It is going to be The perfect rock show

Without an introduction the performance started with a sound og clarinet and a spot light, that changes dramaticly to a Rock Show which replicated the experience and magnificence of a live Pink Floyd show. Searchlights lit up the arena to the sound of a pounding drum beat and a brilliant guitar solo from Damian Darlington, lead guitarist and Musical Director. It was immediately evident that this was going to be superb evening.  The light show, moving lights and lasers all around the pavilion were sensational.  

Here we were listening to nine accomplished musicians playing music that we have loved over the last 40 or 50 years.  Playing not only classics from the featured album such as, In The Flesh, The Thin Ice and of course the title track part one and two, but tracks from Dark side of the Moon, such as The Great Gig in the Sky. To be honest this was one of the highlights of a very entertaining evening for which the talented female singer got a standing ovation.

I was a little concern, as I was accompanied by my son Joseph, he is 24 years, and he listens to Hard Rock/Metal, but he actually enjoyed the Rock Show - to be honest it could have been Pink Floyd playing. Nice, I am glad :-)

Off course I was so pleased to here timeless classics such as “Another Brick In The Wall” and “Mother”, the audience is transfixed throughout with stunning visuals which are perfectly sequenced in time to the music and a laser light show which is second only to Pink Floyd themselves.

Hailed as “The World's Greatest Pink Floyd Show” Brit Floyd kicked off the special 40th Anniversary retrospective performance of progressive rock group Pink Floyd's iconic rock opera, 'The Wall'. Released in November 1979, a semi-autobiographical concept album from the mind of Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters. The Wall remains one of the biggest selling albums of all time, and an important moment in Rock music history. As well as performing a host of musical highlights from The Wall.

The concert was taken place at the Danish TV DR Concert Hall, a briliant cubic concert hall in several levels, where guest are setting around the stage, for tonights show, a big setup with the traditional Pink Floyd The Wall setup, with out building the wall, complete with a stunning light show, large circle screen and arch, which portrayed the animated effects of past Pink Floyd characters and albums plus moving lights and lasers.

Pink Floyd the Wall, have always been in my heart from the very first time i heard the album, and was further more liked when the made there fantastic complicated film "Pink Floyd The Wall"

About the album The Wall - Pink Floyd
The Wall is the eleventh studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd, released 30 November 1979. It is a rock opera that explores Pink, a jaded rockstar whose eventual self-imposed isolation from society is symbolized by a wall. The album was a commercial success, topping the US charts for 15 weeks, and reaching number three in the UK. It initially received mixed reviews from critics, many of whom found it overblown and pretentious, but later came to be considered one of the greatest albums of all time.

Recording spanned from December 1978 to November 1979. Producer Bob Ezrin helped to refine the concept. The Wall is the last album to feature Pink Floyd as a quarter. 

Three singles were issued from the album: "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2" (the band's only US number-one single), "Run Like Hell", and "Comfortably Numb". From 1980 to 1981, Pink Floyd performed the full album on a tour that featured elaborate theatrical effects.

The Wall is one of the most well-known concept albums and was adapted into a 1982 feature film of the same name. The album has sold more than 24 million copies, is the second best-selling in the band's catalog, and is one of the best-selling of all time.

The Wall concept and storyline
The Wall is a rock soap opera that explores abandonment and isolation, symbolized by a wall. The songs create an approximate storyline of events in the life of the protagonist, Pink, a character based on Syd Barrett as well as Roger Waters (they co-founded the progressive rock band Pink Floyd) whose father was killed during WWII. Pink's father also dies in a war, which is where Pink starts to build a metaphorical wall around himself. 


There are lot's of fact's about this album, here are some of them:
1. The Wall is Pink Floyd’s second best selling album, after The Dark Side of the Moon, and one of the best selling albums of all time.
2. The album was made into a feature movie with the same name Pink Floyd The Wall.
3. Bass guitarist and songwriter Roger Waters thought of the album as a rock opera during Pink Floyd’s 1977 In the Flesh Tour. During the tour, his frustration with the audience became so bad that he spat on them.
4. When the complete album was played for a group of executives at Columbia’s headquarters in California, several were reportedly not impressed by what they heard.
5. During each performance of the band’s The Wall Tour, a 40 foot, or 12 meter, high wall of cardboard bricks was gradually built between the band and audience. Gaps allowed the spectators to view various scenes in the story as Scarfe’s animations were projected onto the completed parts of the wall.
6. Several characters from the story were shows as giant inflatables, such as a pig with a crossed hammers logo.
7. Scarfe was first hired to make a series of animations for The Wall. At his studio in London he hired 40 animators to make a series of nightmarish versions of the future, such as a dove of peace exploding to reveal an eagle, a schoolmaster and Pink’s mother.
8. Scarfe’s animations were also used for The Wall movie, accompanied by live concert footage.
9. In 1990, Waters and producer Tony Hollingsworth made The Wall – Live in Berlin, staged for charity at a site once occupied by part of the Berlin Wall.
10. From 2010 to 2013, Waters performed the album worldwide on his tour, The Wall Live. In this tour, the wall was much wider and had updated higher quality projected content with leading edge projection technology.
11. In 2016, Waters started adapting The Wall into an opera called Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera with contemporary classical composer Julien Bilodeau. The opera premiered at Opera de Montreal in March, 2017, and will be produced by Cincinnati Opera in the summer of 2018.
12. The opera is orchestrated for a score of 8 soloists, 48 chorus members and a standard 70 piece operatic orchestra.
13. During the first few tours, Wright performed as a salaried musician and was the only member of the band to profit from the tours, which lost about 400,000 pounds sterling.
14. Some of the album’s themes would be continued in the band’s next album called The Final Cut, which had some outtakes from The Wall.
15. By 1999, The Wall sold over 23 million RIAA certified units which made it the third highest certified album in the United States.
16. In 2003, Rolling Stones placed The Wall at 87 on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


About 3/4 through the concert, a theatrical element was to be far more prominent throughout the rest of the evening - Ian Cattell sitting in a mock hotel room singing and with spot lights flashing, lasers all around, you then realise, how much work has gone into this spectacular production. Classic tracks such as Wish You Were Here, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and One Of These Days followed - I was in heaven. Could it get any better?

Yes it could. I consider the best track on The Wall album to be Comfortably Numb and that guitar solo at the end played by Damien, I will remember for the rest of my days. The lighting on him playing was nothing short of brilliance. 

The technical side of this show is certainly outstanding.  The band left the stage to a standing ovation, with the audience wanting more. They returned to rapturous applause and finished up The Wall tribute in such a theatrical style it ruined the atmosphere they had worked so hard to achieve throughout the night. 

Overall, a fantastic evening where we were entertained by not only the nine musicians on stage but the whole technical and lighting team. The Brit Floyd show is widely regarded as the world's greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd and their show really is as close as fans will get to experiencing Pink Floyd songs at their best as they are transported through an articulate, emotional journey from Pink Floyd's progressive rock catalogue of work.

​These are all very talented people and I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to see this show.
