Get ready for an audiovisual extravaganza courtesy of The Australian Pink Floyd Show (TAPFS). The show features a multi-million dollar light show, multiple inflatables and stunning laser effects, all coupled with note perfect renditions of Pink Floyd’s biggest hits. This show, already seen by four -million people, is described as “The best tribute band in the world,” according to the London Sunday Times.

Taking its tour title from “Set The Controls for the Heart Of the Sun” from the “A Saucerful of Secrets album,” The Australian Pink Floyd Show will be performing Pink Floyd classics such as “Another Brick In The Wall,” “Comfortably Numb” and “Wish You Were Here,” as well as a few surprise tracks.

This tour is unique in that the audience is able to vote for the songs that they would like to hear live by visiting the band’s website and taking part in the online poll. The top songs will then be played each day.

Lorelei McBroom will also be appearing on this tour. Her credentials are staggering; she toured with Pink Floyd on the “Momentary Lapse of Reason” and “Delicate Sound of Thunder” tours, appeared in the videos for “The Dogs of War,” “On The Turning Away” and the “Pink Floyd Live In Venice” TV broadcast. She also performed “The Great Gig in the Sky” with Pink Floyd, a song she will now perform with TAPFS.

The tribute band formed in Adelaide, Australia in 1988. The Australian Pink Floyd show consists of Steve Mac, Jason Sawford, Colin Wilson, Dave Fowler, Alex McNamara, Paul Bonney, Mike Kidson, Lorelei McBroom, Lara Smiles and Emily Lynn.

Colin Norfield is also aboard as sound engineer. He was front of house engineer on Pink Floyd’s final world tour; ‘Division Bell’, and has since handled live sound for David Gilmour. Gilmour, who is referred to as the guitarist and voice of Pink Floyd, is an English musician, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He joined Pink Floyd in 1967. The Australian Pink Floyd Show is constantly evolving and honing what they do, having enjoyed 25 years at the top of the game.
