Tangerine Dream are to play a one-off show in London during the summer.
The veteran German synth band will bring their Electric Manderine show to the Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Sunday, June 24.
Says founder Edgar Froese: “Playing London is like being back home. Our fans make it possible for us to realise every musician’s dream: making a living out of what you love and do best, playing and composing music. As a thank you we would like to share Tangerine Dream’s 45th anniversary (1967 – 2012) with our loyal British fan base. It will be a great show with lots of songs and sounds that our fans grew up with”.
Pink Floydare rumoured to be reuniting this summer for the London 2012 Olympics. (Apparently to play during the closing ceremony, not to compete in the beach volleyball event.)
Today’s London Evening Standard newspaper quotes an unnamed Floyd ‘insider’ as saying:
“It’s long been made clear it would take something very special to get Pink Floyd back together again and it doesn’t get any bigger than the Olympics.
“They have been a major part of the nation’s culture over the past 40 years and it will be very fitting that they’re involved when London is on show to the world. It’s hoped everything can be confirmed in the coming weeks.”

There was a live Pink Floyd reunion in London last night (May 12).
David Gilmour and Nick Mason joined Roger Waters onstage at the O2 Arena, during his performance of The Wall. Gilmour played Comfortably Numb with Waters, while both he and Mason did Outside The Wall.
But don’t hold your breath for this to signal a full-blown Floyd reformation. In a statement on his own website, Gilmour subsequently said: “I should also remind you that tonight is most definitely a one-off; David is not repeating his special guest performance at a later occasion, I’m sorry to disappoint those of you with fingers crossed and tickets for later shows”.
