Gilmour, Waters to reunite again

Following last week’s pairing at a UK charity show (see here for details), David Gilmour and Roger Waters will team up once again.

Gilmour will make a surprise appearance at one of Waters’ 30th Anniversary Tour shows of “The Wall” this fall. The Waters tour kicks off September 15 in Toronto; it was not announced at which show Gilmour will play.

Apparently, the two Pink Floyd members made a deal surrounding the recent Hoping Foundation benefit show: if Waters would agree to perform "To Know Him Is To Love Him" at the gala, Gilmour would guest on "Comfortably Numb" at a to-be-determined show on Waters' upcoming tour.

"You could have knocked me down with a feather," Waters says. "How f*cking cool! I was blown away. How could I refuse such an offer. I couldn't, there was no way. Generosity trumped fear. And so explaining that I would probably be sh*te, but if he didn't mind I didn't, I agreed and the rest is history. We did it, and it was f*cking great. End of story. Or possibly beginning."
