Brit Floyd is Pink Floyd cover band formed in Liverpool in 2010 by producer Chas Cole and musical director of The Australian Pink Floyd Show Damian Darlington. Their live shows are celebrating the amazing musical legacy of Pink Floyd helping the band become "the world's greatest Pink Floyd show".

HistoryEdit

One of the band founders, Damian Darlington had previously played in The Australian Pink Floyd - the only Pink Floyd tribute band to play for a member of Pink Floyd; in 1996 they performed at David Gilmour's 50th birthday party alongside Rick Wright.

CMP Entertainment announced that from 2011 annual Pink Floyd tribute tour will feature 'Brit Floyd' rather than 'The Australian Pink Floyd Show'. Chas Cole, CMP's promoter said, "In recent years TAPFS tours have featured primarily British musicians and its come to the point where a British show is more appropriate. CMP doesn't want to stretch the goodwill of Pink Floyd or the fans and therefore, now is a good time to change."[1]

Everything else about this new Brit Floyd tour remained unchanged including the quality of the sound, lights and animation.
