Drummer Nick Mason says he thinks more gigs by the band are a real possibility
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has said he wants the band to reunite to play charity gigs.
Speaking at Manchester‘s In The City event yesterday (October 15), Mason added that he thinks bandmates Roger Waters and David Gilmour are also supportive of the idea.
“I think it would be a very nice way for a band to gently move towards retirement, by doing shows absolutely for charity rather than for more income,” he told BBC News.
“In a way the best thing would be to do a number of shows and have some sort of foundation.”
The band played together at Live 8 in 2005 along with keyboardist Richard Wright, who died in 2008, and Mason said that he believes all of the remaining members “would like the idea of repeating the Live 8 concept”. He added that he thinks all three currently “see eye to eye” on the issue.
In July, Waters and Gilmour performed together at a charity event, with the former admitting that the performances were “fucking great”.
