BETTER SOUND AND LIGHT THAN THE EIGHTIES
Excellent all round performance. Why would someone in the front row in another review leave . How did they get a front row seat. Plus Floyd music is all about hating privileged pricks.

VERY GOOD SHOW
We saw the show up in Bethlehem and they rocked it, LOUD. They played the usual mix of Dark Side, Wish You Were Here and The Wall along with stuff we didn't know from Division Bell. With a 2.5 hour show they missed the early stuff, See Emily Play and Free Four plus what about Learning to Fly or On The Turning Away? As for what they did play, very well done, excellent lighting and great sound. And the young lady that sang The Great Gig In The Sky got both standing ovations, 1 when she sang it and 1 when they introduced her to us. Her performance was very powerful and spot on. I've seen both Roger Waters and David Gilmore in concert and this show is close, real close to the real thing. Will I go see them again, NO, I've got other bands to see before my "80 years with luck or even less" come to an end. Will I recommend a friend see it, YES. Word of warning, take ear plugs, they're really loud.

BRIT FLOYD- LYRIC THEATER- BALTIMORE 4-26-2018
I loved our seats for the Brit Floyd tribute show. Front of balcony gave us clear view of the band and excellent angle for the outstanding light show. The band quality was consistently fantastic and featured multiple virtuoso leads on sax, guitars and keys. Vocals were clear and true to the original- loved the girls singing backup, especially their feature songs (I'd have loved to hear "great Gig In the Sky"). BRAVO !!

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BUT LACKING ADEQUATE VOLUME!
Did the landlord limit the volume allowed for the concert? The entire concert was played at about a 5 out of 10 on the volume-scale with many people shouting "turn it up" throughout the evening. With music of this type and quality, it was really frustrating listening to the whole thing as if my parents were entertaining in the living room! The level of volume was really disappointing and the only reason this is a 4-star rating and not a 5-star. This was my second time seeing Brit Floyd and their performance again met all my expectations! The guitar riffs, the singing and the back-up vocals exceeded my expectations. The evening's best was a riveting rendition of Great Gig in the Sky where their back-up, female vocalist brought-down the house in a bone- chilling and breathtaking display - hitting each and every note on the money! It rivaled the original score and left the place in awe and earned a roaring standing ovation! Other popular scores were great too! Fix the volume!!!

Lights production sound top rated. Act 1 voluume was not adequate, Act 2 much louder. Much more Wall in this show as 40 yr tribute. Missed Money,but these guys are all top noch. Must see if you can.

BRIT FLOYD AT THE PARAMOUNT JULY 2018
As always, Damian Darlington and all the band that make up Brit Floyd did a phenomenal job in performing awesome music, presenting the light show, and delivering a very worthy tribute to Pink Floyd and keeping their music very much alive. Once again, The Great Gig in the Sky brought the house down. However, I thought the acoustics were very poor. Too quiet for the first few songs, then over-amped as the show continued. The drums were too loud, drowning out the great guitar work and vocals. Must have been only a cursory sound check before the show. Very poor definition and imaging, and even some distortion. Please do better next time (I will be there!).

NOT LOUD ENOUGH !
Fourth time seeing this amazing band in Toledo, but this show lacked the dynamic punch the previous shows had in abundance. Better lights and a couple songs i hadnt heard before, but that spinetingling feeling driven by in-your-chest impact just wasnt there. Damiens guitar is still one of the best, Ians bass guitar is still loose, slow and boomy. Good "great gig in the sky" but Emily Jolands does it best, and i was really looking forward to hearing her again. Dynamic punch plays a big hand in how this vocal is perceived and this one missed because it was not loud enough. Everyone around me was yelling "Turn it up !" all night. The Stage was moved to the halfway point in the Huntington arena, and there were still empty seats, so maybe Toledo is turning into tone of their smaller venues. Understandable if everyones heart was not quite into it ! To me this was about 70% of the best Brit Floyd can be !
