Duo play together for Hoping Foundation
Pink Floyd‘s Roger Waters and David Gilmour collaborated onstage last night (July 10) for the first time in five years.
The duo played a four-song set for the Hoping Foundation at a fundraising event in Kidlington Hall, Oxford. With 200 people in the audience, the pair – augmented by a backing band – played four songs: ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Comfortably Numb’, ‘Another Brick In The Wall (Part Two)’ Phil Spector‘s ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’.
Financier Arpad Busson had pledged to donate $50,000 (£32,000) to the chairty, which helps Palestinian children, if the duo played ‘Another Brick In The Wall (Part Two)’.
The last time Waters and Gilmour appeared onstage together was at Live8 in 2005.
