Pink Floyd: David Gilmour and Roger Waters Reunited With Nick Mason Tonight

Last July Roger Waters made big news when he announced that his former Pink Floyd band mate David Gilmour would join him on stage at a The Wall gig to play and sing Comfortably Numb. Apparently tonight’s the night as Gilmour’s blog includes an entry stating that David will join Rog at the 02 Arena in London this evening.

Those hoping for future Gilmour guest spots will be disappointed to know that this is a one-off appearance…

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.

We’ll be sure to share some videos and photos as they surface.

UPDATE: As expected Gilmour did join Waters for Comfortably Numb. The other surviving Pink Floyd member, Nick Mason, joined Gilmour and Waters for the Outside The Wall finale. Mason joined his old mates on tambourine. READ ON for a photo and a video of Dave tearing shit up…

Entire Pink Floyd Catalog To Be Remastered

If you’re like us you wore out your copies of Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall and other Pink Floyd albums in high school. On September 26 there will finally be a reason to pick up new copies of Floyd’s 14 original studio LPs as a feature-loaded set of remasters will come out that day on CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, an array of digital formats, viral marketing and iPhone Apps.

The new remasters come in four different varieties – Discovery, Experience, Immersion and Vinyl. The Discovery series are for newcomers to the music of Pink Floyd as they will feature all 14 albums  “painstakingly digitally remastered” by The Wall co-producer James Guthrie in “newly crafted packaging and booklets created by the band’s long-time artwork collaborator Storm Thorgerson.” You can buy all 14 albums together in the Discovery Box Set or individually.

Unreleased material starts flying in the Experience series which features the remastered versions of Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall, each with a bonus disc of additional material and expanded liner notes. The Dark Side set includes a previously unreleased recording of the album performed at Wembley Stadium in 1974, Wish You Were Here features outtakes and live material from that era, while The Wall’s bonus material is still to be determined.

Announcing: Roger Waters – The Wall Tour

As we mentioned last week – and after being heavily rumored on the internet for months – former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters today announced that he will indeed be dusting off The Wall to perform the seminal album in its entirety in honor of its 30th anniversary. Waters, whose last tour featured a full rendition of Dark Side Of The Moon, is “promising to bring an updated version of the legendary set into the 21st century”.

Pink Floyd’s original tour behind The Wall, which was documented and released as the live album Is There Anybody Out There?, was a multimedia spectacle that featured the band playing as a 40-foot brick wall was slowly constructed behind them and featured animated films projected onto it, while inflatable characters floated into the audience.

Waters’ website relaunched today with a full redesign featuring ticketing and tour information. READ ON for the full list of tour dates…
