The Pink Floyd Experience

Tuesday, Feb. 2



Black-light Pink Floyd posters adorn many the wall of the band’s aging fans and concert-goers. Those old black-light posters, illuminated by 75-watt bulbs, pale in comparison to an updated tribute concert experience with a $2.5 million 200,000-watt light show, quadraphonic sound and special effects, including a 20-foot-tall remote-controlled flying pink pig.

This touring production will fulfill those dormroom, smoke-hazed fantasies to a certain degree.

The Pink Floyd Experience’s creators, Annerin Productions, crafted the finest Floyd show possible—minus, of course, Gilmour, Waters, et al.

They found six musicians to play the classics, especially ’70s Floyd—their prime—and added an in-your-face sensory overload. This cover band nails the difficultly of Floyd’s technical tunes with near-perfection. But, the dramatic lighting with puffs of billowing fog and harrowing, intriguing video footage in the background is what people remember. If you’re a Floyd fan—or just tired of staring at that old poster—you deserve to see this performance.
