Darkside – The Pink Floyd Show 2023
Sat 14 Jan 2023
Darkside, The Pink Floyd Show, performing the music of Britain’s greatest progressive rock band, makes a welcome return to the Gatehouse Theatre with an evening of classic Pink Floyd. After 18 years of touring, playing at theatres across the UK, seven musicians will deliver a show with empathy and passion playing tracks from Pink Floyds massive back-catalogue, from the early magical days of founder Syd Barrett through to later iconic albums, renowned for their complex structures. The emphasis will be on replicating the experience of Pink Floyd live on stage in the 70’s which many believe was Floyd at their very best. The superb Cariss Auburn takes on the role of Clare Torry, who performed Great Gig in the Sky on the original 1973 Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon, recreating this unique enigmatic vocal with its extra-terrestrial soundscape which has been leaving audiences enthralled. As would be expected, the show incorporates a spectacular and dramatic laser light show and evocative images and animated sequences projected on a circular screen, which were key features of Pink Floyds live performances.
