It provides a fascinating journey through time with the band, exhaustively listing every single gig they ever played, culminating in the Division Bell tour at Earls Court in 1994 (I was there!). It also lists all the gigs the individual members played, up to 1996 in Dave Gilmour's case.
Probably only for the real diehard Floyd anoraks, but as a companion to the many other books on the history of this ever popular band, it makes fascinating reading.

The story of the band is told as a backdrop to over thirty years of amazing live shows in this book. Many great color and black and white photos are crammed into these pages as a visual treat for the fan of The Floyd as well. Find out just whom dared to share the billing with Pink Floyd, discover just how it all grew from tiny clubs in London to massive enormodomes of the world and learn in which direction the inflatable pig escaped from it's moorings and was spotted by a commercial jetliner heading into Heathrow International.
Pink Floyd is a big rock band, and they grow even bigger when they climb on stage. If you are a fan of this wonderful band and enjoy a behind the scene view if some of the most amazing rock concerts ever performed, this is the perfect book for you.
This volume is an excellent account of some of the most fantastic live rock music you will ever read about.
Four & 1/2 stars!
"Pink Floyd: In the Flesh" is an indispensable guide to all the fine details of each Floyd show, from the entire spectrum of their performing career. Besides being fascinating reading, I've found the book invaluable in helping me make sense of the vast number of RoIO albums out there. It's directly helped me make some worthwhile purchases of RoIO albums. For a Floyd concert collector, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
