Guitarist David Gilmour wowed the Royal Albert Hall with a stunning 3 hour set - the perfect finale to our incredible week of shows.

The mesmerised audience enjoyed hits from Gilmour's solo albums including 'Rattle That Lock' and 'The Blue', as well as Pink Floyd favourites 'Time/Breathe reprise' and 'Comfortably Numb'. In a nod to the late music legend Prince, who died on Thursday, David Gilmour played the guitar solo to 'Purple Rain', while the iconic hall became bathed in purple light.

 

Prior to his performance, Gilmour visited the young people at our music workshop, hearing them perform 'Spreading Love and Joy' and 'Hope is the Key'. He then joined them backstage for a meet and great where he spoke about the first album he bought and what his teenage years had been like.

Never be afraid to trust your instincts.

He imparted to the group, before signing memorabilia and taking group photographs.

It was then time for the young people to enjoy an unforgettable moment on the Royal Albert Hall stage and for the final time of this year's shows the audience held up their phones as torches to light up the room in support of the group.
