David Gilmour to perform at charity event
Musicians will gather to mark 50th anniversary of Fender guitar

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour will perform at a charity event to mark the 50th anniversary of the Fender guitar. The concert is scheduled for Sept. 24 at Wembley Arena, England.

Gilmour is one of many big names scheduled to perform. Other acts include Joe Walsh, Johnny Marr (Smiths), Mike Rutherford (Genesis, Mike & The Mechanics), Paul Carrick (Mike & The Mechanics), Paul Rodgers (Free), and Hank Marvin (The Shadows).

The event will benefit Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy UK in London. The organization, which uses music to help disabled children, was also the beneficiary of the 1990 Knebworth concert that Floyd participated in.

Gilmour owns the first Fender Stratocaster ever built. It is believed to be worth $1.82 million.
