Were you at the Brit Floyd show at the Cheyenne Ice & Events Center?

If you were, then you saw Damian Darlington shredding on the guitar on ‘Comfortably Numb.’ Grateful Mike had a chance to talk with Darlington about his career playing Pink Floyd, the international band and coming back next year.

Darlington said this was the tribute band’s third time playing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and they’re already booked for next year in Morrison, Colorado on June 11, 2015.

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 at the Cheyenne Ice & Events Center. ‘No pig tonight,’ was the answer.

Looking forward to next year at Red Rocks.

Here’s Grateful Mike’s interview with Damian Darlington from June 13, 2013.
