David Gilmour and Roger Waters Perform Together at Benefit
On Saturday in Oxfordshire, England, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and Roger Waters took the stage together at a benefit in England. The pair delivered four songs before an audience of 200 at the Hoping Foundation benefit in Oxfordshire, raising money for the Children of Gaza. The two, who had not taken the stage together since Live 8 in 2005, performed Phil Spector’s “To Know Him Is To Love Him,” which Pink Floyd soundchecked in past years, along with Floyd classics, “ Wish You Were Here,” “Comfortably Numb” and “Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2).” Gilmour and Waters were backed by Guy Pratt (bass and acoustic guitar), Harry Waters (keyboards), Andy Newmark (drums), Chester Kamen (guitar), and Jonjo Grisdale (keyboards).
Waters will begin his Wall tour in mid-September while Gilmour has no confirmed tour plans of his own.
