A fitting farewell for the iconic Earls Court venue in West London took place over the weekend, with Pink Floyd's David Gilmour making a surprise appearance.

Gilmour performed Wish You Were Here following a guest performance with Bombay Bicycle Club in which he played the lap steel guitar.

Guitarist James MacCool addressed the crowd:

This man gave me my first guitar and he was one of the first people to play this venue. By my count he’s played here more than 27 times.”

Earls Court, which boasts a 20,000 capacity, first opened in 1937 but is set to be demolished and redeveloped as “new villages and a high street,” according to Hammersmith And Fulham Council.
