Roger Waters and David Gilmour Perform Together For Charity
by Tim Cashmere - July 12 2010
Roger Waters and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd performed an unexpected charity gig last night in support of the HOPING Foundation.
It was the first time the pair had performed on stage together since the Live 8 concert in London on July 2, 2005.
The pair played with Guy Pratt on bass, Harry Waters on keyboards, Andy Newmark on drums, Chester Kamen on guitar and Jonjo Grisdale on keyboards.
They played ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’ by The Teddy Bears, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Another Brick In The Wall (Part Two)’.
The even was organised by Bella Freud and Karma Nabulsi and took place at Kidlington in Oxfordshire, England, raising £350,000.
HOPING stands for “Hope and Optimism for Palestinians in the Next Generation”.
(Good to see that Roger and David can still get together once in a while on a stage and perform. I guess Nick was unavailable to perform? Else it would have been a sort of Pink Floyd reunion. Wonder if Roger and David talk of Roger's The Wall tour & if David would consider guest spotting on some of the tour dates? Well one can wish :)
