Pink Floyd say new album would be ‘fun to play live’, but tour is unlikely

'The Endless River' is released on November 10

Pink Floyd‘s Nick Mason says the band are unlikely to perform new album ‘The Endless River’ live because it wouldn’t lend itself to being played in stadiums.

The drummer also said it would be difficult to perform without the late bandmember Richard Wright, who died in 2008. He did, however, say that the album would suit a slot at London’s long-closed UFO Club, a 1960s haunt of Pink Floyd’s.

Mason told Gigwise: “It would be fun to play live, but it doesn’t actually lend itself to a proper tour. It’s something that you could play in UFO Club in 1967, it certainly isn’t a stadium sort of event, and without Rick it’s probably impossible. It’s impossible to play, because the nature of it is that a lot of it is designed there and then – if one played it again, you wouldn’t want to repeat what was one the record. It’s not something where you learn it and play it.”

Asked if there were any plans to tour the album at all, Mason said: “I don’t think so.”

‘The Endless River’ could become the most pre-ordered album of all time on Amazon, taking the title from current holders One Direction. The album will be released on November 10 and, as previously reported, will be the band’s last ever release.
