David Gilmour & Benedict Cumberbatch - Comfortably Numb @ Royal Albert Hall 28th September 2016
Is there an end to this man's many talents! This video suggests NO...
This week at the Royal Albert Hall was always going to be a special one as Pink Floyd legend David Gilmour took to the legendary stage for a string of concerts.
But Pink Floyd fans got more than they bargained for during the encore of last night's concert!
None other than Mr Benedict Cumberbatch had been in the audience all night and was invited onto the stage at the end of the concert to perform classic song, 'Comfortably Numb' with the Pink Floyd legend.
But more than that, he sounded INCREDIBLE, and earned praise from many members of the audience and an excited David Gilmour who exclaimed 'Who knew he could sing!'.
I REPEAT. BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH JUST SANG AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL WITH DAVID GILMOUR— Julie Ciccarini (@julielondongirl) September 28, 2016

After a standing ovation, Benedict exited the stage pretty sharply but left a BIG impression on the 5,000 strong crowd.
