Posting the news on Facebook, Waters excitedly explains that Gilmour has offered to join him on stage at the 30th anniversary resurrection of 'The Wall' live shows which he begins in Canada on Sept. 15, and comes to the UK in May 2011.
He describes how he was "blown away" when former bandmate Gilmour emailed and proposed, "If you do 'To Know Him is to Love Him' for The HOPING Foundation Gig, I'll come and do 'C. Numb' on one of your Wall shows."
Waters says, teasingly, "How could I refuse such an offer. I couldn't, there was no way. Generosity trumped fear. And so explaining that I would probably be s---- -- but if he didn't mind I didn't -- I agreed and the rest is history. We did it, and it was f---ing great. End of story. Or possibly beginning."
A 'PS' tacked on the end of the note, adds to the anticipation of when exactly the pair will appear together. "Just heard from David, he will decide in due course which gig he wants to do, it will be a surprise!"
The Facebook note also pokes gentle fun at their famous long-running feud, saying, "Someone, I think it was David himself, came up with this 'Wouldn't it be funny', idea. What if he (David that is) were to sing the old Teddy Bears song 'To Know Him is to Love Him' with me (Roger that is), what with us having been so famously at each other's throats for years and years. Get it!!!!"
The post has already attracted almost 1,000 comments from fans demanding that Gilmour appear with Waters in various cities on the tour, the majority so far wishing for Antwerp, Belgium.
