During a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London earlier this week, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour surprised fans with a special guest: Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Sherlock, The Imitation Game, and the upcoming Marvel title Doctor Strange.
But Cumberbatch wasn’t just there to hang out and enjoy the show. He was there to sing. After Gilmour began playing “Comfortably Numb,” the actor took the center stage spotlight to sing Roger Waters’ parts of the song.
You can see a video of Cumberbatch singing with Gilmour here below.
The show was part of a five-show stint at the Hall as part of Gilmour’s Rattle That Lock world tour to promote his latest solo album of the same name.
You can find more information on the new album below the video.
On Wednesday, September 28th 2016 David Gilmour performed Comfortably Numb and Benedict Cumberbatch joined him for the last song of the night.
