The Dark Side of Pink Floyd – Saturday 30th May 2020
The music of Pink Floyd has stood the test of time, millions of fans worldwide revere the bands entire 14 album discography. Even though the band no longer tour, there is a massive demand for their music to be heard and experienced in a live setting.
There are many Pink Floyd Tribute bands worldwide – a casual browse of the internet reveals more than 80 in the UK alone over the last 5 years. They come and go, form, reform, perform and dissolve, some achieve fleeting recognition and move on, few last more than a couple of years… most only focus on reproducing faithful renditions of the album versions of the Floyd classics… however, there is one notable exception…
Introducing: The Darkside of Pink Floyd – an established touring band dedicated to the accurate reproduction of the best Pink Floyd LIVE performances, ranging from the critically acclaimed Pulse Tour (1993) to awesome individual tracks such as ‘Echoes’ taken from David Gilmour’s 2006 “On an Island” tour and ‘Mother’ from Roger Waters “The Wall” tour of 2010/2011. Coupled with an amazing and atmospheric light and video show, be prepared for an unforgettable, emotional 2 ½ hour rollercoaster ride…
The core members of the band have been in place for eight years and, individually, have performing credits stretching back to the 1970s. They are, without exception, masters of their craft and combine to generate a sound which has been described with words such as ‘identical’, ‘awesome’ and ‘authentic’.
Universally acclaimed, The Darkside of Pink Floyd has attracted some amazing reviews and accolades including nominations for the Best Tribute Band in the SW for two years running. Here are some unsolicited quotes related to gigs and performances…
