Pink Floyd - Pink Floyd To Reunite For London Olympics?

Pink Floyd are reportedly set to reunite and perform at the London Olympics.

The surviving members from the definitive line-up of the psychedelic rockers last put their differences aside to play charity gig Live 8 in 2005 - their first public appearance as a band in 20 years - and are tipped to appear again at this year's summer sporting spectacle.

An insider told the Daily Express newspaper: "Its long been made clear it would take something very special to get Pink Floyd back together again and it doesn't get any bigger than the Olympics.

"Like Sir Paul [McCartney, who is tipped to open the event], they have been a major part of the nation's culture over the past 40 years and it will be very fitting that they're involved when London is on show to the world. It's hoped everything can be confirmed in the coming weeks."

Earlier this year, surviving Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, Nick Mason and David Gilmour briefly reunited onstage at Roger's solo concert to perform a rendition of the 'Dark Side Of The Moon' band's 'The Wall' album at London's The O2.

Following their reunion gig at Live 8, Roger - who quit the band in 1985, leading to a legal battle between him and David over the Pink Floyd name - and Nick have admitted they would be keen for the band to reform.

But Nick said it would have to be "a grander version of Live 8, driven by someone even more major than Bob Geldof."

David has so far resisted the idea and following their O2 performance in May, Roger wrote on his blog: "I should also remind you that tonight is most definitely a one-off."
