Pink Floyd's David Gilmour is set to make an appearance at a "hidden" gig later this month, joining Mali musical pair Amadou and Mariam onstage in London. Gilmour will play at the pair's London show, set for May 25 and organised by homeless charity Crisis. The venue will be kept secret until the day before the show (May 24), when ticket-holders will be e-mailed or texted details. Money raised through the gig will go to aid the charity. In a statement Gilmour said: "It was a wonderful surprise when they [Amadou and Mariam] called recently, inviting me to collaborate with them on this special one-off occasion for Crisis. I'm looking forward to breaking down a few musical boundaries in the cause of helping the homeless." The show is part of a series of "hidden" gigs organised by the charity. Hot Chip played a show for Crisis on Tuesday (May 5), previewing material set for their fourth album. For more information head to Crisis.org.uk. Thanks for the report to Nme.com.
