Pink Floyd's Venice Concert was the second-to-last performance by the English band on their second European tour in 1989, the famous A Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. It has come down as one of the most remarkable, and controversial, rock concerts ever held in Italy. This was a free concert held on a floating stage on the occasion of Venice's Festival of the Redeemer on July 15th, 1989. Roughly 200,000 spectators gathered on the banks of the Grand Canal by St. Mark's, or watched the show from boats, and the event broadcast by Rai television reached an estimated 100 million viewers.
