BRIT FLOYD DOES NOT DISAPPOINT
As expected Brit Floyd again was flawless. The new light show mesmerizing . These musicians are all at the top of their game. Great gig in the Sky was sung to perfection. A must see show start to finish.

BRIT FLOYD - IMMERSION '17... & CONTINUUM OF PINK!
Wow! we saw PBS & thought they'd be 'Good Live', but had No idea just how Good! Decided 2 'Do-It-Right' & went VIP... gifts@door/'Sound Check'/Meet & Greet Band/ Best Seats! Sound check= 2 songs not in the show (nice Bonus), then as they exited most of them shook our hands & introduced themselves. We got 2 meet nearly every single 1 of them, talked w/more than 1/2 for over 5+mins each & Angela C. even dedicated her solo of 'Great Gig In The Sky' to my girlfriend! They were All very down 2 earth, unpretentious & genuine... Ian C. took extra time 2 bring most of them back over 2 sign our T-shirts. The song choice list was like extended 'Greatest Hits' encompassing nearly any song that you wanted to hear + a few more obscure cuts that showed their True Passion 4 Pink & their Performances/Vocals/Vids/Lite Show were 'Top Shelf'! My hands hurt 4 hrs, 1of my top 3 concerts & I've seen Clapton/Stones/The Boss/SRV/Zepplin/etc Ryan was awesome on Sax/Brass/Keyboards & he's a Packer fan! WOW!
Diane K. from Ottawa, Ontario
WAY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!
I thought this would be a good light show, but who could ever come anywhere close to the magic of Pink Floyd?????? Well...Brit Floyd can! It was like listening to the vinyl albums in the seventies! Excellent sound, amazing visuals, poignant videos....I can't say enough about how you were transported back to the seventies. Memories of that golden era having been flooding my mind ever since the show. Not only would I recommend this show to friends of the seventies (50+), but many people I have talked about how amazing this production was, really regret missing it. I would return to see Brit Floyd anytime they come to Ottawa! Hurry back !!!!!
Johny V from Toronto, Ontario
If you're by chance reading this..?.. You're in for an exelent show excellent.!!!... Its begins great and then just builds on it from there..
Dew from Okemos, Michigan
BRIT FLOYD AWESOME SHOW
Brit Floyd put on an incredible show last night! The music was great with an equally good light show. Highly recommended, will be there for their next show in the area.

GREAT SHOW AT ARTPARK, LEWISTON NY
A FULL LENGTH CONCERT WITH 25 SONGS AT A GREAT VENUE. BRIT FLOYD WAS AT THEIR BEST. WHAT A SHOW!!!! AS FOR THE TWO GUYS BEHIND US ATTEMPTING TO TALK OVER A FULL STACK OF SPEAKERS BLASTING OUT GREAT PINK FLOYD MUSIC, WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY, YOU TWO ARE IDIOTS. BUT THAT IS WHAT MAKES ARTPARK A GREAT VENUE. WE MOVED TO ANOTHER SPOT AND STILL HAD A GREAT VIEW AND ENJOYED GREAT MUSIC. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE BRIT FLOYD AGAIN!!!
JR Picha from Lakeland, Minnesota
This was my 5th time seeing Brit Floyd, each show taking place at a different venue. With that said, I believe my take on them is SOLID, seeing as venues can significantly affect one's perception of x, y, and z. Ultimately, this band ALWAYS brings it! Their setlist was once again varied, which is very refreshing for those who tend to see them year after year. I've seen MANY tribute/cover bands over the years, and honestly, BF is BY FAR AND AWAY the BEST I've personally experienced, hands down! Pink Floyd's music/experience is not one to be taken lightly, as it's one of the most difficult to nail, yet BF does it each and every time!! I WILL be going to see them for a 6th time, and am looking forward to that show just as much as ANY other! ENJOY!!
J. Randall Gargan from Anaheim, California
While driving over to my house for the Rodger Waters concert June 20th 2018 my Girl Friend was nearly killed when a distracted driver driving a Ram truck ran a red light and T boned her at nearly 45 mpg. Well after 8 days in intensive care and still months on the mends we saw the PBS Brit Floyd special. Needless to say she fell into tears because she felt so bad and wanted to make my B-Day a special one. The good PBS seats were sold out so I bought 5th row from the Greek Theater vendor. Note for Note an amazing show. The Brit Floyd Band and Vocals did not miss a beat! Sign us up for Brit Floyd's next Gig. After such an amazing performance we are now big fans. My Girlfriend is still recovering but, the Fantastic Show lifted her spirits up to the Dark Side of the Moon! Thank you Brit Floyd.
Joshua from San Diego, California
A MUST FOR ANY PINK FLOYD FAN.
Great for all audiences, guarantee a great time there
Ryan from Atlanta, Georgia
My group has seen them 5 times in Atlanta and we flew to Red Rocks three weeks ago to see them as well. Last nights show in the Fox was fantastic. Pink Floyd fan for 35 years and these guys just do it right. Thank you to the Fox and Brit Floyd for bringing this show to Atlanta. Will see you again next year. They added Sorrow to this years set list and it was amazing.

BRIT FLOYD ECLIPSE TOUR PEA BODY OPERA HOUSE
SEEN BRIT FLOYD 5 TIMES. THIS WAS THEIR BEST PERFORMANCE. SEEN OTHER REVIEWS THAT VOLUME WAS AN ISSUE. THEY FIXED IT. SOUNDED GREAT, LOUD AND CLEAR. LIGHT SHOW WAS FABULOUS. HAD MORE LASERS AND BRIGHTER LIGHTS. MAY BE LED? SAW THEM IN ST LOUIS AT THE PEA BODY OPERA HOUSE. NOT A BAD SEAT IN THE HOUSE AND SOUND IS VERY GOOD THERE.
from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
BETTER THAN THE COUNTY STADIUM PERFOMANCES BY PINK FLOYD
FANTASTIC SHOW AND THE ACOUSTICS IN THE RIVERSIDE BLEW AWAY THE DISTORTION OF THE TWO COUNTY STADIUM CONCERTS PERFORMED IN THE MID 1970'S AND 1980S BY PINK FLOYD. IF YOU HAVE NOT WITNESSED THIS TRIBUTE SHOW, YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE MISSING! BRAVO!
Ed Sinclair from Cincinnati, Ohio
I've seen the real deal 5 times, Waters 3 times and Gilmour once. These guys did a wonderful show. I'm going to see them the 11th of May in Dayton area it was so good. All the instrumental and vocal solos were right on!! Kudos to the great gig in the sky sol, she nailed the Clare Torry solo very well. Brought back old memories from all the Cleveland, OH shows I saw in the past. Rock on and keep it alive!
Dave from Lexington, Kentucky
BRIT FLOYD AWESOME!!
Third time to see the band,and they exceeded my expectations.i loved everything about the show....the music the lights the video my seat.They really do pay tribute to one of the greatest bands ever.I look forward to seeing them again.I would highly recommend this show to anyone with a love for rock and roll. A total audio visual experience you will not soon forget
Lee Wiggy from New York, New York
BETTER THAN PINK FLOYD
Wow, what a great show.. The show from start to finish was fantastic. The music, light show, presence of the band stood up to the fantastic songs that Pink Floyd has written during the band's existence. The show covered songs from the beginning of the band's history and later on after Waters departure. Brit Floyd covers two songs from Water's solo album the Final Cut. The band played for about two hours performing about 25 songs. I cannot wait until the band tours again in the states so I can see them again. Fantastic show and highly recommended for any Pink Floyd fan.
JD from Syracuse, New York
BRIT FLOYD IS AN A++ TRIBUTE BAND
Just a fantastic job. If you are a Pink Floyd fan (or not) you will be very happy with Brit Floyd. Thanks for keeping Pink Floyd's music alive!!
Chuck from Chicago, Illinois
BRIT FLOYD. !! YES!!
Show was great, brought back memories of good times. Almost like the real thing and plenty of songs in the show. Only issue was the idiots behind us , couple girls in their 20's yelling at each other trying to talk. Very rude. Plus guy in front of me gave me the finger thought I was yelling him sit down during last couple songs, was guy behind me! Anyway idiots aside, really good show.
Rosemary DeCampus from Orlando, Florida
Have been to several Pink Floyd shows in 80'S and 90's. Their show was so good it was like being at one of the originals. At least it satisfied my craving for a live Pink Floyd show so I think that's the best compliment I can give.
Cindy from Toronto, Ontario
PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR MIND BLOWN!
Saw Brit Floyd April 4/19 in Hamilton and we were blown away by the entire experience! They even included a couple of tracks from Animals, which almost never gets played in concerts. WE LOVED IT. The light show was out of this world, the visuals were mesmerizing, and the quality of the music was superlative. Do yourself a favour if you like PF, and see this show. Unbelievable.
Tones from Toronto, Ontario
BLOWN AWAY !
Shut your eyes and you are listening to the real thing. Amazing artists.. Musicians, singers, choreography. I imagined I was listening to the vinyl version of Pink Floyd.. exceptional detail, great vocals and back-up singers were some of the best I have ever heard. Music artistry at its fi ext. Congrats to the ensemble for a memorable. evening. Thank you Brit Floyd.
Tom from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
BRITT FLOYD MILWAUKE 4/20/2019
Amazing show. I have seen Roger Waters and David Gilmore and enjoyed those show as well but Britt Floyd is one of a kind. Ian and the band do an amazing job of representing Pink Floyd in the truest sense and also adding their own touch in a very special way. I have share with many and will with many more, this is a can't miss band and one of the best you will ever see!
Jimmy jaudon from Savannah Georgia
I was completely blown away at how good they were if you didn't know better you'd swear this was Pink Floyd playing even the vocals on great gig in the sky were perfect I wasn't expecting much but I'm glad I went overwhelming don't miss them if you get the chance
Philip from Atlanta, Georgia
Brit Floyd is an experience from which you'll walk away and say, "that was incredible!" I never miss them when they come to town and their show never disappoints.
Phil Pierce from Huntsville, Alabama
Was much more than expected. Was the best concert i have ever been to.. Would highly recommend and the concert hall was absolutely FANTASTIC. Can't wait to see them again
Jon L from Vancouver, British Columbia
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.
David Magee from Pottstown, PA
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.
Scott Dallas from Baltimore, Maryland
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 !!
from Chicago, Illinois
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!!!
Greg from Toronto, Ontario
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.
Gerry from Spokane, Washington
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!).
Kiwi from Toledo, Ohio
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 !
Jo Jo from Detroit, Michigan
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.
Nick from Vancouver, British Columbia
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......
Alexander Thiele from Houston, Texas
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.
James F from Omaha, Nebraska
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.
