Pink Floyd is marking the 50th anniversary of its immortal Dark Side of the Moon studio album with a gigantic anniversary edition box set, including the remastered album in multiple formats and a legendary 1974 live concert.

The Dark Side of the Moon - Live at Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974 will be available on CD, vinyl and Blu-ray.

But the set also includes a 160-page hardcover book, including rare black and white photos from Pink Floyd's tours from 1972 - 1975 and replicas of the band's 7" singles for "Money" / "Any Colour You Like" and "Us and Them" / "Time."

Additional swag includes posters, stickers and a replica 1973 EMI pamphlet and invitation to preview the album at the London Planetarium.

Dark Side of the Moon was originally released on March 1, 1973. It has since sold more than 50 million copies worldwide and become considered one of the most influential albums of all time.

The album famously remained on the Billboard Top 200 for a record 724 weeks, from its 1973 release until April 30, 1988. The album has logged nearly 1,000 weeks in the Top 200.
