Pink Floyd say touring in support of The Endless River is "impossible"

Pink Floyd have said that they have no plans to tour in support of their new album The Endless River.

The legendary rockers will release the album on November 10th. It is the band's first studio album in 20 years and 15th album of their career. 

Asked by Rolling Stone about the possibility of a tour in support of the album, guitarist Dave Gilmour said that without keyboardist Richard Wright, who passed away in 2008, a tour was "impossible". 

He said: "Without [Rick], that’s kind of impossible. I’m really enjoying my life and my music. There’s no room for Pink Floyd. The thought of doing any more causes me to break out in a cold sweat."

Gilmour added that this would be the band's last album, saying: "Anything we had of value is on this album. Trying to do it again would mean using second-best material, and that’s not good enough for me."

Earlier this month it was revealed that scientist Stephen Hawking will appear on a track on The Endless River. 

This would mark the second time Hawking has appeared on a Pink Floyd album after he appeared on their 1994 album The Division Bell. On that occasion he appeared on a track called 'Keep Talking', given this is a similar title to 'Talkin' Hawkin'' it seems likely that this new track will be a sequel of sorts to that song.
