Brit Floyd are on their Discovery 2014 North American Tour where they played at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario on April 7th. They performed a stunning three-hour chronological journey spanning the entire recording career of Pink Floyd from 1967 – 1994.
Brit Floyd have performed to over one million fans around the world since their first show in Liverpool, England in January 2011. Fans have called it “Blindingly brilliant, jaw-droppingly authentic… at last Pink Floyd have the tribute show they deserve”.
The band is comprised of Damian Darlington (musical director, guitar, vocals), Rob Stringer (keyboards & vocals), Ian Cattell (bass guitar, vocals), Bobby Harrison (guitar & vocals), Carl Brunsdon (saxophones, percussion, bass guitar), Arran Ahmun (drums), Thomas Ashbrook (keyboards, vocals), Ola Bienkowska (backing vocals), Angela Cervantes (backing vocals), Emily Jollands (backing vocals), Jacquie Williams (backing vocals), Gareth Darlington (sound designer & front of house engineer) and Bryan Kolupski (media director of animation, video).
Named after Pink Floydâ€™s recent box set of the same name, and featuring music from the Syd Barrett led ’60s psychedelic pop of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, through to the nineties The Division Bell, and everything in between, the brand new DISCOVERY show capture’s in note-for-note detail, all your favorite moments as well as a few lesser known gems, from one of the most outstanding and enduring back catalogues in the history of recorded music.
Featuring the trademark Pink Floyd arch and circle light show, Brit Floydâ€™s musical performance is also accompanied by amazing original video and brand new animation, which is inspired by the brilliant artwork designs of longtime Pink Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson.
With painstaking attention to detail, replicating every nuance of every Floydian moment both musically and visually, the band’s execution of all Pink Floyd’s greatest works make each familiar track sound fresh and pristine.
