The Australian Pink Floyd
SATURDAY 21ST FEBRUARY 2015
The Australian Pink Floyd Show is proud to announce their ‘Welcome To The Machine’ 2015 European Tour.
The tour celebrates 40 years since the release of the landmark album ‘Wish You Were Here’, Pink Floyd’s ninth album, but will draw also heavily from the iconic ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ and ‘The Division Bell’ albums. There will be 22 UK dates on this tour and the band will perform a 2 hour set.
The 2015 concerts will offer a true homage to ‘Wish You Were Here’, a true benchmark of musical culture, and a cherry-picking of the whole Floyd oeuvre, delivered by top-notch musicians whose love for Pink Floyd knows no bounds. The Australian Pink Floyd Show are much more than a tribute to the great music of Pink Floyd, and were described by The Times as “the gold standard”. The band capture and convey the spirit as well as the sound, and slavish attention is lavished upon jaw-dropping staging. The 2015 dates offer a host of brand new visuals and effects and an overhauled technical set-up, resulting simply in a show that is even bigger and even better.
Aussie Floyd, who have sold over four million concert tickets globally, have generated their own heritage with scores of sold-out shows featuring note perfect performances which remain true to the original. This month Classic Rock said, “TAPFS make the Floyd experience their own”. Forthcoming shows will feature vocalist Lorelei McBroom, who performed with Pink Floyd on the ‘Momentary Lapse of Reason’ "and ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder’ tours. Colin Norfield is also aboard as sound engineer. He was FOH engineer on Pink Floyd’s final world tour; ‘Division Bell’, and has since handled live sound for David Gilmour.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show is constantly evolving and honing what they do, having enjoyed 25 years at the top of the game. Sunday Times ‘Culture’ said, “The Aussie Floyd delighted the crowd with a meticulously crafted performance, expensively staged with bright lights, lasers, and, yes, inflatables.” The Birmingham Mail added, “I’d heard that the Aussie Floyd were one of the best tribute acts in the business, but I really wasn’t prepared for how good they actually were”. Put simply, Aussie Floyd recreate the Pink Floyd magic with fidelity, passion and finesse.
