Dave Gilmour to join Roger Waters for new Pink Floyd performance

Ex-bandmates to play onstage together for the first time since 2005

Dave Gilmour to join Roger Waters for new Pink Floyd performance
Rogers Waters has revealed that he is planning to perform a Pink Floyd song with ex-bandmate David Gilmour live this year.

The UK leg of his The Wall Live European tour starts on May 11.

The elaborate show - based on Pink Floyd's 1980/81 tour of their 1979 album 'The Wall' - will play for six nights at London O2 Arena, on May 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, and 18. It will then hit the Manchester MEN Arena on May 20 and 21.

"I think it's beginning to look now as if he'll [Gilmour] do one gig," Waters said. "He'll do 'Comfortably Numb' at one gig. It's a big secret when."

In an interview with Sky News Waters added that the tour, which sees a 240ft-wide and 35ft-tall wall being dismantled throughout the show, will most likely be the last time he does anything of a similar scale.

"Constructing something like this indoors - I'll probably never do anything this big again, the technology of projection we've used in this show is breathtaking," he said.

He added: "When we split up David and Nick [Mason, drummer] ended up with the name [of the band] and I ended up with 'The Wall' and everything to do with it and a few quid."

The band briefly reformed in 2005 for Live 8.

Mason recently spoke out about his hopes that one day the whole band will reform for more live shows.
