Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 1974 UK Tour Program

Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here

Here's a rare, comic style, Program from the Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 1974 UK Tour. Pink Floyd’s British Winter Tour '74, was a short concert tour by Pink Floyd during the winter of 1974 in the United Kingdom. The tour commenced on November 4, 1974 and concluded on December 14, 1974.

This Program opens with a breakdown of the crew & contributors to the comic, these include:

Hipgnosis & Nick Mason
Gerald Scarfe
Paul Stubbs
Joe Petagno
Colin Elgie
Richard Evans
Dave Gale

Then follow the comic strips themselves :-

'Rog Of The Rovers'
'Captain Mason R.N.'
'Rich Right'
& 'The Exploits Of Dave Derring'

There is also a quiz page, a 'life lines' biog page & a lyric page, all topped off with an amazing Gerald Scarfe centrefold.

The lyric page is especially interesting as the lyrics listed are for:

Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Released the following year on 'Wish You Were Here'
Raving & Drooling - Finally radically altered & released on 'Animals' as 'Sheep'
Gotta Be Crazy - Finally radically altered & also released on 'Animals' as 'Dogs'
