Pink Floyd man loses inflatable pig

Roger Waters' prop disappears during Coachella performance

Pink Floyd man loses inflatable pig
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.
