Pink Floyd fans can get a double helping of the band’s magic at the O2 through an exhibition launched to coincide with Roger Water’s current tour dates.

As the band’s bassist and co-vocalist performs their classic The Wall album at the North Greenwich venue until next Wednesday, there is also a chance to gain a greater insight through a new photography exhibition.

Shine On: Pink Floyd in Focus at the O2’s British Music Experience museum features images from the 1960s to the band’s unexpected Live 8 reunion in 2005, including rare images of reclusive founder Syd Barrett by photographer Mick Rock, artwork from Storm Thorgerson and the Hipgnosis studio, as well as candid images by photographer Jill Furmanovsky.

The latter photos are drawn from a largely unseen archive which shows the band at work on their Wish You Were Here album at Abbey Road and then embarking on their Dark Side of the Moon tour in the mid-70’s.

The exhibition, which was launched yesterday, is organised with Rockarchive.

Paul Lilley, curator of the British Music Experience, said: “Pink Floyd are one of the greatest bands of all time, true pioneers.

“The collection from Rockarchive is quite stunning.”

The exhibition runs until July 11 and can be viewed as part of standard museum entry for £10.

Ticketholders to the Roger Waters concerts can view the exhibition for free and the whole museum for £5.
