Brit Floyd never ceases to amaze with incredible musical talent, showmanship and a stunning light show that showcases the music of Pink Floyd in a way that leaves little doubt as to why they’re endorsed by Pink Floyd as the “Ultimate Pink Floyd Tribute Band.”
Last night at the Fox Cities PAC in Appleton, Brit Floyd brought down the house with their new tour- “Immersion.” The nearly sold out venue was treated to an amazing new arrangement of Floyd tunes, this time around focusing a bit more on the post-Roger Waters years with great selections from “The Division Bell” and “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason” than in past years
The ensemble, directed and fronted by Damien Darlington roundly encapsulated the entirety of the Pink Floyd catalog going all the way back to opening track from Pink Floyd’s 1967 Debut album to open the second set, and flawlessly played pretty much every song you’d hope to hear at a Pink Floyd tribute.
Flying pigs, lasers and fog aside- there were stunning vocal performances from Ian Catrell on “Run Like Hell” and Angela Cervantes on “The Great Gig In The Sky” and simply jaw-dropping interpretations of the music of Pink Floyd all evening long.
Being my first visit to Fox Cities PAC- I was pleasantly taken aback by the beauty and acoustics of the venue- a perfect setting to take in this show, and I look forward to Brit Floyd’s return some time in the future. If you are a fan of Pink Floyd, you owe it to yourself to relive their music with Brit Floyd at least once. Having been fortunate enough to have seen Pink Floyd back in the late 80’s, and Brit Floyd in 2015, I can state unequivocally that this group of musicians have captured all that was a Pink Floyd live show, and deliver the goods consistently.
