BRIT FLOYD THE ECLIPSE TOUR CAME TO THE LONDON PALLADIUM
Brit Floyd came to the London Palladium as part of their Eclipse Tour. Regarded as one of the best cover bands out there Brit Floyd pays homage to Pink Floyd by their deliverance of songs and show production. Bringing everything that makes Pink Floyd famous to this venue it was big enough to warrant the laser show and lighting effects and intimate enough to hear the note-perfect vocals and guitar riffs reverberate around the walls and through our ears.
It is the 45th Anniversary of “Dark Side of the Moon” which featured heavily here as well as songs from “The Wall”, “Wish you were here” and “Division Bell” with no complaints from the audience.
Gifting us a 24 song set in total we heard classics from the off. Starting with “Shine on you crazy diamond (parts 1-V)”, we soon sat up in our seats alert to the genius this band are, also to a fantastic saxophone solo by Ryan Saranich which left us in pure awe. Followed by “Arnold Layne”, “High Hopes” and the ever classic “Another Brick in the Wall” played beautifully and perfectly to our ears pleasure. A “Great Gig in the Sky” was another song which was delivered brilliantly and showcased this bands brilliance. The second half also bringing us “Speak To Me”, “Breathe”, Time” Many of these tracks are linked together effortlessly.
The stage production has become almost as detailed as the singers and musicians that complete this production and with the lighting, colours, lasers and theatrics used to create an immersive environment for the audience to participate in.
Every musician in the band and backing singers deliver effortlessly and it is easy to see why they are a leading tribute band who tour the world, recreating the spectacle of a real Pink Floyd concert we could almost be transported back to the 70’s and relive it for ourselves. Every member of the band plays their part all led by the Musical Director that is Damian Darlington.
Brit Floyd is a must-see band for any fan of Rock, let alone the Pink Floyd admirer.
