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 1/2 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’.
