been any word on individual releases for A Momentary Lapse of Reason and Delicate Sound of Thunder, so this comes as great news to those who only had access to the Highlights so far.
Nick Mason is one of the many stars taking part in a charity benefit concert in March of 2020 in London.
We are thrilled to announce a star-studded benefit concert to be held at London’s iconic O2 Arena on Tuesday 3 March 2020 with a stellar line up of superstars performing their biggest hits. Funds raised from the concert will go towards building The Royal Marsden’s brand new, state of the art treatment and research facility, the Oak Cancer Centre.
Performing on 3 March at the ‘Music for the Marsden’ concert will be a formidable line-up including:
Sir Tom Jones
Gary Brooker of Procol Harum
Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall
John Illsley from Dire Straits
Yusuf / Cat Stevens
More artists will be announced at a later date with each of them performing a few songs backed up by a formidable house band.

The new version of ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder’ is taken from the forthcoming box set, ‘The Later Years’.
