Brit Floyd: 40 Years of the Wall

Brit Floyd, the world's greatest Pink Floyd tribute show, returns to the stage in 2019 with its most ambitious and best production yet, a very special 40th Anniversary retrospective of Pink Floyd's iconic rock opera, "The Wall."

The Brit Floyd show has truly become a phenomenon, widely regarded as the world's greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd. Faithfully recreating the scale and pomp of the final 1994 Division Bell tour, complete with a stunning million dollar light show, large circle screen and arch plus moving lights, lasers, inflatables and theatrics.

Released in November 1979, a semi-autobiographical concept album from the mind of Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters, The Wall remains one of the biggest selling albums of all time, and an important moment in Rock music history.

As well as performing a host of musical highlights from The Wall, Brit Floyd will perform classic gems from "The Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," "Animals" and "The Division Bell" plus lots more.

Beatles: Eight Days a Week

We all know the moment, Feb. 9, 1964, at 8:12 p.m. EST: After a brief commercial break, four young men from Liverpool stepped onto the "Ed Sullivan" stage, unaware of the extraordinary impact this moment would have on America. Seventy-three million people watched The Beatles perform that night - the largest audience to date in television history. It was an event that united a nation and signaled the birth of youth culture as we know it today.

But while this single performance introduced The Beatles to America (the band had already taken Europe by storm the previous year) what they did next would introduce them to the entire world, permanently transforming the music industry and forever ingraining them into the fabric of popular culture.

They went on a global tour, a bold move that had never before been attempted by a pop group or even superstar performers like Elvis. From June 1962 to the time the band quit touring in August 1966, The Beatles performed 815 times in 15 different countries and 90 cities around the world. The cultural phenomenon that their touring helped create, known as "Beatlemania," was something the world had never seen before and, arguably, hasn't seen since. For the first time, much of the world felt truly unified - bound by aspiration and attitude, rather than divided by race, class, religion or nationality.
