LONDON, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Britain's Q music magazine says Pink Floyd is reuniting for a 2005 tour, although informed sources, including the band's manager, said the rumor is false.

October's Q, the only publication to have the information, quoted bassist/lyricist Roger Waters as saying the reunited band will play a "series of lucrative shows next year," Pollstar reported Wednesday.

Booking agent Barbara Skydel of William Morris Agency, who has had longtime ties with Waters, said the news was the first time she had heard the rumor.

Skydel contacted Water's manager who told Pollstar there is no truth to the rumor "at this time."

Another source laughed out loud at the suggestion, Pollstar said.

A reunion tour, which could gross more than $100 million, would involve the band members setting aside 20 years of difference, including hard feelings over Waters' failed 1986 legal action to prevent guitarist David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason from using the band's name without him.
