Video: Roger Waters & David Gilmour Four-Song Benefit Performance

The WallHere's something we never thought would surface but, all of a sudden, there it was on Vimeo.  This is the Hoping Foundation benefit performance from last month by Roger Waters and David Gilmour.  While it was shot deep in the crowd or from the back of the room, there is a bit of legitimacy to the posting as it was "filmed" by Gilmour's wife Polly Samson and was posted by the Hoping Foundation.

The set included a cover of the Teddy Bears' To Know Him is To Love Him, Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and Another Brick in the Wall.

Update 8/18/10: There has been quite a bit of controversy over the inclusion of information for the Hoping Foundation and what they represent at the front of this video.  Vintage Vinyl News does not endorse this or any other organization who may advertise or include messages in their videos; however, we reserve the right to pass these videos along to our readers when they include significant information or performances by veteran music artist.

This four-song benefit performance is literally ruined by the false pretenses of its sponsor, the Hoping Foundation. Upon clicking on the video link for the above, one is subsequently proselytized into adopting support for young Palestinian refugees. This Hoping Foundation has sponsored this four-song performance under the auspices of blatant propaganda which distorts history and reality. The Israelis' are not responsible for the plight of Palestinians' world-wide. 7 Arab countries surrounding the small state of Israel have tried on countless occasions to wipe out the Jewish state and are still bent on its ultimate destruction through any means at their disposal. Several scores of artists recently have foolishly embraced the cult-like mantra of the Palestinians' plight - Santana, Elvis Costello and The Pixies to name but a few. Other artists such as Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, Elton John and Paul McCartney have wisely chosen to not succumb to the brainwashing of organizations such as Hoping Foundation. There is no place amongst music lovers for repulsive double speak from sponsors of murder and terror. Waters & Gilmour ought to get their facts straight or stay on the dark side of the moon...
