The 1971 Meddle tour was a short concert tour by British band Pink Floyd. Commenced on October 1971 and ended on November of that year. It was intended to promote their new album Meddle in the United States, although some of the album material had been played months before the album release, a common practice by the band. The set list was varied, playing material from many of their previous albums, some of them never played again by the band.
