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 StormStudios.
During Pink Floyd's tour behind A Momentary Sound Lapse Of Reason, David Gilmour justified the massive size of the band and stage for the trek: ["We like to do that stuff. Y'know, we can do a smaller-type show any time we want. I can go and do 'em as a solo artist. This is our forum for doing this type of thing, and it's one of those sorts of things I like to do — not the only sort of thing. When you start doing it, you either make it a moderate show, or you have to go all out."] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . go all out)
