AUSTRALIAN PINK FLOYD SHOW - North American Fall Dates Announced
October 10, 2012, 5 years ago
It's clear that the AUSTRALIAN PINK FLOYD SHOW is the world's top Floyd tribute act - after all, they performed at David Gilmour's 50th birthday party. And soon, US and Canadian fans will get a chance to catch the group "in the flesh," as they will be criss-crossing North America as part of the Exposed In The Light Tour, from September 28th through November 21st.
Comprised of members Steve Mac, Colin Wilson, Jason Sawford, Paul Bonney, David Domminney Fowler, Alex McNamara, Mike Kidson, Emily Lynn, and Lara Smiles, the Australian Pink Floyd Show has sold over three million tickets worldwide.
The band states "We are also delighted to confirm that Pink Floyd veteran Lorelei McBroom will be appearing on this tour. Lorelei’s credentials are staggering; she toured with Pink Floyd on the Momentary Lapse of Reason and Delicate Sound of Thunder tours, appeared in the videos for 'The Dogs of War,' 'On The Turning Away' and the Pink Floyd Live In Venice TV broadcast. She also performed 'The Great Gig In The Sky' with Pink Floyd; a song she will now perform with TAPFS."
And for the Exposed in the Light Tour, the band has created a whole new, incredible show. New lasers, new lights, and more video effects have all been added, but as Colin Wilson recently explained, the focus is always on the classic music of Pink Floyd. “For us, of course, the music has always come first. For the new dates we’ll be putting the Pink Floyd catalogue under the spotlight, breathing life into some material that would otherwise not get heard and ensuring that our audiences are just blown away by the show. We’re really excited about this next step.”
Originally formed in 1988, the Australian Pink Floyd Show has received steady praise over the years, including Floyd drummer Nick Mason, who described the group on BBC 5 Live as “very good, probably better than we are.”
Additionally, the group has earned a 4.5 rating out of a possible 5 on the Ticketmaster site, based on feedback from fans that caught earlier shows in the US. "Really enjoyed the show, as it sounded just like Pink Floyd," raved one user, while another said, "Awesome show musically and stage presentation. I would go again next time their in town."
