For the first time in half a decade, rock legends Pink Floyd reunited for a Palestine awareness benefit concert in England to raise money for young Palestinians, MSNBC reported Tuesday.
Feuding PINK FLOYD stars DAVID GILMOUR and ROGER WATERS put their differences aside on Saturday (10Jul10) to perform together at a the Hoping Foundation awareness benefit in England.
The two rockers hit the stage at Kiddington Hall in Oxfordshire, England to the amazement of guests in attendance. It was the first time the duo had shared a stage since Pink Floyd’s Live 8 appearance in 2005.
The former bandmates, who were accompanied by Guy Pratt and Waters’ son Harry, among others, played Floyd favourites:
“Wish You Were Here”
“Another Brick in the Wall”
as well as a cover of Phil Spector’s “To Know Him Is To Love Him.”
The event raised over $500,000 (£333,000) for the charity organisation which aids Palestinian kids.
