Amadou and Mariam

A few weeks ago Amadou of Amadou & Mariam, was telling us about his admiration for and desire to collaborate with Pink Floyd's legendary frontman, David Gilmour (read the interview when you've got a minute)… Well, this will materialise very shortly, as The Blind Couple of Mali (A &M's pet name) and Gilmour will perform together, as part of the Crisis Hidden Gigs series, on May 25th.

Expectedly, the location will remain secret until 24-hours prior to the show and all ticket holders will be notified accordingly, but all we can say for now is that this will take place in "an intimate converted church in central London"- let's try and guess: St Giles in Covent Garden or maybe the Union Chapel in Angel?... Oh, well, let's just wait…

Tickets cost £25.00 or £75.00 (with VIP upgrade) + booking fee, and are on sale now, with all proceeds going to Crisis (
