To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the seminal album’s release, ECHOES OF PINK FLOYD will perform The Wall in its entirety, along with an encore featuring a special selection of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits.
The Wall was the eleventh studio album by the English rockers and was released on November 30 1979. It topped the US Billboard charts for 15 weeks and became the band’s second best-selling album and one of the best-selling albums of all time. It was adapted into a feature film and the single from the album, titled Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2, was the band’s first and only number-one single.
The all-new show will take audiences on a musical and visual journey which will see each album track performed with authenticity, passion and accuracy. In addition, the show will provide insight into the complex and multi-layered themes behind The Wall, leaving audiences with not only a breathtaking concert experience, but also a deeper understanding of composer Roger Waters’ messages and motivation in writing this unforgettable musical masterpiece.
Formed in 2009 and with thousands of hours of rehearsal and live performance behind them, ECHOES OF PINK FLOYD comprises a six-piece band featuring Daniel Hunter on lead guitar; Jason Miller on drums; Mark Dole on bass; Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers; Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar and Matt Goodluck on lead vocals. The band’s aim is to authentically replicate the brilliant sights and sounds of one of the world’s greatest progressive rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd. The Adelaide-based tribute has been touring nationally since 2014, with audiences describing the show as “amazingly awesome” and “a musical and visual journey that never disappoints”, whilst also likening them to “the original band”.
ECHOES OF PINK FLOYD tour with a 4-metre light circle upon which a video show is projected at 6000 lumens’ intensity. The band perfectly synchronise their playing to the visuals to complete an experience that delivers the sights, sounds and emotions of a genuine Pink Floyd concert.
ECHOES OF PINK FLOYD’s Daniel Hunter says, “Each member of the band loves and respects what the original Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music. We want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert, or wish to relive memories from their youth. “We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically,” he adds.
