Roger Waters and Nick Mason said they would reunite as Pink Floyd for a performance at the Glastonbury music festival.

Waters and Mason were in London for the opening of a new exhibit on Pink Floyd when they were asked if they would consider getting back together for one last performance at the annual Glastonbury festival in Somerset, England.

“It would be nice to add it to the list of things. I’ve never played Glastonbury,” Mason said. “It would be fun to do it. … [But] I don’t think it would be very likely.”

“I did Glastonbury once,” Waters added. “I think. It was really cold. But there were a lot of people and it seemed very jolly and I liked it. Yeah, I would do it again.”

Although there has been no news on whether David Gilmour would join them.

Waters said, “The last I heard, David had retired.” 

“I heard he retired, then he seemed to unretire,” said Mason. 

in 2014 Gilmour and Mason put together what they called Pink Floyd’s final album, The Endless River in 2014. The album was a tribute to Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright who died in 2008.

The last time the four members last played together was in 2005.

In 2011, Gilmour and Mason joined Waters onstage in London.

However a couple of years ago Gilmour told The Telegraph, “Roger and I don’t particularly get along. We still talk. It’s better than it has been. But it wouldn’t work. People change. Roger and I have outgrown each other, and it would be impossible for us to work together on any realistic basis.”
