ORIGINAL PINK FLOYD TO RE-UNITE               Supergroup Mini-Tour In Support Of New Lp

(London, England) – It’s the news Pink Floyd fans have been waiting almost 30 years to hear: all the original members of the British supergroup are officially getting back together to play a series of high-profile gigs in major cities early in 2015. Facebook and other social media are abuzz with the news that the 60s art rockers, minus deceased founder members Syd Barrett and Richard Wright, will perform a “mini-tour” in support of their new Lp The Endless River. Break out the inflatable pigs and 11kg white flat-fold 1.5m x 0.75m x 0.3m cardboard bricks in celebration as the classic rock behemoths once more stand astride the stage to perform hits like “Brian Damage”, “Another Prick In the Wall” and “Sign On You Crazy Diamond”, apart from bassist and creative lynchpin Roger Waters, who famously fell out with the band in the mid-1980s and has dismissed their subsequent music as “ersatz Pink Floyd”. Phones at Ticketmaster have been literally ringing off the hook as fans try and book tickets to see remaining Floyd members David Gilmour and Nick Mason appear, without drummer Mason, in concerts in London, Dortmund, Los Angeles and New York. Gilmour, the Pink Floyd guitarist and latter-day leader who has declined to perform with his former band, has praised the upcoming Floyd shows saying, “I’m sure they will be absolutely fabulous.”
