Thought Gilmore Mason and Walters had agreed to play together again after enjoying Live Aid 8 thing whatever it was called
Walters has toured it a couiple of times IIRC he does a stonking "Mother" with a black backing singer
I always thought his voice wasn't as strong as Gilmore's but if it's this good all through I'l go I think
There is rumour control doing the rounds that Gilmour will join him on stage during at least one of the O2 gigs next May.
Read a review of the first concert of his world tour in Toronto (in Classic Rock). Has the makings of a fabulous event and if you like the Floyd I would urge you to snap up a ticket for the additional O2 shows before they sell out again(if they haven't already!).
I'm reading this post and all that I can imagine are Pulse like concerts with Waters in tow. If this turns out to be the case then it should be one of the best tours in many, many years. Just as long as they end with the Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell light show. Very awesome indeed!
He did a couple of one-off songs with Waters on his solo tours, but I thought that they only came together for Live8. I also thought that after the death of Wright that the chances of a Gilmore/Waters/Mason tour would be much less likely to happen. But I love the thought of it one day happening.
A friend went to see the concert recently and said it was excellent, I've only heard good comments so far.
I'm going to see him next month in Anaheim, California and then in May next year at the 02. I'll be keeping my finger's crossed that
the concert I see in May will be the one that David Gilmour puts in a show! I've never seen any of the original band before, just the Aussie Pink Floyd (pretty good) so am looking forward to seeing Waters live.

Neither was I, not a patch on 'Dark Side of the Moon', mind you I saw Jethro Tull live in 1979 , of course, I never mentioned that to the recruiting sergeant as I would never have got in. Come to think of it I wish I had. Bugger !
