Nick Mason back with Roger Waters - live! Print E-mail

The first of Roger's Wembley shows proved to be an exciting event - the rumours of Nick's guest appearance came true when his car swung into the backstage compound at Wembley Arena behind Roger's car. During the soundcheck, Nick ran through Set The Controls, Brain Damage/Eclipse, and (possibly) part of Comfortably Numb.

Come the show itself (which had the band on blistering form - from speaking to those who'd travelled round from show to show on this tour, it was one of the best performances!), Roger halted before Set The Controls for a very special announcement:

Rod Stewart, headline act on the Pyramid Stage (main stage) on the final night of the Glastonbury Festival (Sunday June 30th), is looking doubtful now due to being struck with a throat infection. He has already had to cancel a show in Dublin, and his appearance at Glastonbury hangs in the balance of how he feels, and what his doctors advise. It would therefore make sense, if he was not to show, to get Roger to increase the length of his set. Having said that, many festivals have issues keeping to time, so Rod's non-appearance (if that is indeed what happens) might just mean the final night finishes on time and the local authorities are kept happy...

UPDATE: this has now been confirmed.

Another new DVD with David Gilmour appearance, coming Print E-mail

This one not so exciting as the ones in the previous news story, but could be interesting to big Gilmour fans all the same. Sir Paul McCartney is to release footage of his wedding to Heather Mills - in which amongst other music legends, David Gilmour was a guest - on the end of a DVD of his (McCartney's) recent live US shows. It will be released later in the year - date to be confirmed.

As the wedding itself was shrouded in a certain amount of secrecy (and why not? It should be a private occasion) we have no idea if any guests indulged in a jam, despite a huge array of talent being present. So, you may just get a fleeting glipse of His Gilmourship resplendent in his finest gear...

Nick Mason performing at Wembley Arena (unconfirmed) Print E-mail

The rumours are getting ever stronger that Nick will be playing drums on "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" both nights that Roger is playing at Wembley. Coupled with the rumour that he is ALSO appearing with Roger at Glastonbury, if true it is a very positive move that shows that reconciliation has indeed happened, and that, for at least some members of the band, they can move on from past events.
