Roger Waters plays at private Huggy Bears concert Print E-mail

In an interview with former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters prior to the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, and noted in our report of the concert, Waters made mention of a possible appearance at a charity show this summer. The interview in the August edition of the Hampton Jitney Magazine had the following comments:

"Well, I may be doing a couple of songs with Don Henley, who is a pal of mine, at the Huggy Bear Benefit this summer."

Thanks to this morning's New York Post, we now know that the concert, a private affair, was held last night at Tony Forstmann's Cobb Road estate in the Hamptons.

The line-up for the show included Stevie Nicks, Don Henley, and Roger. As yet, we don't know what was played at the show.

Tony Forstmann is one of the Huggy Bears - this body of people began in 1985 as The Camp Huggy Bear Invitational Tennis and Jetski Extravaganza, and has become a major source of funds for children's charities. Contributions from the event dramatically impact many young lives. This week they have been holding what is supposedly the last of their grand Tennis tournaments, with the last matches today, and the concert must have provided a fitting event to draw the tournament to a close.

We are currently trying to get more detail of the event from the organisers, and as soon as we do, we will let you know.
