Nick Mason: ‘I live in hope that Pink Floyd will play again’

Drummer says it's 'very unlikely' that band will tour, though

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has said he hopes the band will play live together again in the near future.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, Mason said he believed it would be “very unlikely” that the band will ever tour, but that he hoped they would take to the stage again “for the right reasons”.

“I live in hope that we will play together again,” he said, “but it is very unlikely that we will go out on tour.”


He also spoke about the charity gig the band were due to play late last year, that they ended up pulling out of.

“It would have been entirely wrong to do such a small charity gig as Pink Floyd,” he said, adding that he didn’t think it would have benefited the charity concerned if they had played.

Pink Floyd last played together at 2005’s Live 8 concert in Hyde Park, London.
