The iconic British rock band announced in a Facebook post that every Friday, it will share archive concert footage on its YouTube channel during the COVID19 pandemic.

The first concert, a 90-minute TV version of Pulse, was streamed on Friday noon.

Pink Floyd said it hopes their concert series on YouTube would help people as they self-isolate amid the COVID19 pandemic.

“We’d like to wish you all the best and hope that you and your families are staying safe and well in these difficult times,” the Facebook statement, said.

Pink Floyd was an English rock band, formed in London in 1965.

Pundits of rock-n-roll say they were the best in popular music history.

Pink Floyd was founded by Syd Barrett (guitar, lead vocals), Nick Mason (drums), Roger Waters (bass guitar, vocals), and Richard Wright (keyboards, vocals).

Under Barrett’s leadership, they released two charting singles and a successful debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967).

The band was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

By 2013, they had sold more than 250 million records worldwide.

The last Pink Floyd studio album, The Endless River (2014), was based on unreleased material from the Division Bell recording sessions.

The surviving members of Pink Floyd are Nick Mason, Roger Waters and David Gilmour.
