Brit Floyd

Brit Floyd are the world’s greatest Pink Floyd tribute, currently touring the UK and Ireland as part of their extensive European Tour. So much for pigs fling over Battersea Power Station, that pig is indeed flying high over the delectable Symphony Hall in Birmingham tonight.

With a Pink Floyd reformation highly unlikely, and even less in such a small venue, Brit Floyd are as close as you will probably ever get to shining like crazy diamonds up close and personal. Catch-up with the show as it continues it’s tour through the UK.
