Have you ever wished you were able to see Pink Floyd in concert?

You can hear the music of Pink Floyd, complete with light show, at the Brit Floyd shows.They’re returning to Red Rocks, here’s Grateful Mike’s talk with their guitarist.

On Thursday, June 9, Brit Floyd will return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre for their fifth time and you’ll get to watch Damian Darlington shredding up his guitar on ‘Comfortably Numb.’ Grateful Mike had a chance to talk with Darlington about his career playing Pink Floyd music and how international the make up of their band is.

One of the highlights of Damian’s career was playing at David Gilmour’s 50th birthday party alongside keyboardist Rick Wright of Pink Floyd.

We asked who gets to sing ‘The Great Gig in the Sky’ each night? Damian told us, just like in Pink Floyd, the vocalists trade off singing the improvised vocals each show so that each of them has a chance to show off what they can do.

He says it takes 2 semi’s to haul the Brit Floyd show across the country and we asked him last week if there would be a pig or no pig. ‘No pig tonight,’ was the answer when Brit Floyd played at the Cheyenne Ice & Events Center in 2014. It was a warm up for their Red Rocks performance. Keep your eyes out for those big Brit Floyd trucks!

Here’s Grateful Mike’s interview with Damian Darlington from June 13, 2014.
