Much like Civil War reenactments, rock 'n' roll tribute acts give fans the chance to experience history without lofty ticket prices or having to forge their own musket balls. Keep the lead off your hands with today's GrouponLive deal to see Brit Floyd at the Rosemont Theatre. For $25, you get one ticket for reserved seating in sections 106, 107, 111, and 112, rows AA–HH, on Saturday, March 24, at 8 p.m. (up to a $49.75 value, including all Ticketmaster fees).
The senses are stuffed with aural and visual excess as English tribute act Brit Floyd recreates the sonic mind expansion and visceral enlightenment of a real Pink Floyd show. The band of highly trained virtuosos and a quintet choir of chanteuses does justice to its subject like a jury of smitten rock critics, nailing every note and nuance of Pink Floyd’s signature sound. Rollicking through all of The Floyd’s epic oeuvre, the British band finesses a catalog of timeless hits, including “Wish You Were Here” and “Learning to Fly.” The elaborate stage setup replicates The Division Bell tour, replete with metamorphic lasers and lighting, avant-garde screen projections, and a mammoth ocular stargate, giving fans the closest thing to seeing a Pink Floyd show without being miniaturized and injected into their uncle’s subconscious.
