Right out of the blue David and Roger did a performance together yesterday (Saturday 10 July) at the Hoping Foundation Benefit Evening in Kidlington in Oxfordshire, England!
Together with Guy Pratt (bass and acoustic guitar), Harry Waters (keyboards, Roger’s son), Andy Newmark (drums, Roxy Music), Chester Kamen (guitar, Bryan Ferry) and Jonjo Grisdale (keyboards) they performed Wish You Were Here, To Know Him Is To Love Him (Phil Spector), Comfortably Numb and Another Brick In the Wall (part 2).
David used his Gibson 1959 acoustic and the Black Strat. Polly’s pictures (posted on her site) reveals some details about David’s setup – the Alessandro Bluetic 20w head with a matching 2Ã—12 cabinet, Hiwatt SA212 combo, MXR Digital Delay II and a Conn Strobo tuner. It’s not know what pedal board David used but it’s fair to assume that he either used the 2006 Cornish board or the 1999 board (as seen with Al Green last week).
The charity event (“Hoping” stands for Hope and Optimism for Palestinians in the Next Generation) raised Â£350,000. The fact that they played together and the two Wall numbers surely adds fuel to the rumours (or rather wish) that David will join Roger at some point on the upcoming Wall tour.
