CLEARWATER — Brit Floyd will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s iconic rock opera “The Wall” Tuesday, June 18, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.
Taking to the road with their most ambitious and biggest production yet, Brit Floyd, the world’s greatest Pink Floyd tribute show, focuses on the 1979 album “The Wall,” a rock opera that centers on Pink, a burned-out rock star whose intensifying self-imposed isolation from society is symbolized by a wall. The semi-autobiographical concept album from the mind of Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters remains one of the biggest selling albums of all time, and a major moment in rock music history.
As well as performing highlights from “The Wall,” the new Brit Floyd production will include songs from several of Pink Floyd’s classic albums, such as “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Animals” and “The Division Bell.”
Brit Floyd has truly become a phenomenon. Widely regarded as the world's greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd, the band gained notoriety with its faithful recreation of the scale and pomp of the final 1994 Division Bell Tour, complete with a stunning multi-million dollar light show, large circular screen and arch plus projection, lasers, inflatables and theatrics. A Brit Floyd show really is as close as fans will get to experiencing the magnificence of the original Pink Floyd live shows.
