An incredible lineup of musicians … including Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Tom Jones, Bonnie Tyler and Pink Floyd drummer, Nick Mason … came together for a very special benefit show at London’s 02 Arena on Tuesday night (March 3rd) called ‘Music for the Marsden’, which raises money to fight cancer.

Highlights of the night included Van Morrison and Eric Clapton jamming on “Three Chords and the Truth” and “Does Love Conquer All,” Paul Carrack reuniting with his former Mike and the Mechanics bandmate Mike Rutherford for “Over My Shoulder” and “I Can’t Dance,” Bonnie Tyler bringing the Eighties back with her classic hit, “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Yusuf/Cat Stevens delivered a shining rendition of “Wild World” and Tom Jones got the whole room dancing with “Delilah.”

Near the end of the night, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason came out to play the group’s 1979 classic “Comfortably Numb”  Mason has spent the past year playing pre-Dark Side Of The Moon songs on the road with his new band Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, making this performance all the more special for how rarely he pulls out tracks from the band’s stadium days.
