Roger Waters' prop disappears during Coachella performance


Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters lost his inflatable pig during his performance at Coachella on Sunday (April 27).

Organisers are offering a $10,000 reward and four festival tickets for life in exchange for Waters' signature pig, which was seen floating away during his 'Dark Side Of The Moon' set at the three-day festival, reports Reuters.

The giant flying pig, part of Pink Floyd's stage show since their 1977 album 'Animals' featuring the song 'Pigs On The Wing', broke free from its tethers above the Coachella crowd and drifted off.

Waters previously lost his flying pig in 1977, when it floated away on the second day of a photoshoot at the Battersea Power Station in London and was later recovered and used for an album cover.

Anyone with information on the lost pig should email lostpig@coachella.com.

You gotta wonder about a band that had a thing for pigs.

Now an inflatable cock, that's a different story, ref. the Stones' Tour of the Americas 1975. Those boys knew what rock and roll was all about.

Reminds me of the Simpsons when Peter Frampton's pig cannon hit Homer at Lollapalooza (or whatever take-off name they used). Wasn't it also the episode with SY?

He lost the pig when I went to go see him a year and a half ago too. You'd figure they'd have better control of it by now.

Man, too late for my "they'll totally find it... when pigs fly!" joke. So you get it in this self-referential post instead.
