A Few More Bricks’to perform eclipse concert

A Few More Bricks, a Pink Floyd tribute band based in Idaho Falls, will celebrate this summer’s full solar eclipse with a concert at the Idaho Falls Civic Auditorium.

The show is scheduled for 7 p.m. Foolsbane, an up-and-coming progressive rock band from the Northwest, will open the show.

“The show promises to be an evening of the best space rock guaranteed to put you in the groove and eclipse watching mood,” a band release said.

The release said A Few More Bricks formed in 2009 “with the express purpose of faithfully replicating the sights and sounds of an actual Pink Floyd concert.” Their shows have included complete performances of “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here” and “The Wall.”

Tickets start at $23 and are available at eclipsetour2017.com.
