Without question, Pink Floyd remains one of the most influential rock bands of all time. Their recordbreaking status is legendary. The 1977 concept album “Animals” was a statement regarding the decline of society of the day.
While making the album did set in motion the discord that would eventually destroy the band, the subsequent tour for this release planted the seeds for what would become The Wall.
Now, The Pink Floyd Experience will present “Animals” live in its entirety. With a spectacular light and video show, full quadraphonic sound and six outstanding musicians dedicated to bringing you the most authentic Floyd experience possible, it’s a must-see for any Pink Floyd enthusiast.
Today, years since their last live performance, Pink Floyd’s appeal continues and spans the generations. Their shows were described as theatrical with mind-blowing lights and unsurpassed sound. The show is not only on-stage, but it engulfs the audience.
In keeping with this tradition, The Pink Floyd Experience is a full-on sensory assault — interpretive videos, plane crashes, flying pigs, helicopter — it’s all there, live. This is the show for the ultimate Floyd Fan, and it gets closer to the true Pink Floyd concert experience every year!
In addition to “Animals,” all of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits are performed live including such favorites as “Money,” “Have A Cigar,” “Time,” “Comfortably Numb,” “Run Like Hell” and many rarities not often heard live.
The Pink Floyd Experience is generously supported by McLaren Regional Medical Center, Health Alliance Plan, ABC12, All Weather Seal, WILZ 104.5, Banana 101.5, FOX 103.9 and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. — G.G.
