Speaking about his own solo tour, David Gilmour recently said “I’m rather hoping that with this tour announcement people will believe me when I say, honestly, this is the only band I plan to tour with!”.
Make of the Sunday Mirror story what you will! I am not convinced myself!
The Daily Star newspaper (another trashy British tabloid) also reported the Pink FLoyd would be reforming in the article to the right.

EXCLUSIVE: FLOYD: WALL MEET AGAIN
By Ben Todd Showbiz Editor
PINK Floyd have put an end to their feud â€” and months of speculation – to re-form for their first full concerts in more than 20 years.
The legendary band led by famously warring duo Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour plus Nick Mason and Rick Wright will play at least two money-spinning dates at London’s Royal Albert Hall later this year.
Following the psychedelic band’s successful performance at Live 8, concerts have been pencilled in for November. A source said: “Live 8 felt like a turning point. They are all now looking forward to getting back on stage together.”
Watched by a global audience of three billion, Floyd stole the show at Live 8 last summer, despite playing just four songs. Tickets for the 7,000-I capacity venue are 1 likely to be snapped up within hours, leading to a brisk black market.
