Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour Reunite On Stage In London

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour reunited on stage at London’s O2 Arena yesterday (May 12th), the first time that all remaining members of the band have performed together in six years. In a decision which left fans ecstatic at the prospect of a future tour together, Gilmour joined Water’s during his show in London, where the pair performed a triumphant rendition of ‘Comfortably Numb’ together. The band have not graced the same stage since performing at the Live 8 concert in 2005.

Heralding back to a similar performance made during the band’s 1980/91 tour, Dave Gilmour played his epic solo on top of the wall, a costly piece of stage equipment built specially for Waters’ tour. Throughout the show a series of dramatic images were projected onto the wall, as you can see in the fan footage below.

Although fans are already fervently discussing the prospect of a joint tour from the Floyd members, Gilmour was keen to assert that the collaboration would not be a regular occurrence. Speaking through a fan blog before the show, the following statement was made: “I should also remind you that tonight is most definitely a one-off. David is not repeating his special guest performance at a later occasion, I’m sorry to disappoint those of you with fingers crossed and tickets for later shows."

Waters has been open about his desire for a Pink Floyd reunion tour in recent years, but Gilmour is always said to have been against the idea. When asked recently about the prospect of a tour by Rolling Stone, drummer Nick Mason claimed that he “lives in hope” that it will come together.

He said: "There are absolutely no plans. But Live 8 was fantastic. We did something for other people, but we also proved that we could all work together again. I'm really pleased that my children saw that. I would have thought that could be regenerated at some time. So I live in hope – but that's no reason to put it out on Twitter that 'Nick Says Band to Re-form!'"
