Pink Floyd and The Incredible String Band.
This time we conclude “Alex the Gnome”’s notes in the insert which came with the CD “An Italian Tale”:”
“This leg of the tour should also be remembered for of the notorious concert in Venice on July 15, 1989, when the stage was placed on a barge in the middle of the lagoon, that will be remembered more for the controversy (and the poor organization) than the music played. The band once again returned to Italy on [sic] September 1994, during the last world tour, for 6 concerts to promote the album “The Division Bell” and for the novelty of performing the entire rendition of the album “The Dark Side of the Moon” in sequence. This was the last gift from a band beloved by Italian fans for many years, who were mortified by the total absence of live performances by the Floyd when the band were performing, delighting audiences in many other European countries, the imagination and the many artistic expressions that made them great.
“All in all, the Floyd are largely in debt to their Italian fans, who were not guilty for relying on such poor local promoters and who were the first victims of the provincialism of certain cultural and musical choices, who had been keeping away from the country a large number of foreign artists at their artistic peaks. This Brescia show is released for the first time on CD and stands as a sort of compensation to those who wanted to be there but could not, who were there and did not understand and who were there but have not forgotten.
