Selling 4 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 (TAPFS) gave its first-ever concert in Adelaide, Australia in 1988. Since then, they have performed in over 35 countries worldwide; played at David Gilmour’s 50th birthday celebration and were even joined on stage by Rick Wright. TAPFS is the leading and biggest show of its kind in the world and it returns in 2017 with a new set of Pink Floyd songs – ‘The Best Side Of The Moon’– incorporating a full performance of what many would call the most iconic rock album of all time. The show will visit The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, Aug. 27. Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 27 at 10:00 A.M.
Performing the music of Pink Floyd with note-for-note perfection, this critically acclaimed tribute show has been astonishing audiences worldwide. Striving to reproduce the 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 technology and other special effects. To accompany these visuals are several large inflatables including a giant pig and their own distinct Pink Kangaroo.
In 2017, the band will play the classic Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety as well as some of the most popular songs from the Syd Barrett years, Meddle, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell.
They have also worked with musicians like 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 more than a tribute band, The Australian Pink Floyd Show is the first Pink Floyd tribute show that took the concept out of the pubs and onto the worldwide arena circuit. The band has played to sold out audiences throughout Europe, UK, USA, Canada, South America, Israel and Russia.
With 29 years of history, the world’s biggest, best and greatest Pink Floyd tribute show continues to delight its global fan base. The 2017 band line up includes Steve Mac (Guitar & Vocals), Jason Sawford (Keyboards), Dave Fowler (Guitar & Vocals), Paul Bonney (Drums), Ricky Howard (Bass & Vocals), Chris Barnes (Vocals), Mike Kidson (Saxophone), Lorelei McBroom (Backing Vocals), Lara Smiles (Backing Vocals) and Emily Lynn (Backing Vocals).
