Pink Floyd leader David Gilmour joined Bombay Bicycle Club onstage Saturday, Dec. 13, for a rendition of “Wish You Were Here.” The singer was on hand to bid farewell to London’s Earls Court Arena, which is set to be demolished. Pink Floyd played the venue during its 1973 Dark Side of the Moon trek. Gilmour himself played at the arena multiple times over the years, Ultimate Classic Rock notes.

This man gave me my first guitar,” guitarist Jamie MacColl said before Gilmour came out onstage. “[He] was one of the first people to play this venue, and by my count has played here more than 27 times.”
