Dark Side of the Moon LIVE - National Space Centre - Leicester

Take an immersive journey to the Dark Side of the Moon.In 1968, the Apollo 8 spacecraft orbited the Moon, making the crew of Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders the first humans to view the dark side of the Moon. To date, no human being has ever stood on the surface of the dark side of the Moon.To celebrate the Apollo 8 mission and to create a truly unique experience, the National Space Centre team are working with Darkside The Pink Floyd Show to host a live performance of Dark Side of the Moon, alongside the Apollo 8 story in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium.Pink Floyd played a major part in the heady days of the 60’s and 70’s, creating thoughtful, melodic and innovative sounds and shows that captured the feelings of optimism and freedom that set out the era as something really very special.The Dark Side of the Moon was released on 1 March 1973. Although Pink Floyd titled the album an allusion to lunacy, rather than astronomy, the links between the band and the Apollo space programme can be seen in their work. The evening will include a mini beer festival and two performances.• 18:30 Doors open – beer festival open to anybody with performance ticket• 19:30 First performance of Dark Side of the Moon• 21:00 Second performance of Dark Side of the Moon• 22:00 Performance ends• 22:30 Bar closed• 23:00 Building closedCafé will be serving hotdogs, nachos, jacket potatoes, salads, snacks, sandwiches, hot/cold drinks and a selection of wines and spirits from 18:30Tickets to ONE performance and entry to the Beer Festival - £15Darkside The Pink Floyd Show The band was formed in the summer of 2005 as a result of their desire to not only play but perform the music of Pink Floyd with the same sense of adventure and experimentalism that made the band so unique in the Sixties and Seventies. From the outset their concept has been to capture both the spirit and the tonality of the music without being afraid to add to or adapt the originals to provide that genuine 'live' feel.Darkside - The Pink Floyd Show utilise a vast array of lighting, laser and pyrotechnic effects that form the basis of their stage show. A performance inspired by the shows that made Pink Floyd famous from their debut in the late 1960s, throughout the Seventies and into the 1980s with the blockbusting tours of 'The Wall'. Light
