Many classic rock fans have wanted a Pink Floyd reunion for years now. They got their wish on July 2, 2005, at the Live 8 benefit concert in London. It may have been just one night, but it made the band’s long-awaited reunion that much more special.

I’ve written before about why Floyd’s surviving members should just put aside their differences and do one last reunion tour. If they did this Live 8 gig for charity purposes, imagine the cash they’d rake in for charities with a full-blown world tour.

Floyd fans got another tease when Roger Waters toured for The Wall in 2011, and David Gilmour joined his former bandmate on stage for “Comfortably Numb” at the O2 Arena in London.

The long-awaited all-out reunion tour may never happen, but fans at least got a glimpse of how awesome and epic such a show would be with Floyd’s one-off performance at Live 8. Watch the entire set in the video below and hope that this is not the last time the band gets back together.

Set List:

“Breathe”
“Money”
“Wish You Were Here”
“Comfortably Numb”
