Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has announced that the iconic British band could reunite for charity.

The group, who last performed at the Live 8 concert in 2005, have been inactive for a number of years – but Mason says the right cause could prompt them to put aside their differences.

“I think all of us would like the idea of repeating the Live 8 concept… something that’s not necessarily for us, but do something for the right reasons and enjoy doing it,” he said. “I think it would be a very nice way for a band to gently move towards retirement, by doing shows absolutely for charity rather than for more income.”

Two of the band’s founders – Roger Waters and David Gilmourperformed together for the Hoping Foundation at an event earlier this year.

“In a way the best thing would be to do a number of shows and have some sort of foundation,” Mason told BBC News. “We all individually have pet projects and what we did at Earls Court [in 1994] was we pooled the money and each of us decided which particular things they would like some of the money to go towards, which was brilliant. That’s the way to do it.”
