During the very short break between the Chicago and Hollywood Bowl Dark Side of the Moon Shows, Dave made his way back to New York City with Roger Waters, Andy Fairweather-Low, Pat Arnold, Carol Kenyon, and Katie Kissoon for a short acoustic performance on behalf of the Millenium Promise and Malaria No More Benefit.
Dave, Roger, Andy and the girls entertained the enthusiastic crowd with intimate renditions of Wish You Were Here, Flickering Flame and Another Brick in the Wall.
The Fifteen hundred dollar a head dinner and show took place at Cipriani's on 42nd Street - a renowned NYC restaurant. The performers also included actress Ashley Judd, singer John Legend, and guitarist Raul Midon.
Millennium promise was formed by economist Jeffrey Sachs and philanthropist Ray Chambers. They want to end extreme poverty and hunger in the entire world by 2015. Roger Waters is a key supporter of the cause and has recently provided an interview with CNN on the charity.
