CLEARWATER - Due to overwhelming demand Classic Albums Live returns to Clearwater performing Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon on Friday, May 9 at 7:30 p.m., at The Capitol Theatre.
"Think of it as a recital," said Craig Martin, founder and producer of Classic Albums Live. "We approach the music with the utmost respect and care, and deliver exactly what we promote, ‘note for note, cut for cut' accuracy. This will be a show to remember. We will faithfully recreate Dark Side of the Moon with 10 incredible vocalists and musicians on stage. We’re excited for an amazing night of music in Clearwater."
The concert will feature the iconic songs from Dark Side of the Moon such as Breathe, On The Run, Time, Great Gig In The Sky and Money and the album's iconic title track will be performed followed by performances of additional hits from Pink Floyd's song catalog.
Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it as you remember it from the original recording.
The attention to detail is staggering - every sound from the album is re-created live on stage by world-class musicians assembled for each album presentation. As many musicians as it takes to faithfully re-create each recording are used for each album presentation, no matter how complex the album may be. For example, even the alarm clock sounds in the intro to Dark Side of the Moon’s fourth trackTime are replicated by the musicians on stage.
Reserved tickets priced at $50, $35 and $25 are available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater, by calling 727-791-7400 and online at www.AtTheCap.com.
