David Gilmour Does Surprise Performance Of Pink Floyd Classic

(hennemusic) David Gilmour performed the Pink Floyd classic, "Wish You Were Here", during a surprise appearance with the Bombay Bicycle Club at London's Earls Court on Saturday.

Gilmour first sat in with the band for a version of their tune, "Rinse Me Down", before firing up the Floyd classic. "This man gave me my first guitar," said guitarist Jamie MacColl as he introduced the evening's pecial guest, "and was one of the first people to play this venue and by my count has played here more than 27 times."

The Bombay Bicycle Club's show was the final concert at the famed London venue, which is set for demolition and redevelopment. "Last night at Earls Court we brought down the curtain on 12 months of touring," posted the band after the show.

"We have had the most amazing time this year and last night was no exception to this -- you guys make every show we play unforgettable. On top of that, being able to play Wish You Were Here with David Gilmour is also an experience that will last with us forever and we are eternally grateful to him for joining us to bring down the curtains on a venue that he has played so many times in his career."
