David Gilmour Dismisses Pink Floyd Olympics Reunion

04/01/2012 07:49

Rocker David Gilmour has squashed reports suggesting the living members of Pink Floyd will reunite for a London Olympics spectacular.

The guitar great has been quick to respond to a London Evening Standard story, which linked the band to the summer sports extravaganza, insisting there's nothing to the report.

A representative for the rocker says: "David Gilmour can confirm that there is no truth in recent media speculation about Pink Floyd reuniting to perform for the 2012 London Olympics."

If true, the show would have marked the band's first official performance together since Live 8 in 2005.

Gilmour and former bandmates Nick Mason and Roger Waters teamed up for a brief reunion at Waters' The Wall concert in London last year - but all parties declared the get together was a one-off.

Roger Taylor and Brian May have also been linked to an Olympics-launching spectacular, as has Sir Paul McCartney.

At present, no big names have been confirmed for concerts to launch the Games but dance music duo Underworld have been appointed the event's musical directors.
