Pink Floyd and their reunion at Live 8 in 2005 was the band’s first performance with Roger Waters, who celebrates his birthday today (September 6), in 24 years.

While held to the tight 20-minute set time that every performer had during the benefit concert, Pink Floyd, without question, owned the event with their setlist of “Breath,” “Money,” “Wish You Were Here” and “Comfortably Numb.”

While Waters and David Gilmour did butt heads regarding the setlist and took some convincing to agree to the reunion set, they put aside their disagreements for the sake of Live 8’s cause to spreading awareness to issues related to the AIDS, poverty and debt in third world countries.

Images and video from the legendary reunion can be viewed below.
