Australian Pink Floyd Tour 2013
Australian Pink Floyd Tour 2013
The tribute band The Australian Pink Floyd has today announced the dates of their 2013 tour of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. The tour is called “Eclipsed By The Moon” and tickets go on sale on Friday 25th May 2012. The full schedule can be seen below and you can get tickets from Ticketmaster.
There will be 19 UK dates on the tour which includes the rather special night at London’s O2 arena where Roger Waters recently performed with David Gilmour and Nick Mason. The tour itself will feature a brand new format and set-list for these shows.
In addition to the Dark Side of the Moon, The Australian Pink Floyd will also be performing other songs from the Pink Floyd repertoire with a performance that lasts over 2 amazing hours. If you have been to see The Australian Pink Floyd perform in the past, then I am sure you will agree that their sound is not only an excellent reproduction of Pink Floyd themselves, but the visual show is every bit as exhilarating too!
“This album is rightly considered by many to be one of the greatest albums of all time, and performing work from ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ is much like performing modern classical orchestral music. We study every detail of the album as closely as possible,” says Aussie Floyd singer and guitarist Steve Mac. “Our performances are about celebrating the history and pedigree of this incredible music.” adds Colin Wilson, bass player and singer.
Aussie Floyd, who have sold over three million concert tickets in their own right, are much loved for their near note perfect performances which remain true to the original. Their loving recreation of the magic of Pink Floyd’s oeuvre is unmissable and NPF highly recommends you go an see their show! They were invited to perform at David Gilmour’s 60th birthday party a few years ago now!
The band have a busy 2012 ahead of them with major UK festival appearances confirmed. So watch this space!
