Having sold over 4 million tickets in 35 countries, The Australian Pink Floyd Show is rightfully hailed as one of the leading concert performances currently operating; The Times described them as “The Gold Standard”. This act is so good they were even engaged by David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday celebration!
Forming in 1988, the band began their venture as a part of the wave of Australian tribute bands that included Bjorn Again and The Australian Doors to arrive in the UK in the early 1990s. In 1993, The Australian Pink Floyd Show performed at the first international Pink Floyd fan convention organised in conjunction with ‘Brain Damage’, the Pink Floyd fan magazine, at Wembley Convention Centre. Throughout the 1990s, the band played predominately in the UK, gradually refining their show and developing a solid reputation on the live music circuit.
The following decade saw the band playing bigger and more prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall in 2003. In 2004 the band embarked on its arena tour in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’, a tour that took the band on to its first major European and North American tours. The band has continued to perform worldwide and has played to sold out audiences throughout Europe, UK, America, Canada, South America, Israel and Russia.
Over the following years the band has continued to cement its reputation, releasing several live concert DVDs and CDs and playing at major European festivals. Its first appearance in Malta became a national event with 15,000 people in attendance - even the Maltese prime minister came to meet the band backstage.
The band has played with other musicians over the years who have performed with Pink Floyd - including Guy Pratt, Durga McBroom and her sister Lorelei McBroom (who is now a regular member of the current TAPFS line-up). The band have often used the services of long time friend and respected sound engineer, Colin Norfield, who also worked with Pink Floyd during their ‘Division Bell’ tour of the early nineties and with David Gilmour on his solo tours.
In 2016 the show has been fully redesigned bringing the latest lighting, laser & LED screen technology to a whole new “Best of the Best” tour featuring songs from all eras of the Pink Floyd body of work.
