Pink Floyd legend set for one-off performance of instrumental

Dave Gilmour is to perform Pink Floyd‘s ‘Atom Heart Mother’ live this month – with a Pink Floyd covers band.

The instrument suite from the prog legend’s fifth album – and first UK Number One – is being performed as part of the Chelsea Festival at Cadogan Hall on June 14 and 15 by its co-composer Ron Geesin.

The show will feature a 10-piece brass ensemble from The Royal College Of Music, cellist Caroline Dale, Canticum – a 40-strong chorus – and Italian Pink Floyd tribute band Mun Floyd.

However Geesin has revealed today (June 2) that Pink Floyd guitarist Gilmour will take part in the second performance on June 15.
