Pink Floyd concert chronology

The 1971 Meddle tour was a short concert tour by the British band Pink Floyd. It began in October 1971 and ended in November of the same year. It was intended to promote their new album Meddle in the United States and Canada, however some of the albums material had already been played during the bands Atom Heart Mother World Tour. The practice of playing songs before their official release would become a tradition for the group following the Meddle tour. The set list played during the tour was varied, with the band playing material from their previous albums A Saucerful of Secrets, More, and Atom Heart Mother, plus the newly released Meddle. The tour would also feature the final time "Embryo", "Fat Old Sun" and "Cymbaline" would be played by the band live.
