(LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM)
Surviving Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason surprised fans by appearing on stage together in London on Thursday (May 12), live at the O2 arena.
Gilmour appeared on top of a huge wall to the delight of Floyd devotees to perform the vocals and guitar solo for the track "Comfortably Numb" as part of Waters' rendition of "The Wall" album.
Towards the end of the show Waters invited Gilmour and other former bandmate Nick Mason to appear on stage so they could perform the final encore "Outside the Wall".
Roger played trumpet, David on mandolin and Nick played tambourine, leaving amazed fans cheering for more.
Rumours had been spreading that Waters and Gilmour would appear at some point together after the pair performed at a charity gala in 2010 -- but no-one had expected drummer Nick Mason to also turn up.
Thursday was the first time the band played together since Live 8 in 2005. That show marked Waters' first appearance with the band since he left in 1985. Fourth member Rick Wright also appeared at Live 8 but passed away in in 2008.
Pink Floyd are most famous for influential and acclaimed albums "The Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here" and "The Wall."
According to EMI, they have sold over 200 million albums worldwide.
In the United States, 1973's "The Dark Side of the Moon" sold 45 million copies and is the country's third best-selling album ever.
