BRIT FLOYD - DETROIT
The band was good but they missed the boat. Only 3 stars as they didn't play a lot of the great classics; many of the others they could have kept out ....Missing Shine on you crazy diamond, welcome to the machine, Us & Them, Hey You, Learning to fly.

AWESOME SHOW, BUT TOO LOUD FOR VENUE!!
Our 4th time seeing Brit Floyd live, this was the best show musically and visually but too loud. We like our music loud, but some people around us in the Balcony complained and a few as in previous shows on this tour left......

REALLY A LET DOWN
Pink Floyd recorded for about fifty years. They started out as a dance band. Their catalog is stuffed with articulate pieces of guitar, piano and all the sound effects that made them into one of the greatest rock bands in the world. Their songs were about life and astronomy.... It is truly a shame and practically an insult that the tribute bands basically only play the psycho babble of the Floyd's later years at a painful, near heart attack inducing threshold of sound and light. The video they use is appears to be designed to produce the greatest sadness of insanity, starvation and general hopelessness. Somehow they do not even play Astronomy Dominie, one of the signature contributions of Syd Barrett... and the really super pieces of blues...Atom Heart Mother, Cymbeline, Any Color You Like , pieces of Echoes... The young women who sing Great Gig in The Sky are the ones who save the concert and at least provide the ticket buyer with the feeling that their money was not wasted.

WE HAD FRONT ROW SEATS, AND LEFT DURING FIRST SONG
Not sure if it's the band or the sound engineer to blame, but Brit Floyd was WAY TOO LOUD for the Ralston Arena. I go to a lot of concerts each year (I often fly to other cities to do so) and I've never walked out on a show do to volume. It was ridiculous, and I was afraid of damaging my hearing. Very disappointing - the show was two days before my birthday and I had been looking forward to it for months.
