Holy shit guys, Gilmour and Waters played together last night



David Gilmour: The Blog

Hoping Foundation

11 July 2010 at 18:48

Last night, Saturday 10 July, David performed at a charity event in aid of the Hoping Foundation (‘Hoping’ stands for ‘Hope and Optimism for Palestinians in the Next Generation’)… with one Roger Waters, who some of you might know.

There’s the photographic evidence, if you don’t believe me – from rehearsals.

The event, organised by Bella Freud and Karma Nabulsi, took place at Kidlington in Oxfordshire, England and raised a most welcome £350,000.

They performed four songs before 200 guests, accompanied by Guy Pratt (on bass and acoustic guitar), Harry Waters (on keyboards), Andy Newmark (on drums), Chester Kamen (on guitar) and Jonjo Grisdale (also on keyboards).

Songs were ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’, which, I’m told, regularly featured in Pink Floyd sound checks way back when, followed by Pink Floyd favourites: ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Comfortably Numb’, and the one that got everybody singing along, ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Part Two)’.

Well, well, well… Bet you weren’t expecting that. Hoping, indeed.

Didn't they just play with eachother like four or five years ago at Live 8? I don't know, the reactions so far in here make it seem like this is the first time they'd gotten back together since the glory days.

Yeah, but that was the whole band, reuniting for a "higher purpose" and so on. In the interviews afterwards it was quite noticeable that the animosity between the two has not yet been completely cleared (although much better than before). To see them in amiable terms in an intimate acoustic setting is pretty shocking. In the best way possible.

^Yeah, and after Live 8, they both toured separately. David for On an Island, and Roger for...well, nothing. They both held tour rehearsals in buildings on the same grounds at overlapping times. On David's Remember That Night dvd from his tour, in the bonus features, it shows a brief clip of them meeting on the grounds of their respective rehearsal areas, and it was AWK-WARD times a billion. So even after Live 8, there was no love lost between them.

Maybe things have changed now, who knows. If they have buried the hatchet at least somewhat, it's too bad they waited till after Rick Wright was gone.

This was, again, a charity benefit show. So, same thing.

Plenty of charity benefit shows around. Live 8 was once in a lifetime occasion (or twice if you feel all technical). Hardly the same thing. And they do seem much more comfortable around each other. Maybe a sign of things to come... though I doubt it.

The cynic in me says maybe they're both broke and figure a reunion tour would be good for their bank balances.
