Darkside: The Pink Floyd Show – The Atkinson

9th May 2019

Darkside, The Pink Floyd Show, is a tribute to the music of Britain’s greatest progressive rock band. After 13 years of touring, playing at theatres across the UK, Darkside return to The Atkinson, Southport with the ‘You Gotta Be Crazy’ tour.

Seven musicians will deliver a show with empathy and passion playing tracks from Pink Floyd’s massive back-catalogue, from the early magical days of founder Syd Barrett through to later iconic albums, renowned for their complex structures, such as Dark Side of The Moon. The emphasis will be on replicating the experience of Pink Floyd live on stage which many believe was Floyd at their very best. Faye Brookes takes on the role of Clare Torry, who performed Great Gig in the Sky on the original 1973 Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon, recreating this unique enigmatic vocal with its extra-terrestrial soundscape which has been leaving audiences enthralled.

As would be expected, the show incorporates a spectacular and dramatic laser light show and evocative images and animated sequences projected on a circular screen, which were key features of Pink Floyd’s live performances.
