Standing ovation for Floydian reunion

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason joined former bandmate Roger Waters on stage Wednesday, June 26. Mason played "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" with Waters at Wembley Arena in London.

The surprise reunion was the first occasion Waters appeared on stage with any member of Pink Floyd since he left the group in a bitter split in 1983. The two received standing ovations from the enthusiastic crowd before and after the song.

The Wembley show was one of the last for Waters' 50-date "In the Flesh" tour. The tour started in February in South Africa, and wrapped up at the Glastonbury Festival Sunday, June 30.
