The 1990 Knebworth concert featured an A-list lineup that included Pink Floyd, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Genesis and Elton John Dire Straits and Paul McCartney. Roger Waters had left Floyd, but the remaining members felt their band should get the closing headline slot, a contention that boiled over into heated exchanges between the managements of each group on the very day of the concert. When Pink Floyd prevailed, McCartney and his band refused to end their set at the appointed time, causing tempers to rise again between the camps because heavy weather was rolling in. Despite the discord, or perhaps because of it, both groups did stellar sets. Pink Floyd's set from that night gets released on CD, double vinyl and digital form for the first time on April 30th. Order it now here.
