Well some rumours were (W)right! Rick Wright was there for all three nights, although having seen him on the R2 broadcast a few weeks ago that was no surprise really. However the first night was a real surprise with David Bowie on Arnold Layne. Mica Paris appeared for the next 2 nights for a \’not my cup of tea\’ version of The Great Gig in the Sky.
But, cue drum roll, the best bit was Nick Mason appearing for Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb on the final night. Well worth getting home at 2am for! Sadly Kate Bush did not appear, despite many expectations that she would. Another time eh?
Overall – the new album finally grew on me by night 3 (I\’d not been a big fan so far), and I was disappointed by the complete absence of any material from the earlier Gilmour solo efforts. We deserved Mihalis at least!
