Pink Floyd set for London Olympics reunion gig

Pink Floyd are reportedly set to reunite and perform at the London Olympics.

An insider told the Daily Express: “Its long been made clear it would take something very special to get Pink Floyd back together again and it doesn’t get any bigger than the Olympics.

“Like Sir Paul [McCartney, who is tipped to open the event], they have been a major part of the nation’s culture over the past 40 years and it will be very fitting that they’re involved when London is on show to the world.

“It’s hoped everything can be confirmed in the coming weeks.”

Last year, surviving Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, Nick Mason and David Gilmour briefly reunited onstage at Roger’s solo concert to perform a rendition of the band’s The Wall album at The O2.

Floyd split up in 1985 when Waters quit and the band last had a full-on reunion gig in 2005, for Live 8.

Though the rumours for an Olympic get-together are strong, it’s not in the bag yet.

Following their O2 performance in May, Waters wrote on his blog: “I should also remind you that tonight is most definitely a one-off.”
