Last night, David Gilmour made his scheduled guest appearance at Richard Thompson's 70th birthday concert, held at London's Royal Albert Hall. Held in front of a sell-out audience, in thrall to the variety of musicians who joined together in wishing Richard a great day, the show was a 34-song mix of Richard's material, Fairport Convention songs, and the odd cover version (more often than not, originally performed by the guest themselves in earlier days).

David's segment came at the end of the second half, and saw him perform a superb Dimming Of The Day, followed by Fat Old Sun (see below). The encore which followed - Meet On The Ledge, a Fairport song - included what appeared to be all the guests, including David. A memorable night was had by all!

Here's a taste of last night:
