It has been announced that Roger Waters and Nick Mason will be participating in an upcoming show to benefit the UK's Countryside Alliance (CA).

The show, Highclere Rocks, is being held at the castle of the same name in the Berkshire countryside on Saturday, May 20th. It is being billed as a "picnic concert", running from 4pm until 11pm, and features The Band Du Lac - made up of Gary Brooker, Mike Rutherford, Andy Fairweather Low and Paul Carrack.

Roger and Nick are amongst the special guests at the show, alongside other musical luminaries such as Eric Clapton, Georgie Fame (who appears on David Gilmour's On An Island album), Roger Daltrey, and Roger Taylor. Tickets are now on sale for the concert, priced at £75. You can buy them through this link.

Many of you will recall that Roger last performed at a CA show back in 2002, at the Royal Albert Hall, where he premiered The Overture from Ca Ira. The Alliance are known to condone fox hunting, and a number of Roger's fans at the time of the show were unhappy about his participation.

However, Roger gave his own point of view at the time, supporting the work of the Alliance and also took part in one of their protest marches in London.

More information on the venue can be found at highclerecastle.co.uk.

Thanks to our friend Col for the head's up on this show.
