Pink Floyd to Tour Without Pink Floyd Songs

London, England — The surviving members of legendary rock band Pink Floyd will reunite next year with a North American tour. A tour that the band says will be “on Pink Floyd’s terms.”

“We’ve decided to put our grievances – our very strong grievances – aside and just sort of get on with it,” says guitarist David Gilmour via Skype, “and the only way we could manage to do that was to put the entire Pink Floyd repertoire aside for this tour. Roger [Waters] has refused to play any Pink Floyd songs, and I am okay with that.”

Roger Waters just laughed. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” Waters says. “I’m willing to play virtually any Pink Floyd song ever written. I have, however, explained to Dave that I won’t perform the shit he put out as an impostor of the Pink Floyd band. We have these various points of disagreement, but I think Dave, Nick, and I all are willing to do what Rick would have wanted us to do.”

Rick Wright was the keyboardist for Pink Floyd since the band’s founding, going back to the Syd Barrett days when Roger didn’t think he ran the whole thing. Rick Wright died on September 15, 2008. Wright’s passing has cast many doubts on the possibility of a Pink Floyd reunion, as he was an integral part of the sound of the band.

Drummer Nick Mason explains, “Rick was always the peacemaker in the group. Without him I didn’t see any way to get Dave and Roger to work together ever again. Can I have another beer, please?”

  1. It’s this attitude fro Roger Waters thats the problem, like many GREAT bands it’s the combination of the whole that makes them so special. Roger being such an angry young man wrote great lyrics, but it took Gilmour and Wright to give them meaning and soul. Why would Gilmour and Mason need Waters on tour for not playing Floyd songs ? his vocals are poor at best and he’s an average bass player.

    1. Interesting if this isn’t B.S.! (Is this April 1st? 😁)

      I thought Nick Mason was too busy with his Saucerful of Secrets tour.

      I could see a mini tour in the U.S., but not an all out, full fledged, tour. Probably only in the U.K.!

  2. I think what that egotistical maniac is saying they can only sing floyd songs under the original flag. Not after glamour continued the band !!

  3. I don’t care what they think of each other I would give everything for a chance to see David Gilmour.
    Having said that this story has made the rounds a few times so I doubt it’s legit but one can only hope.
    David Gilmour … please. Please. please
    Come to Australia

  4. Gilmour is the real reason they haven’t played together since live Aid. He has said that many times since then. Waters was the one that finally wanted to do it, but Gilmore said it was done!

  5. I just want Dave Gilmour to your UK Again
    Just amazing.. would be nice if they joined up not holding any hope .
    Gilmour is a genius!

  6. Get rid of Waters They don’t need him Floyd has put out great music since roger water tatrum. He can’t sing anymore
