      Sony Music today announced the upcoming release of Pink
Floyd Live At Knebworth 1990 
for the first time on CD,
double vinyl and all digital platforms on Friday, April 30, 2021.
The concert was part of the star-studded 1990 Silver Clef Winners performance
at Knebworth House, Hertfordshire, headlined by Pink Floyd. Click
 here to pre-order.

     The monumentous Silver Clef Award Winners Knebworth concert
saw Pink Floyd topping the all-star bill that included Paul
McCartney, Dire Straits, Genesis, Phil Collins, Mark Knopfler, Robert Plant
(with Jimmy Page), Cliff Richard, Eric Clapton, and Tears For Fears. Around
120,000 music fans saw these giants of rock appear on the hallowed stage of
Knebworth, all in aid of the Nordoff Robbins charity, profits from which went
towards setting up the BRIT School. The concert was broadcast globally on MTV.

     David Munns, Chairman of Nordoff Robbins, remembers the event
well: “The Knebworth Concert was a defining moment in the music industry’s
commitment to Nordoff Robbins, the BRIT Trust and the concept of the BRIT
School. What a fantastic day it was, culminating in this brilliant performance
by Pink Floyd. The money raised allowed the BRIT School to come
into being and allowed Nordoff Robbins to significantly expand its service.
Knebworth will go down in history as one of those great moments and the music
industry should be very proud of what it achieved.”

 

      Nick Mason also reminisces about
the gig: “There is something special about Knebworth. We all still have fond
memories of playing there in the 70’s, and this show was no different. As a
North London boy this was almost a home game, but with the added delight of
being the re-assembly of the band after a fairly mega tour that had lasted for
well over a year. It was also an opportunity to get the wonderful
Candy Dulfer to play – I had been a fan of hers for quite a while, and it
was just a shame we didn’t have an opportunity to utilise her for more. We also
had our dear friend Michael Kamen guesting. Michael had contributed so
much to PF over the previous ten years, it’s great to have
something of his playing on the recording.”

 

     Pink Floyd – David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright – were joined
on stage by members of their touring band including Guy Pratt, Jon Carin, Tim
Renwick and Gary Wallis. Backing vocals came from Durga McBroom, Sam Brown and
her mother Vicki, and (original The Great Gig In The Sky vocalist)
Clare Torry. Pink Floyd also welcomed guest musicians including sax player
Candy Dulfer and keyboard player and composer Michael Kamen. David Gilmour and
Andy Jackson have remixed the audio from this iconic concert featuring all
seven tracks performed on the day, and the album features new artwork shot by
Floyd collaborator Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell of Hipgnosis and designed by Peter Curzon
of Storm Studios. The concert, previously unreleased until it appeared on
2019’s Later Years box set, is now available as CD or double Vinyl set for the
first time as a stand-alone album.
