The Pink Floyd Experience would like to thank everybody who attended our 2017 Animals 40th Anniversary Tour shows. After 20 years of performing Pink Floyd’s amazing music, we felt this was the best show we have delivered yet. Playing three entire albums, Animals, Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of the Moon was a real highlight for us, as that’s how we first listened to Pink Floyd when growing up. Three complete albums, with playlists in the correct order, played through from start to finish!
We put a lot of time into planning how we could make each album have its own stage look and vibe while musically tying to stay as true to the original as possible. We also had to be able to completely change from one look to another in 20 seconds. We spared no attention to detail and that really paid off with us getting rave reviews wherever we went. The screen overlay used during Animals worked really well and the imagery was so relevant to the songs yet still very ‘Floydish’.
We had so much fun preparing this production and then performing 28 shows. 2017 will definitely be a highlight year for us. Also the feedback from the audience was incredible and has supercharged our enthusiasm for our next show celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Wall in 2019.
Check out some of the photos from the Animals tour and don’t forget to visit us here regularly or visit our Facebook page for updates regarding The Wall Tour.
For those of you who may not know, we performed The Wall for a number of years until 2006. The show got us a lot of international attention and fantastic reviews in every country. We were even offered a two year world tour to perform the show. Many people say it’s the best show we have ever done and some even say it’s the best show they have ever been to. Well, our next incarnation of The Wall is going to be all that on steroids! This show will be our best ever. See you there!!!
“FAR OUT GUYS!!!! Talk about amazing, I was like many other Floyd fans off to the show, not really expecting to have my socks blown off. Awesome show! Having not being able to see the real David Gilmour troop now I feel I don’t need to. You guys filled the bill only thing was 3hrs plus just wasn’t long enough... ”
“You have really pushed the envelope with the lights and special effects. It was truly amazing!!!! The set list was fantastic. Most, if not all, my favorite numbers... but I guess others think similar and that is why you played them. The band played tremendously, such energy!!”
“It wasn't very good, it was bloody awesome! My 2 sons and I were blown away by the nearly 3 hour show. Your version of Echoes was mesmerising and Comfortably Numb was stunning. In fact every song was great. You guys (and ladies) have a lot to be proud of.”
“This music ‘pulses’ in the veins of the audience even after the show has ended. The show is a must see for all Pink Floyd fans. This is no mere tribute show... Five stars is even a bit of an understatement.”
