David Gilmour will join Roger Waters at one show on the U.K. leg of The Wall tour. The elaborate show will play for six nights at London's O2 Arena in May and it will hit the Manchester MEN Arena on May 20 and 21. "I think it's beginning to look now as if he'll [Gilmour] do one gig," Waters said, according to NME. "He'll do 'Comfortably Numb' at one gig. It's a big secret when." In an interview with Sky News, Waters added that the tour, which sees a 240ft-wide and 35ft-tall wall being dismantled throughout the show, will most likely be the last time he does anything of a similar scale. "Constructing something like this indoors - I'll probably never do anything this big again, the technology of projection we've used in this show is breathtaking," he said.

Will The Kinks finally get back together after teasing a reunion for years? If Ray Davies is to be believed, it may happen very soon. "I’m seeing Dave next week," Ray Davies told Rolling Stone in a new interview. "I hear that Dave is saying stuff in the press like, 'I’ll do it, but Ray doesn’t want to do it.' This is me saying, 'Ray will do it if Dave does it.'" The Davies brothers were previously contemplating a tour back in 2004, but then Dave Davies was sidelined by a stroke, from which he has fully recovered. "Our plans always weave in and out of peoples' health trauma," Dave said. "A reunion is possible. There's nothing in the pipeline yet, but we'll see. It's possible."
