"On this concert film we have tried to cover a good selection from Pink Floyd's oeuvre, performed with our newly redesigned light show. However there's so much that Pink Floyd wrote and many of their songs are simply so long that we can only present a selection of their total output…
"The Australian Pink Floyd Show: Eclipsed By The Moon," was filmed at Trier & Oberhausen Arenas in Germany on April 12th and 13th in 2013. The set includes songs from across the works of Pink Floyd. All the inflatables, all the lasers, all the hits. Australian Pink Floyd, the worldwide-touring tribute band, recreates the musical and visual concert experience of one of rock music’s most iconic groups. This one-hour concert features everything a true “AFP” fan expects: an astonishing note-for-note rendering of Pink Floyd’s music, evocative atmosphere, lasers and even Skippy the Kangaroo (the band’s mascot). Featuring founding members Steve Mac and Jason Sawford, the band has been performing the Pink Floyd catalogue for more than 20 years and has played to more than three million fans worldwide. Lovingly curated, the band’s live sets are packed with the fans’ favorite Floyd classics from across the years that otherwise would simply not be heard together in a concert setting.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show (aka TAPFS) have developed into one of the best and most watched rock shows on the planet; their audience over thousands of shows in arenas in every continent runs into the millions and the phenomenon just keeps on growing. In 2004, the band performed The Dark Side of the Moon at the King's Dock, Liverpool, which was recorded and released as a DVD the same year. This was released as a 2 DVD set with the full concert on disc one and bonuses on disc two. Also in 2004, the band commenced a major tour of The United States, Canada, Germany and Italy, including a show in Switzerland.
While Pink Floyd may have broken up in 1996, the musical and visual concert experience of one of rock music's most iconic groups can still be experienced today through the musical prowess of Australian Pink Floyd. Their new special, "The Australian Pink Floyd Show: Live From The Hammersmith Apollo," premieres beginning August 2011. Australian Pink Floyd, the worldwide-touring tribute band, returns to public television with their most extravagant special to date.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show is an incredible live concert featuring amazing musicians performing Pink Floyd's music with astonishing note-for-note perfection in a dazzling stage show. This public television special showcases newly enhanced stage, light, laser and special effects in their sold out May 2007 concert at London's most prestigious venue, The Royal Albert Hall. The ultimate endorsement is from David Gilmour, Pink Floyd's guitarist, and a fan himself, having seen The Australian Pink Floyd Show three times.
Brit Floyd is a UK based Pink Floyd tribute band formed in 2010, whose stage presentation, comprising an elaborate light show, projections and inflatables, is loosely based on Pink Floyd's 1994 The Division Bell Tour, often referred to as the "Pulse" tour. The British Pink Floyd Show was born out of a split in The Australian Pink Floyd Show (TAPFS), with the name later shortened to Brit Floyd. Brit Floyd consists of musicians who have all performed with TAPFS.
The first Pink Floyd show ever recorded, one of the two featuring Syd Barrett. This RoIO is of very important signification and features two very songs (Stoned Again, aka Stoned Alone, aka Stone rust) and Rush in A Million, as well as their rejected third single Scream Thy Last Scream. The recording has been heavily remastered because of the poor source, and though the lyrics are barily audible, Syd's guitar is very clear and omnipresent.
David Gilmour sang about an endless river on "High Hopes," the last song on what appeared to be the last Pink Floyd album, 1994's Division Bell. Twenty years later, the same phrase became the title of The Endless River, an album designed as Pink Floyd's last. Assembled largely from Division Bell outtakes initially intended as an ambient project dubbed The Big Spliff, the record was sculpted into shape in 2014 by Gilmour, Youth, Andy Jackson, and Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera by adding guitar and Nick Mason's drums to original tapes that were laden with keyboards from the late Rick Wright. He's not the only missing member of Floyd, of course. Roger Waters is absent, as is the long-gone Syd Barrett…
