If it seems like a long time since Roger Waters took to his Facebook page to break the news that his old Pink Floyd band mate David Gilmour would perform at one of Waters’ The Wall Tour performances that’s because it was. Way back on July 15 Rog wrote a note mentioning that Gilmour told him ““If you do ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’ for The Hoping Foundation Gig, I’ll come and do ‘C. Numb’ on one of your Wall shows,” which led to a guessing game about which concert the guitarist would appear at.
Gilmour never wound up sitting in with Waters last year during the North American leg of the tour, but according to a new Waters’ interview with Sky News, the sit-in we’ve all been waiting for is still on the table. ”I hear the rumours – I think it’s beginning to look now as if he’ll do one gig, he’ll do Comfortably Numb at one gig,” Waters told Sky. Funny that Rog refers to them as “rumours” considering he’s the one spreading the news. Waters is still coy as to which particular concert Gilmour will join him at.
The European leg of The Wall Tour kicks off tonight at the Mediolanium Forum in Milan and does a big circle of the continent before ending at the same venue on July 7.
