Australian Pink Floyd returns for its third visit to Portsmouth’s Union Bank & Trust Pavilion on Sunday, August 25. The show is at 7:30 p.m., and gates open at 6:30 p.m.
Selling more than four million tickets worldwide and described by The Times as “The Gold Standard” and The Daily Mirror as “The Kings of the Genre,” The Australian Pink Floyd Show gave its first concert in Adelaide, Australia in 1988.
Since then, they have performed in 35 countries, played at David Gilmour’s 50thbirthday celebration and were even joined on stage by Rick Wright. TAPFS is the leading and biggest show of its kind in the world.
Performing the music of Pink Floyd with note-for-note perfection, this critically acclaimed show has been astonishing audiences worldwide for three decades. Always striving to reproduce the complete Pink Floyd experience and bring the music to new audiences, the show continues to include a stunning light and laser show, video animations,state of the art, high resolution LED screen technologyand other special effects. In addition, and in true Pink Floyd fashion, there are several huge inflatables including a giant pig and their own unique Pink Kangaroo.
They have worked with musicians Guy Pratt, Durga McBroom and her sister Lorelei McBroom who have toured with Pink Floyd, as well as sound engineer Colin Norfield who worked with Pink Floyd during their ‘Division Bell’ tour and on David Gilmour’s solo tours.
Often described as being much more than a tribute band, The Australian Pink Floyd Show is the first Pink Floyd tribute show that took the concept into the worldwide arena circuit. The band has played to sold-out audiences throughout Europe, UK, America, Canada, South America, Israel and Russia.
With 30 years of history, the world’s biggest, best and greatest Pink Floyd tribute show continues to delight its global fan base.
