Madrid, 22nd July 1988, Pink Floyd in concert.

After the concert the band had left the stage, to the tribute to the local missing: "Oh Madrid". Later that night, the band return to the stage, and they play songs that are not from the Pink Floyd back catalogue (I believe that they were rhythm & blues).

David Gilmour ascends to the stage with a borrowed guitar; he breaks the guitar strap. So, he finds a clothes line (the plastic covered ropes that one uses to hang clothes out to dry) that he ties onto the guitar to use as a substitute guitar strap. And it was caught on camera!

These three pictures were shown in a Spanish magazine called Popular 1 (issues from 1988 and 1994), and one of them shows Guy Pratt as well as David. Our thanks to Alberto for sending this over...
