Nick Mason and David Gilmour say that this is, without a doubt, the best tribute to Pink Floyd that could be done. So when these Australians take the stage to cover the London band's masterpieces, the flashback is immediate. Welcome to a psychedelic past!
Adelaide, end of the eighties. When Pink Floyd decides to turn the page, others prefer to take the book from the first lines. So it was here, on the shores of the Gulf of St. Vincent, that some young nostalgics decided to take things in hand. There was no question of letting this treasure of contemporary music, which had changed the face of the world, fall into ruin under the weight of time.
If a painter leaves paintings, a musician leaves albums behind. But what about the stage performance? What way to allow the young people of today and the nostalgic of yesterday to feel that sensation that words cannot describe, as when the giants of London took the stage to pulverize rock with a dizzying ingenuity? The Australian Pink Floyd Show seems to have found the answer. No, they are neither soulless imitators nor opportunists looking for vicarious glory. To keep the legend alive, they preferred to become torchbearers, creative and loyal, combining to perfection the sensations of a glorious past with the warmth of the present moment.
The recipe worked. They traded beer-filled pubs for stadiums packed with amazed music lovers. They conquered the continents, the fans of the first hours, like the children of the new world. In its own way, between fluorescent lasers, a dazzling fire plan and a luminous repertoire, this formidable tribute band, recognized by its peers, rekindles a flame that has never had time to know the ashes.
If their career started in the pubs of Australia, the men from Adelaide quickly conquered the most beautiful halls in the world. The Australian Pink Floyd Show is indeed quick to be spotted by the outstanding quality of their covers. The Floyd's feelings are there, the colors, the sounds, the emotion too.
What a joy to be recognized by his peers. For the first time, David Gilmour attends a concert of The Australian Pink Floyd Show. Just like Nick Mason, who will not resist the curiosity to discover the tribute band a few months later, he is bluffed by the quality of the performance. "The Australians are even better than us on some songs", they will declare.
Did we ever tell you that David Gilmour loved this tribute band? Yes, we have. But let's say it again, because to celebrate his 50th anniversary, the guitarist offers The Australian Pink Floyd Show to perform during the evening. The show, once again, is impressive.
To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the magnificent album The Dark Side of the Moon, The Australian Pink Floyd Show presents a mythical tour. Everything is in place: songs played to perfection, a stage performance worthy of the London gods. They then toured the most beautiful concert halls, passing several times by the Olympia in Paris.
From simple Pink Floyd fans, they have become the best representatives of Pink Floyd, all over the world. Their performance at the Seine Musicale, in Boulogne-Billancourt, marked the launch of a new tour, All That You Feel. From the very first performance, the fans of the English band were in awe: these Australians had perfectly captured the spirit of the time.
