on October 17, 2015, 2:15pm

Next year, Roger Waters intends to embark on a world tour in support of an upcoming solo album. Last night, the former Pink Floyd member got a chance to keep his chops in check, headlining the Music Heals benefit concert in Washington, DC.

The evening featured many notable moments, perhaps none bigger than when Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello joined Waters to perform a handful of Pink Floyd classics, including “Comfortably Numb” and “Brain Damage/Eclipse”, as well as a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”. Watch fan-shot footage below.

Elsewhere in the set, Waters delivered the first-ever live performance of Pink Floyd’s “When the Tigers Broke Free”, along with covers of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ghost of Thom Joad”, Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me”, and Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”.

The concert raised proceeds for MusiCorps, a non-profit organization that supports injured soldiers and their families. During the performance, Waters was also accompanied by members of the MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band and Tim Conley, an injured Marine who lost his both legs in Afghanistan, and who has since embarked on a career in music.
