Comfortably Numb (with David Gilmour)

Live at the O2, London; May 12, 2011.

Johnny Penwarden reported on

On Thursday (May 12, 2011), David Gilmour joined Roger Waters on stage for a performance of Comfortably Numb. Making good on a promise made by Gilmour, the former bandmates were reunited to honour Waters’ involvement in last year’s Hoping Foundation gig, when the pair were reunited for a performance of To Know Him Is To Love Him. Almost 30 years since the last performance of The Wall in London, seeing Roger Waters and David Gilmour together again on stage is no doubt the highlight of The Wall Live Tour’s O2 Arena shows…

A video clip of Comfortably Numb featuring Waters and Gilmour was shared on the internet. This audio track has been extracted from the video clip. Thanks to anonymous for sharing the video clip.

  2. OMG. Big O, you score _big time_ on this one. Knew it was happening this week, but didn’t expect a video leak on the ‘net so soon, not to mention that you would jump on it and post the audio. You must be HUGE PF fans. Many many thanks for giving us folks NOT on the tour route (no dates announced for Asia, AFAIK) to experience this historic momont.

  5. When I heard the crowd roar as they realized the momentous occasion of the Waters/Gilmour reunion, I got goose bumps. Thanks for all of the great posts. “Big Ups” to the Big-O!!!

  8. Great and timely post. Caught the show last November in PHX. Very entertaining evening out despite US Airways Center acoustics and greedy ticket prices (especially for an avowed socialist). Staging was magnificent, among the best I have ever seen and a long way from 1980! Looking forward to the BluRay sure to follow this Xmas.

  9. Support Waters supporting Hoping Foundation? I don’t think so. More anti-Israel rhetoric. Sometimes you have to draw the line on these “heroes”.

  10. I respect Roger Waters for his stance over Israel. One of very few with the guts to make a stand over an important issue. I am no great fan of Pink Floyd’s later solo member’s efforts, but this is actually good.

    Way to go with the bigotry, bro’. Check the website and tell me how much anti-Israel rhetoric you see. But I forget… you are very likely a blinkered Zionist who is unable to see reason or thank well of anyone who does not blindly support the Israeli State and all it does.

    Subbed down to its bare essentials, “HOPING stands for Hope and Optimism for Palestinians in the Next Generation … Young Palestinian[s] need the simple chances [and] possibilities that can offer them creative solutions to their lives … giving them belief in … a better future…
    “… we provide grants to community associations working with young people … particularly through [youth centres] at the heart of the camp communities. The projects … give these children the opportunity to play … learn … express themselves through art, photography, film, music, theatre, dance and sport.”

    Blinkered people on BOTH sides of the divide perpetuate the misery, anger and circle of anger and retaliation that blights greater Palestine.

    Sorry BigO - Someone had to respond. Delete his comment and mine together and I’ll be ok with that.

  12. jon–its funny that u say youre not a fan of floyd memmbers later solo efforts and say that this is actually good referring to this track. i dont know how to respond to that. im sure im not telling u anything u dont already know here. the song while it is a solo members effort originally is one of the only two songs on the album that was cocreated with the other member who happens to be appearing with him on this particular show during this particular song ironically. how incredible it would have been if david would have also joined roger for run like hell as well during this show. sigh. but for u to say this is actually good when roger is doing the wall… when it is not exactly a solo effort..altho it kinda really was a solo effort with the other members involvement. they had a choice between this and pros and cons of hitchhiking. they chose wisely. wall was to be a 3 lp set and it was whittled down to 2 lps. the remainder became final cut essentially with some extras added to it to fill it out to a full album. try and get david and rick to sign copies of final cut and u would have had a miserable time of it. nick was willing. im willing to bet there are probably less than 20 copies of it out there on earth signed by rick if even 5. its essentially a solo album as well.
    but to call this tour of rogers a solo effort even tho he is really the only member of floyd performing on it…is kinda not too accurate even tho it was almost a solo effort that created the original concept too. minus two songs as i mentioned. and sure the 4 of them all performed on the album and the tour in 80-81. i am the only human not paid to see them who saw all the usa shows and 3 england shows. yeah im bragging. i dont have much to brag about.. let me brag. heh.
    this performance isnt even close to being one of the best comfy numbs they ever did together but its nice. not sure why but davids solo show fm’d from bethlehem pa in 85 allentown fairgrounds is probably one of the best i ever heard him do. sound is superb of course and it just hits every damned note right on the money. find it for this one song if nothing else. and even tho i believe its doctored up the version on pulse is mind numbingly incredible. course i thought that too from delicate sound of thunder. and im a waters die hard. u couldnt get me to listen to the post waters floyd cds. i hate them.
    i have a feeling i didnt make my point. sorry. nevermind. peace. lol
