Pink Floyd Stage Props

Post by Zep_oyd »

I was just curious on the props Floyd used on stage (in the mid 70s) I was hoping I could get some answers

how is the mirror ball floating in the air in this photo?

in a review of 1974 concert they said that there were "three mirror-balls were put into operation during ‘Raving and Drooling’"
is it true that they had 3?

In the same review they mention that during Echoes, Mr. Screen had green orbs on it "Visuals are now relegated to luminous green orbs of circular light projected on the big screen" does anyone have a photo of that? sounds cool


At 13:06 in this video is the person flying in the air apart of the show? What song is he used for?

and the last question what did the model plane for "On the Run" look like for the 73,74,75 concerts?

I've been a fan for a while and always wondered these things, thanks

I saw the show in 1974 and at the show I saw Raving and drooling was the first song played and I don't recall a mirror ball - this was raised in fornt of the screen during Shine on at the end of the first set. Earlier in the tour Shine on was the first song played with Raving and drooling played second and you got to be crazy finished the first half. The planes that flew down at the end of on the run were just spitfire/mustang shaped models. The green orbs were just green lights projected on the screen. The flying person is a spaceman which had light beams coming out of his visor. He appeared at the end of Eclipse

Bristol Hippodrome 14th December 1974 (it was the last show of the British winter tour) I was 12, it was my first ever concert and it was an early Christmas present

When the V&A 'Their Mortal Remains' exhibition moved from London to Rome there were a few new elements, models, photographs and captions; one related to the 1975 'Us and Them' ... here is a lo-res image and the caption -
