Pink Floyd to Tour Without Pink Floyd Songs

London, England — The surviving members of legendary rock band Pink Floyd will reunite next year with a North American tour. A tour that the band says will be “on Pink Floyd’s terms.”

“We’ve decided to put our grievances – our very strong grievances – aside and just sort of get on with it,” says guitarist David Gilmour via Skype, “and the only way we could manage to do that was to put the entire Pink Floyd repertoire aside for this tour. Roger [Waters] has refused to play any Pink Floyd songs, and I am okay with that.”

Roger Waters just laughed. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” Waters says. “I’m willing to play virtually any Pink Floyd song ever written. I have, however, explained to Dave that I won’t perform the shit he put out as an impostor of the Pink Floyd band. We have these various points of disagreement, but I think Dave, Nick, and I all are willing to do what Rick would have wanted us to do.”

Rick Wright was the keyboardist for Pink Floyd since the band’s founding, going back to the Syd Barrett days when Roger didn’t think he ran the whole thing. Rick Wright died on September 15, 2008. Wright’s passing has cast many doubts on the possibility of a Pink Floyd reunion, as he was an integral part of the sound of the band.

Drummer Nick Mason explains, “Rick was always the peacemaker in the group. Without him I didn’t see any way to get Dave and Roger to work together ever again. Can I have another beer, please?”

Mason came by our Penn Valley offices to play us a DVD of the rehearsals. He happened to be picking up some “equipment” from a guy I know in North San Juan. What we saw on our 80” 4K screen was simply astounding. Waters has added his light show to that of the already world famous Pink Floyd visual effects repertoire. The results were other-worldly and visually stunning.

Richard Gere should hope to look so cool.

  1. My wife and I will definitely be interested in traveling to see them in concert. I love Pink Floyd and their style of music and performances.

    1. Of course it’s real! I was there! They are rehearsing a bunch of cover songs, 4 demos that didn’t make the cut (it’s approximately 20 min. of unreleased tape hiss with Roger’s coughing during Ummagumma sessions and some weird noises). You’ll be pleased with the result. I am 100% positive!

  2. oh my dog! i NEED to know if this is for real, if it is i have a grandma for sale if anyone is interested to fund my tickets

  3. Pssst Roger………. I’d vomit if I heard you attempt Casey Jones.
    I couldn’t care less about Metallica’s song other than think to myself………. Have you lost your freaking mind?????

    I had already said that I wouldn’t go to see Pink Floyd if they got back together, as without Wright, it’s just not going to work.
    But not playing any Floyd songs?

    Well I guess that’s proof that Rick Wright is irreplaceable.

  4. They should set up a competition and have people send them original songs that they could pick for their new repetoire

  5. This is most definitely bullshit as no other media outlet is reporting this. I hope it’s true, but if it’s not, and I am 95% sure it’s fake, the author of this click bait should be held down, while Waters angrily kicks him in the balls, and does not stop until his deep-seated father issues are resolved at last. This would obviously take so long that the author would expire from ball trauma.

  6. So… here we have the GOOD NEWS… that Pink Floyd is well, I myself believing that this is guided by Richard Wright from heaven above, and then we read these above comments as to where we folks really stand??? Now… that… must be the joke of jokes!!! And I wouldn´t be surprised if… simply due to that… it just wouldn´t happen!!! Then again I am hoping… That doubt and destructive criticism that have nothing to do with music or any kind of art… will not be allowed to triumph over the true music-devoted dedication to one another and the unique dimension of sound and light that surround all great bands, some of them in an extremely special way, such as PINK FLOYD!!!

  7. I’m still laughing out loud that some of you actually fell for this …..
    It’s a tongue in cheek ‘joke’ story
    ????????
