Nick Mason - In The City conference 2010Nick Mason, as part of his appearance as keynote speaker at this week's In The City music conference in Manchester, again answered the question about the possibility of a Pink Floyd reunion in some form. "I think all of us would like the idea of repeating the Live 8 concept," he said, adding that they could do "something that's not necessarily for us, but do something for the right reasons and enjoy doing it. That's what I'd like, and I think the others might well see eye to eye."

At the conference, Nick said that Live 8 could be a "template for something we would do again. I think it would be a very nice way for a band to gently move towards retirement, by doing shows absolutely for charity rather than for more income."

He later told the BBC that, like Live 8, any shows would be to help others. "In a way the best thing would be to do a number of shows and have some sort of foundation," he said. "We all individually have pet projects and what we did at Earls Court [in October 1994] was we pooled the money and each of us decided which particular things they would like some of the money to go towards, which was brilliant. That's the way to do it."
