EVENKO Productions is pleased to present a brand new show celebrating the amazing musical legacy of Pink Floyd. BRIT FLOYD will be at Granada Theatre in Sherbrooke on March 8th. Having performed to over 200,000 fans in Europe in 2011, BRIT FLOYD - The World's Greatest Pink Floyd Show, is proud to announce that it will visit Canada for the first time in the spring of 2012 to perform its brand new show, 'A Foot in the Door'.

Sherbrooke will be just one of many stops on the 2012 Tour. This particular show was especially created by BRIT FLOYD musical director Damian Darlington, to celebrate the release of their brand new official ‘Best of Pink Floyd’ album. 'A Foot in the Door' will include all of Pink Floyd's best work, in its entirety - track by track - and selected, by the Pink Floyd band members themselves. As an added bonus, and back by popular demand, BRIT FLOYD's new show will also include a full 23-minute show-stopping rendition of ‘Echoes’, taken from PINK FLOYD's classic 1971 album, ‘Meddle’.

The performance at the Granada Theatre will also include: ‘Hey You’, ‘See Emily Play’, ‘Thebrit floyd photo 2 Happiest Days of Our Lives’, ‘Another Brick In The Wall, part 2’, ‘Have A Cigar’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Time’, ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’, ‘Money’, ‘Comfortably Numb’, ‘High Hopes’, ‘Learning To Fly’, ‘The Fletcher Memorial Home’, ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, ‘Brain Damage’, ‘Eclipse’ and ‘Run Like Hell’.

In less than one year, the new BRIT FLOYD phenomena has been embraced by PINK FLOYD fans worldwide and acclaimed for its note-for-note perfection, unique ‘Floydian animation’ and its state-of-the-art sounds & lighting and has become widely regarded as the best tribute show in the world. A BRIT FLOYD show is truly the genuine reincarnation of the PINK FLOYD live experience...A free ‘Live 2-hr BRIT FLOYD’ promo DVD will be given to everyone who attends the show.

“Blindingly brilliant, jaw-droppingly authentic... at last the group PINK FLOYD have the tribute show they deserve”- Portsmouth News (from the BRIT FLOYD launch show in Portsmouth, the venue where PINK FLOYD first performed ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’) …. brit floyd photo 1www.britfloyd.com
