Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has said he hopes the band will play live together again in the near future.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, Mason said he believed it would be “very unlikely” that the band will ever tour, but that he hoped they would play live again.

Mason said “I live in hope that they will play together again, but it is very unlikely that we will go out on tour.”


He also spoke about the charity gig the band were due to play late last year, which they subsequently pulled out of.

Mason said “It would have been entirely wrong to do such a small charity gig as Pink Floyd.”

He added that the band would have to reform “for the right reasons.”


Pink Floyd last played together at 2005’s Live 8 concert in Hyde Park.
