Legendary Pink Floyd front man David Gilmour is to headline a “hidden gig” in London this month to raise money for charity.

The concert is part of a series of gigs raising money for homeless charity Crisis, with bands such as Hot Chip playing concerts with a difference – the details of the gigs are withheld until the last minute to draw similarities to the situation faced by many homeless people on a daily basis regarding accommodation.

Gilmour will perform at a mystery venue on 24 May alongside Afro-blues act Amadou & Mariam.

“It was a wonderful surprise when they [Amadou and Mariam] called recently, inviting me to collaborate with them on this special one-off occasion for Crisis,” said Gilmour, who is a long-time supporter of the charity. “I’m looking forward to breaking down a few musical boundaries in the cause of helping the homeless.”

Gilmour sold his London home for £3.6m in 2003 and donated the cash to Crisis. He also planned to create flats for the homeless using his own property, and has sold several items at auction to benefit the charity.

More info about the Crisis hidden gigs can be found at the charity’s official website.
