Mason Backs Waters' Charity Pink Floyd Gigs

PINK FLOYD drummer NICK MASON is keen to take up ROGER WATERS' offer to reunite the band for a one-off concert - but only in the name of charity.
The legendary rockers last performed together at the Live 8 Concert in London in 2005. Waters and David Gilmour went on to join forces for a low-key charity gig in England in July (10).
Following the performance, Waters admitted he would like to reunite the surviving members of the band for another charity spectacular, saying, "David and Nick and I might do a one-off (show) somewhere, but there's no way we're going to do a tour... (Maybe) like a Live 8 but probably just with us."
And Mason agrees that gigs for a good cause would be the only way the stars would get back on stage again as Pink Floyd - and suggests setting up a charity "foundation" with the profits.
He tells BBC News, "I think all of us would like the idea of repeating the Live 8 concept... 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.
"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. In a way the best thing would be to do a number of shows and have some sort of foundation."
