One of the great tragedies of classic rock — at least to Pink Floyd fans — has been the inability of Roger Waters and David Gilmour to make nice. But you’ve got to respect the depth of Pink Floyd’s dysfunction. After all, even Pink Floyd tribute bands can’t stay together.
For the first time, the Brit Floyd will perform in Idaho: 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at the Eagle River Pavilion — where nearly 3,000 fans turned out to see the Aussie Floyd end the concert season there in 2010. I’m notoriously hard on tribute bands, but that was a hell of a spectacular night: The lights. The music. The stars in the sky. Mesmerizing.
Something tells me the Brit Floyd will be another mind-blowing experience for Floyd fans.
Tickets go on sale May 11 at Ticketfly for $19.50 lawn, $39.50 reserved seat, $59.50 VIP.
How does the Brit Floyd match up with the Aussie version? Check out the video below. One cool nugget for diehard fans about this tour: The hit-packed set is supposed to include a 23-minute rendition of “Echoes” from Floyd’s 1971 album “Meddle.”
