Concert-goers got more for their ticket price than expected after Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt made a surprise appearance at Hampton Court Palace Festival.

The original session bassist for the band took to the stage with tribute group the Australian Pink Floyd, who played at the palace last night.

He joined the tribute act for the hit Run like Hell, a song on which he would normally duet with David Gilmour.

Speaking on the night, he said: “The last time I played that song with David Gilmour was five years ago in 2006.

“I’m so pleased the Aussie Pink Floyd approached me to play with them tonight at Hampton Court. [It] brings back good memories.”

Hampton Court Palace Festival continues until June 18 and will see James Blunt, Simple Minds and Ringo Starr and his All-Starr band take to the stage.
