Pink Floyd's Gilmour tests Waters -- but he won't be back

Anthony Barnes in London

Pink Floyd star David Gilmour yesterday insisted his reunion with Roger Waters on stage in London will not be repeated.

The pair, who had a bitter falling-out lasting many years, put their differences aside to share a public stage at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday night.

Gilmour added his distinctive lead guitar flourishes to 'Comfortably Numb' at the sell-out performance, as a guest of Waters who has revived the epic and legendary 'Wall' live show.

Gilmour -- who played his solo from the top of the wall -- emphasised that the guest appearance would not be repeated at further shows.

A message posted on his website said it was "most definitely a one-off".

"David is not repeating his special guest performance at a later occasion, I'm sorry to disappoint those of you with fingers crossed and tickets for later shows," the message continued.

Waters is due to bring the show to the 02 in Dublin on May 23.

The duo were also joined for the encore line-up by Floyd drummer Nick Mason.
