High Hopes for Brit Floyd’s P-U-L-S-E Tour


This year is the 30th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd’s 14th, and final, studio album The Division Bell. In celebration, Brit Floyd, the world’s greatest Pink Floyd tribute band, will be returning to CFCC’s Wilson Center on Thursday, July 25, 2024 at 7:30pm as a stop on their just announced P-U-L-S-E tour. Tickets go on-sale on to the general public on Friday, March 29, 2024 at 10:00am.

A division bell is a fixture of UK politics. In the British parliament members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords debate how they will vote on any given issue by dividing into two groups on either side of the chamber. Therefore, taking a vote is called a “division.” Members outside of the chamber are alerted to the vote by the ringing of division bells. (UK Parliament Divisions parliament.uk)

There is a theory Pink Floyd named their album The Division Bell as an acknowledgment of both the contentious departure of Roger Waters from the group, and the ensuing decision made by band members David Gilmour and Nick Mason to keep Pink Floyd together. However, Gilmour – known for being reluctant to offer tidy explanations for any of the band’s music – is dismissive of that interpretation.

In fact, the prominent artwork on the cover of the album speaks to an entirely different explanation of the title. Storm Thorgerson was a British artist and designer and, along with partner Aubrey Powell, founder of the graphic art group Hipgnosis. (famousgraphicdesigners.org/storm-thorgerson) Thorgerson’s art and art direction was a key element of many iconic recording artists from the 60s and into the 90s. He created the two sculptures on the cover of The Division Bell, and photographed them in a field. The resulting artwork suggests “the faces of two people talking to each other,” (thisisvinylcollector.com) and is a recurring theme running throughout the album’s 11 tracks.

The concert will mark the 6th time the band has been onstage at the Wilson, having previously performed here in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2022, and 2023, respectively.

Devoted Brit Floyd fans already know that the show will be both a meticulously crafted homage to the original band, and a refreshingly vibrant celebration that more than satisfies as a concert experience in its own right. New comers to the experience can expect a dazzling light show, classic songs from the Pink Floyd discography in addition to the focus on The Division Bell, and a joyous camaraderie among the multi-generational audience. It is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
