David Gilmour and Roger Waters reuniting in Omaha? Seems likely.

Roger Waters hinted at a reunion with former Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour for one date on his "The Wall" tour.

Looks like that date is in Omaha.

The (Minneapolis) Star-Tribune's Chris Riemenschneider was kind enough to send me this story, which basically says that Waters was spotted dining with Gilmour last night in Minneapolis.

A recent issue of Rolling Stone with Waters on the cover made reference to the one-off reunion of the formerly bickering bandmates. Omaha was mentioned in an off-hand manner, but it looks like it might happen tonight at the Qwest Center.

Update: Rolling Stone and others are reporting that Gilmour was not, in fact, in Minnesota. Seems like it was a case of mistaken identity in Minnesota last night. Floyd reps are denying it, etc. Still, I'll keep my eye out at tonight's show.

Update 2: No Gilmour. Still a fan-freaking-tastic show. But Gilmour was nowhere to be seen. Waters' band actually uses two guys to replace him (one on guitar and one singing), but it works.

Update 3: In case you're looking for it, here's my review of the show.


  1. I'm still not sure how them being in Minneapolis together means that they are playing in Nebraska. But it sounds like it's going to be one of the two shows for sure!

  2. True. I think the possibility is interesting. If it's not tonight in Omaha, it will be tomorrow in St. Paul.

  3. Seems Rolling Stone is debunking the MPLS Gilmour dining story after contacting Waters reps.

    The guy who saw them still swears it was him.. but could be a case of mistaken ID?

  4. Yeah, I've been talking to the RS guys today. Seems like it was a case of mistaken identity. Still, I'll be keeping an eye out.

  5. at least you guys will get GE Smith (validated diner at Bar La Grassa)

    Perhaps an encore of "Private Eyes" CLAPCLAP

  6. Yeah, never seen GE Smith outside of SNL performances from 20 years ago. Fantastic show.
