Pink Floyd 50th anniversary logo accused of going ‘woke’ over rainbow

Pink Floyd were accused by a whole cohort of ‘fans’ for including a rainbow in the new logo to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ‘Dark Side of the Moon.’ 

The English rock band shared a new spin to their iconic album cover to mark half a century since its release. The cover, which had included a rainbow being refracted through a prism, was misinterpreted as Pink Floyd going ‘woke.’ 

Some commenters said that they swore off the band from that moment onwards, with others saying that it is making them losing stupid. 

However, other, more attuned fans of the band went on to point out that the rainbow had been part of the logo since the launch back in 1973. 

Dark Side of the Moon was the eighth studio album to be released by the rock band and became one of the most acclaimed albums of all time. It sold 45 million copies worldwide, making it the fourth best selling album in history.

The band’s TikTok has already garnered 238.4K followers in the few days they’ve been active on the famous platform, with some of their videos already racking millions of views. 

Having formed in London in 1962, the band has been active for over six decades and remain one of the most popular and enduring bands of the rock era. And who knows – maybe Shaun’s little welcome could see him working alongside more than just Martin Garrix.

With his restaurants having won up to 7 Michelin Stars, renowned Italian chef, television personality and writer Bruno Barbieri has made his way to Malta to dine in some of the island’s best food spots.

The chef will be spending an entire week on the island and will be filming his popular Italian TV show “4 Hotel”.

Barbieri became a household name in Italy as a judge on the popular cooking show “MasterChef Italia” and later as host of the food and travel show “4 Hotel”.

He is no stranger to Malta, having visited on several occasions in the past. This includes a trip to aid in the opening and development of Upperfood, a premium Italian food shop, where CEO Fabrizio Crimi was the first one to bring him to Malta for the creation of this concept store.

He is a recognisable face to the public of the Belpaese, thanks to the success he obtained as a judge of the popular cooking program “MasterChef Italia”. 

Filming of “4 Hotel” in Malta, which was made possible thanks to the support of VisitMalta, will end on Friday 27th January, closing off with an event bringing together starred chefs from both Malta and Italy. 

Barbieri will meet fans at an exclusive end of shooting celebration party, organised by Life Events, the leading Event company in Malta, led by Simone Neri. 

Star chef Marvin Gauci is expected to participate in the event, which makes this a must attend for food and entertaining enthusiasts.
