At a charity event Saturday in Oxfordshire, England, Pink Floyd legends Roger Waters and David Gilmour took to the stage before 200 guests to benefit the Hoping Foundation and raise funds for the Children of Gaza.

The duo performed four songs while backed by Guy Pratt (bass and acoustic guitar), Harry Waters (keyboards), Andy Newmark (drums), Chester Kamen (guitar), and Jonjo Grisdale (keyboards).

Reuniting for the first time since Live 8 in 2005, the performance began with a rendition of “To Know Him Is To Love Him" (written by Phil Spector), followed by “Wish You Were Here," “Comfortably Numb," and closing out with “Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)."

The auctions for the evening raised--350,000 for the charity. You can make a donation here.
