Not untilinside did it become apparent that this was not the CD but being played live onthe stage! The band was The Darkside of Pink Floyd, and they were stunning, deliveringa cultured, authentic and beautifully produced set of Floyd classics to apacked and enthusiastic audience that just kept growing throughout theperformance as people young and old were drawn to the large stage. Highlight ofa great show . . . it's tough to pick one out, but if pressed then theemotionally crushing solo work from Comfortably Numb was the standout momentfor me and a lot of others going by the audience reaction. You will have totravel a long way to see a better Floyd Tribute”.
