Singer will tie the knot before he hits the road in early 2012
Former Pink Floyd co-frontman Roger Waters is to marry for a fourth time, his longtime girlfriend has confirmed.
Waters, who will be on the road throughout 2012 with his live show in which he performs the entirety of Pink Floyd‘s classic 1979 concept album ‘The Wall’, will marry partner of seven years Laurie Durning before he begins the tour.
Durning, who works as filmmaker, told the New York Post that wedding plans were definitely underway, telling the paper: “It just seems like a good time to do it before the tour”.
Waters confirmed earlier this year that despite his tour of Pink Floyd material, he has no desire to work with the band again.
He said: “I’m really glad that I was in that band for the 20 years that I was in it and I really enjoyed it. I think we did some great work together but I have no wish to do it ever again.”
Waters was joined onstage by former bandmates Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason when he brought his tour to London O2 Arena earlier this year, but they have not appeared together onstage since.
