I have been a fan of Pink Floyd since back in the day but never had the chance to experience them in person.  I firmly believe that after hearing Brit Floyd perform at Comerica Theater on June 30, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona I now know what it was like to be at Pink Floyd concert in person.

The sound that Brit Floyd produces is nothing short of authentic.  I base this on years of listening to Pink Floyd albums.  The musicians are amazing and are able to channel the sound and vibe that Pink Floyd produced when they were still together.  The world is a better place having Brit Floyd touring and reproducing Pink Floyd’s incredible catalog of music, theatrics and light show.

The enthusiastic and yes, somewhat older sold out crowd was treated to a great set list that opened with “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and worked its way through (among others) “Another Brick in the Wall” Part 2, “Mother”, “Money”, “Breathe”, “Wish You Were Here”, “The Final Cut” and an amazing  rendition of “Comfortably Numb” that brought the crowd to their feet for one of many well deserved standing ovations throughout the night.  The encores included “Brain Damage”, “Eclipse” and “Run Like  Hell”.  A particular crowd favorite was “Great Gig in the Sky” with an outstanding solo performed by a very talented Eva Avita.
