This may be old "news" to you guys, but what do you think? Bollocks if you ask me, I belive it when I see it.

By their own words I don't see how they'd be doing a fully fledged Floyd tour without Rick Wright.  Having said that, Gilmour and Waters did do some show together recently (which was wonderful to see on the Youtubes).  

*shrug*  I don't see it happening but if it came here, I'd go see it.  Not to be a total ass about it, but Rick Wright wasn't nearly as vital to The Wall as he was their earlier albums, so it's not like I'd be sitting there thinking "IT'S JUST NOT THE SAME".  Even without him, it would be infinitely more authentic than the Dark Side show that Waters was touring a couple of years back.

Now, if it were a full on Floyd tour with material from their other albums, it probably wouldn't hold up.

Not a massive Pink Floyd fan, but I have a friend who will be very interested by this. :D

Roger and David on the same stage would do it for me, no matter how stale it´ll be.

Ok, so now I found something.

Rogers is touring his old "The Wall". During one(1) venue Gilmour will join him onstage for one(1) song only.(Comfortably Numb is my guess) This is an agreement they did due to a previous charitygig they did, when Waters came to Davids aid. It seems to be going really well for the old bassplayer, no tickets left for two gigs here in Stockholm. Ah well, I´ll guess I have to do with my Pulse-DVD...
