Roger Waters drafted in a very special guest at his second show at the United Centre in Chicago last night (23rd July).

At the culmination of the 23-song show, Pearl Jam frontman and local legend Eddie Vedder shared vocal duties with Roger on traditional set closer, Pink Floyd’s seminal 1979 classic ‘Comfortably Numb’.

Much to the delight of the 23,000 people in attendance, Eddie sang David Gilmour’s choruses on the track and even played guitar on its epic finale.

Of course, it’s not the first time Eddie and Roger have performed ‘Comfortably Numb’ together.

Almost five years ago at the 12-12-12 concert at Madison Square Garden benefiting the victims of Hurricane Sandy, Eddie joined Roger for the closing track on his seven-song set.

Other blockbuster names who performed on the night included The Rolling Stones, The Who, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney.
