Brit Floyd will light up Wilson Center this spring

Brit Floyd’s light show will entertain audiences at Wilson Center in April 2022.

WILMINGTON —  The Wilson Center in downtown Wilmington will welcome the return of Brit Floyd next April.

The tribute band — hailed as “the world’s greatest Pink Floyd show” — has a new production, featuring songs from “The Wall,” “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Animals,” and “The Division Bell.” The new performance includes 23-minute “note-for-note” delivery of the 50-year-old track “Echoes,” featured on Pink Floyd’s 1971 album “Meddle.”

Brit Floyd was founded in 2011 and has had a rotation of a dozen or more members throughout the last decade. Founded by its musical director Damian Darlington (guitar, lap steel, vocals), the band has even performed with Pink Floyd touring saxophonist and rhythm guitar player Scott Page. The tribute band has put on more than 1,000 shows, selling out performance across Europe, North America, South America, and the Middle East.

The Brit Floyd show includes a multi-million dollar light show, iconic circle screen, lasers, inflatables, and theatrics. Tickets to the Apr. 11 performance will go on sale Friday, Dec. 17, 10 a.m. online at www.WilsonCenterTickets.com, or by contacting Ticket, 910-362-7999. Tickets are open now to Cape Fear Stage members.
