I’ll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon

The first performance of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon was at the Brighton Dome on 20th January 1972!

To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the debut of DSOTM, there’s an exhibition of photographs of the legendary rock band at the Dome starting on Friday 20th January continuing to Tuesday 20th March.

The pictures are the work of Jill Furmanovsky (and others) who spent a great deal of time on the road with Pink Floyd, and she will be available for a Q&A session on 20th Jan 2012 at 7:00 pm.

The exhibition is in the Founders Room at the Dome from 10am to 5pm Tuesday – Sunday.

For the life of me, I can’t remember if  I was at this particular gig or not – I still have a ticket stub for a performance at the Dome in January 1970 – so I’m just hoping that there’s a few audience pictures to see if I can spot a young hippy in the crowd!

UPDATE: I have recently been back in touch with an old friend from my younger days, who confirms that we went to that gig, and were totally blown away by it all.

    I was there at the very first performance of this amazing album. I still have the ticket stub (along with many others from The Dome). This was music made for the round auditorium with the heartbeat going from one speaker to another in a circle – it felt like the place was spinning. I have never, ever forgotten it and still regale my friends with the story (if they will listen!!) I was only 16 and I thought I was part of one of the biggest events in history. Actually, I was!!
