Roger Waters and Nick Mason Play Surprise Reunion
Last week, at New York concert by Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, Roger Waters stunned fans by coming out to sing “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun.” We’re very, very close and old friends,” Waters told the crowd. “Loving the show, by the way, Nick. My considered opinion is that you sound a lot better than we did back in the day.”
The surprise reunion was the first time the two had played together since May 12th, 2011, when Mason and David Gilmour both joined Waters at a London stop of his The Wall Live tour. Gilmour played guitar and sang on “Comfortably Numb” that night, but Mason only came out at the end to shake a tambourine on the finale of “Outside the Wall.” That’s the last time the three surviving members of Pink Floyd shared a stage.
