Just David Gilmour strolling the streets of Venice, hiring street musicians to join him on stage, no big deal.

 

Seriously. Here’s a clip of the Pink Floyd man and his wife from a few years back coming across an Italian street performer playing the wine glasses. Gilmour offers the performer a gig: “You play this for me, I’ll pay you.” The following night, there they are in St. Mark’s Square, in the pouring rain, playing “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.” Take a look.
