Video: Roger Waters and David Gilmour Reunite For Hope
It was kind of surprising that no video footage of the reunited [lastfm]Pink Floyd [/lastfm] members Roger Waters and David Gilmour was made available after their performance last month at the Hoping Foundation Charity concert. Finally after a month of waiting and only a few pictures that captured the moment, live footage has surfaced on the web of the momentous four-song set.
Resolving their past differences to put on a benefit concert of epic proportions, Waters and Gilmour were only supposed to play a three-song mini concert at the charity function for the Hoping Foundation, but the audience was so moved by their first performance together on stage in five years that they started throwing out money to hear them play one more tune.
One man offered up £50,000 for the duo to play “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt 2,” and when it’s for charity, how can you turn down a chance to raise extra moolah? “Some other people were also saying they’d give £200,000 for them to play one more song,” benefit organizer Bella Freud said. “David and Roger — they looked so happy up there and they made something so beautiful happen.”
Sit back and get “Comfortably Numb” with half of [lastfm]Pink Floyd[/lastfm] performing Phil Spector’s “To Know Him is To Love Him,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Comfortably Numb” and “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” in an intimate concert for 200.
