The music of Pink Floyd as it was meant to be experienced.
Pink Floyd’s two most important albums, complete and unabridged...and more!
There are tribute bands and then there are tribute bands... With members who have worked with the likes of David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Jon Bon Jovi, Brian Adams and Keith Emerson, and others who have performed on Broadway and in the Royal Albert Hall, The Floyd Effect isn’t just a bunch of enthusiasts who love the music of Pink Floyd, it’s a band of the highest calibre that loves the music of Pink Floyd.
Following its sell out Dark Side Of Reason tour, The Floyd Effect will be returning with its most ambitious tour to date, They Told Us What to Dream.
This highlights not one, but two complete Pink Floyd albums – indeed, the two that are considered by legions of their fans to be the band’s most important works. After kicking off the evening with some classic tracks from other albums in the Pink Floyd canon, The Floyd Effect will perform the whole of Wish You Were Here, something that has rarely (if ever) been heard in recent years. The second set will then feature a complete, unbroken performance of perhaps the greatest album of all time, Dark Side Of The Moon, as well as some other tracks lovingly recreated from Pink Floyd’s acclaimed live shows.
The timing of this concert is not an accident. It’s exactly fifty years since Dark Side Of The Moon was released, yet it remains as relevant today as it ever was. From its instantly recognisable introduction to the iconic heartbeat that closes the album, it speaks to people across three generations like no other music from the past five decades.
The Floyd Effect is renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the music of Pink Floyd, and the band faithfully recreates the sound and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert without recourse to racks of computers and other technological wizardry. Each performance is a genuine ‘live’ event supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen together with two sets of projections that make it a powerful and emotional experience.
Sit back and enjoy The Floyd Effect as the band takes you on a journey through the most revered music ever written and performed by Pink Floyd. Unless you were there the first time around, it was never as real as this.
