There's not much info about this private party. We have guessed the date and venue (Sloane's house?) from a Sunday Express article and the SAS Band news. Roger apparently sang a few songs and then joined Roger Daltrey in a "duet"; I'm not sure if it was With A Little Help From My Friends (the only song from the setlist we're sure about) or something else. Other guests included the Sugababes, Patti Russo or Jeff Scott Soto.
As the drumkit slid towards the front of the stage on its platform it caught Brian who fell into Roger's kit knocking over a cymbal, a mic and dislodging a couple of drums. Both Brian and Roger recovered quickly (with the help of a couple of cast members) to complete the song to great cheers and applauses. Once Bo Rhap was complete Brian told the enthusiastic audience: "It took us ages to rehearse that fall. I'm not sure if Roger's kit will ever be the same again." He then introduced Ben Elton who joked that Taylor was to blame: "That's what comes of wearing your sunglasses indoors." Ben also thanked the cast, band, crew and audience.

Roger launched his set with a duet with Patti Russo in Under Pressure. Then he introduced his son Rufus on drums and announced he'd sing something "really old" - Tenement Funster was a great surprise. After A Kind Of Magic Johnny Marter returned to his drumkit and Cosmos Rockin' (with two drummers and Roger on lead vocals!) followed. It was a unique performance that probably won't be repeated because the song didn't go very well (very simple drumming pattern, Jamie played a rhytm guitar and Roger had to read the words from a paper). WWRY followed (with Roger and his son in a drumming duet) and Roger finished his guest appearance with drumming in WATC.
