Roger Waters and David Gilmour reuniting for The Wall tour
Most epic reunion ever? It definitely could rank up there.
Roger Waters and David Gilmour will reunite for one show during Waters’ The Wall tour which kicks off on September 15th in Toronto. The news was broken on the Facebook page for the tour when Waters about the recent benefit gig the two Pink Floyd members played.
Waters wrote that he and Gilmour were emailing each other back and forth about the song “To Know Him Is To Love Him” and whether they should perform it at the benefit concert. Gilmour first wrote that…ah, I’ll just let Roger take it from here:
Some weeks passed with David cajoling me from time to time, telling me how easy it would be, but I clung resolutely to my fear of failure until one day he made one final entreaty. I quote “If you do ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’ for The Hoping Foundation Gig, I’ll come and do ‘(Comfortably) Numb’ on one of your Wall shows”.
So there you have it. They played the song at the gig and now David Gilmour will perform the epic classic “Comfortably Numb” on stage with Roger Waters for one show. As Waters put it “End of Story. Or possibly beginning.” I like the way he ends that note. Very cryptic but filled with hope. Makes me cry a little bit.
The only question now is which show will Gilmour play? Waters said the Gilmour will decide but I can tell you that whatever show it ends up being, prepare to lie, cheat, steal and possibly kill to get into that show because it’s gonna be the toughest ticket in town to get.
