Every tribute group wants to be known as something bigger than that, including the Australian Pink Floyd Show, which has returned to the U.S. with its “All That You Love” Tour that stops in Wallingford at Oakdale Theare Friday, Aug. 23.
Aussie Floyd plays music from every phase of Pink Floyd’s journey, dedicated to the heritage of originals Barrett, Waters, Gilmour, Wright and Mason. That means using state-of-the-art lighting, lasers, video animations, high-resolution LED screen technology, inflatables (including their own unique Pink Kangaroo), and live sound befitting a Pink Floyd show.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show gave its first concert in Adelaide, Australia, in 1988. Since then, they have performed in three dozen countries worldwide; played at David Gilmour’s 50th birthday celebration and were even joined on stage by Rick Wright.
The group’s members have worked with musicians such as Guy Pratt, Durga McBroom, and her sister Lorelei McBroom (who have toured with Pink Floyd), as well as sound engineer Colin Norfield, who worked with Pink Floyd during their “Division Bell” tour and on David Gilmour’s solo tours.
