David Gilmour is to perform Pink Floyd's 'Atom Heart Mother' live this month - with a Pink Floyd covers band. The instrument suite from the prog legend's fifth album - and first UK Number One - is being performed as part of the Chelsea Festival at Cadogan Hall on June 14 and 15 by its co-composer Ron Geesin. The show will feature a 10-piece brass ensemble from The Royal College Of Music, cellist Caroline Dale, Canticum - a 40-strong chorus - and Italian Pink Floyd tribute band Mun Floyd. However Geesin has revealed today (June 2) that Pink Floyd guitarist Gilmour will take part in the second performance on June 15. 'The Atom Heart Mother Suite', is a six part instrumental that featured on side one of the band's album 'Atom Heart Mother'. Credits for the info to NME.com.

    The best thing that can ever happen for a cover band I must say. Hey, heres a thought... Velvet Revolver finds a dude that can sing GNR stuff better than Axl (not a hard task) and reunite without him =] Ok, that's just wishful thinking...

    Way to not point out that Ron Geesin is leading the band. Geesing helped write the song, and this is a Ron Geesin show...
