We are helping The Brighton Dome celebrate its Floyd history, and we need YOUR help. The Dome are working to recreate and share its history, and are applying for Heritage Lottery Funding (HLF) to achieve this. The more support they receive the more we can do to bring alive its legacy, starting with the Dome’s special association with The Floyd and The Dark Side Of The Moon at The Brighton Dome.
STEP ONE is to add your name to support the bid, leave your details as a comment below: your name, city/country location, email address, website. A show of support will enable us to ‘petition’ the HLF and start the process.
“I whole heartedly support the bid to recreate and celebrate the Dome’s history. As a fan, I want to be part of the Dome’s initiative to recreate the history and conserve the legacy of Pink Floyd at The Dome. I want to learn more about the live shows there, understand better the local significance and culture, and the part the Dome played to Pink Floyd. The PF community and the Dome’s community can and should participate more widely with the global community of music listeners to interact, engage, and share this valuable social history.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your details will be passed to only the HLF and the Dome, with the strict privacy protection offered by TDSOTM40 that this will NOT be used for any other purpose than the petition and subsequently keeping you informed about it. I’ll remove email addresses from comments, or contact me direct if you’re happier.
STEP TWO: Tell a friend so they can sign up!
STEP THREE: If you attended any of the 3 Dome shows in ’72 then please tell us if you’d be happy to be contacted by us to gather your memories and pictures and to be interviewed as part of the research process that follows. The Dome will then have more to share, and we’ll all have more to enjoy of these classic shows. Please email me, adding any more contact info: forum alias name, telephone number, etc.
STEP FOUR: We’ll share the fuller history of the Dark Side shows at Dome from 1972, and everyone will benefit from and learn more about this special piece of history.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
UPDATE 12th Aug ’12: the support so far has been great, keep it coming; lots of names, lots of fans, to make a collective will into a collective thrill! – thank you!, “thank you!”
