Nick Mason In Massive London Charity Concert

This will be the charity concert of the year!

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason is to join a star studded collection of some of the biggest names in music at a massive charity concert at London’s O2 Arena on 3rd March 2020.

The incredible line up includes Eric Clapton, Sir Tom Jones, Gary Brooker of Procol Harum, Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall, John Illsley from Dire Straits, Paul Jones, Mike Rutherford, Paul Carrack, Bonnie Tyler, Paul Young, Zucchero, Rick Wakeman, Yusuf / Cat Stevens, Nick Mason.

Funds raised from the concert will go towards building The Royal Marsden’s brand new, state of the art treatment and research facility, the Oak Cancer Centre.

Eric Clapton said, “This is a great cause and I’m honoured to be part of the efforts to raise money for The Royal Marsden. I also couldn’t say no to the opportunity to work with the other artists and bandmates in the line-up. I am sure it’ll be a fantastic evening providing much needed support for this pioneering hospital.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday 6th December from: Bookingsdirect.com / Ticketmaster.com / Eventim.co.uk / AXS.com / Theo2.co.uk

More artists will be announced at a later date with each of them performing a few songs backed up by a formidable house band.

I don’t want to start any rumours, but it would be rather a good thing if David Gilmour turned up and did a couple of numbers too! It is quite close to his birthday on 6th March but he could give us all a treat instead! 😉

Watch New Roger Waters Music Video – The Child Will Fly

Roger Waters New Song 2014
Roger Waters New Song 2014

A new music video for Roger Waters The Child Will Fly has appeared on YouTube for Roger Waters fans to enjoy!

The two and a half minute song features contributions from Shakira and Eric Clapton and Gustavo Cerati (from Soda Stereo, one of the biggest groups in Argentina). It was written 6 years ago for the Fundacion Alas charity to raise money to help disadvantaged children.

What do you think of the song? Let us know on the forum (opens in new window).  I love the guitar solo towards the end.

After listening to the new Roger Waters song above (video 2014) feel free to watch a behind the scenes “making of” video to give context to the new Roger Waters song video… lets call that a music video!
