Full Video of David Gilmour and Roger Waters at Hoping Foundation Fundraiser 2010
The video of Roger Waters and David Gilmour performing together at the Hoping Foundation charity event is now available for you to watch above.
Filmed by Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson, it shows clips the pair performing the 4 songs they played on July 10th 2010.
They played four songs including ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Part Two)’.
On his Facebook page, Roger Waters wrote, “Here is a 2 minute taster of the gig David and I did together for The Hoping Foundation back in July. The sound quality is crap but it was a great night for me, and for him, and also for “US and THEM” . Please support the Hoping Foundation, they are doing great work for refugee children. David and I have given the charity the whole 29 mins and I’m told they’re going to put it up at approximately 5.00pm (UK time) on Monday. Go to http://hopingfoundation.org/ to see the video and please support the charity if you can. Roger”

You can either view the 2 minute clip on Roger’s Facebook page or watch the full 29 minute version .
Perhaps open for debate is David attempting those high pitches in the first song To Know Him is to Love Him! Wish You Were Here sounded much better even if Roger must insist on applying his post Pink Floyd vocal style and melody on the song! Interesting swearing after Wish You Were Here even if a donation did follow.
Comfortably Numb was a small taster of what David Gilmour re-uniting with Roger Waters on The Wall Tour 2010 or 2011 will be like! Of course the staging will be much more grand and the experience of seeing that live will be something else. Still no news on which date David Gilmour will be choosing to perform with Roger Waters. Shame someone stood in front of the camera during the second solo and the sound was distorted somewhat! He did get a recording on his phone by the looks of it so perhaps to redeem himself… well… you never know what YouTube can throw up!
They finished with Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2) which is probably their most famous song amongst non-fans. haha
Please leave any comments or thoughts you may have on the! This is your big moment!
