THE SOUND of Pink Floyd will fill Rugby's Benn Hall on Saturday February 2.

Dark Side Of The Wall will breathe life into the work of Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Richard Wright and Roger Waters.

Formed originally in 1996 the award-winning Pink Floyd tribute act have gone through many line-up changes and have played hundreds of shows the length and breadth of the country.

Keyboard player Pete Riley and bass player Steve Chilton, who were the ‘new boys’ back in January 2000, are now the bands’ two longest serving members with well over 200 gigs apiece behind them.

Steve believes the longevity of the band has been down to finding so many talented Floyd loving musicians over the years, who have all played a part in keeping DSOTW on the road.

He said: “We have developed considerably in the time I’ve been involved and each new member always brings something fresh to the table. We have also worked with many different sound and lighting crew which in turn has also helped.

"That said, I’ve never been happier than working with the people we have involved at this present time. Sofia was the last one in a year ago now and the band has grown tighter and tighter with each show since she came on board. Her vocal talents have certainly added a new dimension to our overall sound, particularly on the Dark Side Of The Moon and Pulse material.

"We have also invested heavily in our light show and stage presentation this year, which now includes a new laser and Floyd style circular truss complete with projections, all of which we needed to do in order to keep the show moving forward.”

Advance tickets are available from the box office by calling 01788 541516.
