Description

Excellent performance, as usual, from Manchester's multi-talented Pink Floyd tribute band, Manc Floyd. Saturday 27th July, 2013 at Bury Met theatre. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Waters,Wright, Gilmore ) appears on the 1975 Pink Floyd 'Wish You Were Here' album. (The follow up to DSOTM) It is a tribute to former band member, Syd Barrett. Trivia. I last saw Pink Floyd perform this song at the Palace theatre, Manchester in 1974 on their DSOTM/Crazy Diamond tour. A very distinctive sound system set-up whereby Dave Gilmour's guitar was played through a single speaker (on each level) at the back of the theatre. The rest of the band had a normal speakers. The haunting riff of Crazy Diamond, from behind, and the rest of the band from the front was magical. They were always ahead of the game.
