The Brighton Dome

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!”

    I have the 1st DOME show that had a power outage on CD along with over 180 other shows.
    A legendary and iconic band meshed with the history of the DOME for the world to see would be well deserved for both.

  56. BB says:

    Let’s do it – but can we paint it pink this time around?

    Signed!

  60. Redbourn Rob says:

    I fully support this project. The success of Dark Side, Floyd changed the listening habits of a generation and changed the direction of the record insutry. No longer would an album have to be produced as a series of singles, as record companies were now comfortable allowing artists to treat an album as a blank canvas. Dark Side effectively enabled a genre of whole album music expression and the Dome was integral in allowing many of those bands perform.

  61. Alan Hewitt says:

    I fully support this bid

  62. CAB4YK says:

    I fully support this campaign, and commend The Dome’s board of directors for recognizing this series of Pink Floyd concerts as being part of their venue’s rich legacy as well as an important milestone in the history of contemporary music.

  63. Jim Brackenridge says:

    A must for Floyd history

  68. Mark Allen says:

    I’ve been living in Brighton for 24 years… and a Floyd fan even longer than that.

    This HAS to happen. This would be a perfect addition to the historic Dome.

  69. Steven Lee says:

    I support this worthy endeavor to support the history of the Dome and its storied relationship with Pink Floyd.

  70. Keith Youngson says:

    I fully agree. The Dome has a cultural and historical significance that spans generations and should be a national treasure. A fitting site for architectural students who turned to music. Long live floyd.

  71. I support this worthy cause. May the Pink Floyd Fan Flag wave forever.

  75. Roger Janssens says:

    I wholeheartedly support this bid.
    Roger, from Belgium

  76. I fully support preservation of the Dome. It’s an icon, much like the Cavern Club is for the Beatles.

  77. ALLAN says:

    “Is there anybody out there” lets support this, come on P/F fan get signing and remember the great DAVE GILMOUR lives here SIGN,SIGN,SIGN…!

  78. Malcolm Walker says:

    I would curious to hear what Roger Waters would have to say about this project, if he were to hear of it, though I know I am more likely to hear from Nick Mason who is generally supportive and positive, about both Pink Floyd’s past and his own (and other people’s) present lives.

  79. Neil Farmer says:

    Three of us drove from Northampton to Brighton on 28 June 1972 and sat in row A42 (I still have the ticket) – to have our minds blown by the heart beat going round and round the individual speakers, then awe inspiring music in swirls of colours and smoke. This was the start of a journey watching Pink Floyd grow to be one of the biggest bans ever – and The Dome was that first step. It MUST be recorded as such. In October 1972 they were at Empire Pool, Wembley – I was there as well to make sure what I witnessed at The Dome was real!

  80. Thomas Robinson says:

    We should celebrate stuff like this as much as we can.

    Count me in.

  81. 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!!
