Playing at the Cresset Theatre, Peterborough on Friday, nine- piece Hampshire based tribute band Wall of Floyd formed five years ago out of their love of music and passion for Pink Floyd in particular.

The band members have diverse backgrounds and ages, but they all have the dedication and skill needed to accurately reproduce the music they love.

They performed regularly at small local music venues to great acclaim and as word quickly spread, to packed houses every time.

In early 2014 this prompted their decision to take their show on the road to a wider audience, and larger venues, and so the Division Bell UK tour was born.

Their commitment, skill and experience have enabled them to put together a two and a half hour delight that showcases the very best of Pink Floyd. From the early years of Syd Barrett that started Floyd on their amazing journey through albums such as Dark Side Of The Moon and Wish You Were Here and including the re-released Division Bell , all the iconic hits are here plus a few less well known numbers that when included in one show create a deeper and more varied example of the wonderful sound of Pink Floyd.

Their performance includes Wearing The Inside Out, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Brick In The Wall, Money, Arnold Lane and a spine tingling vocal solo by Ashley Austin in The Great Gig In The Sky.

A couple of great songs from the Final Cut album are also included that are rarely played by other tribute 
bands. A new addition for 2015 will be Louder than Words from Pink Floyds new album Endless River.

Tickets are available from the Cresset box office on 01733 265705.
