Roger Waters vows to play 'celebratory gig' on U.S. border to Mexico

Pink Floyd Previews London Show, Speaks of Glastonbury Rumor, Donald Trump, Mexico And 'The Wall'

Roger Waters and Nick Mason made a rare appearance together on Thursday and said they would be up for playing Glastonbury, presumably music to the ears of the festival's founder, Michael Eavis, who past year said his wishlist included Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac.

Pink Floyd icon Roger Waters recently announced plans to head out on a huge us tour later this year. It will be a cool show, I promise you.

The pair also revealed they would consider playing Glastonbury, with Mason saying: "I think it would be nice to add it to the list".

However, after "reuniting" a year ago to release a joint statement condemning Israeli forces over the detention of female activists sailing to Gaza, Waters and drummer Nick Mason appeared together on Thursday (February 16) at a press conference at the V&A museum in London.

"It would be fun to do it, but I don't think its very likely". Asked about U.S. President Donald Trump's proposal to build a wall on the border with Mexico, Waters said: "The building of walls between nations and between religions and between races and between different groups of people with different beliefs is invariably counterproductive".

The Guardian reports that Mason replied: "I heard he'd retired and then he seemed to unretire, so we don't know".

The V&A hopes the exhibition will match the success of its record-breaking David Bowie retrospective. He said in 2015: "Roger and I don't particularly get along".

Archivists have discovered the cane, once brandished by the headmaster at the Cambridgeshire High School for Boys.

The experience may have been embellished for The Wall's story of rebellion against totalitarianism. Waters commemorated the fall of the Berlin wall in 1990 with a performance of The Wall. "Yeah, I would do it again".

"If that happened to be the border between the United States and Mexico then yeah absolutely", he added. It will be followed by an worldwide tour, Us & Them.
