SPECTACULAR CONCEPT SHOW WILL ROCK EVERY BRICK IN THE WALL AT GRIFFITH REGIONAL THEATRE

Australia’s largest scale Pink Floyd concept show Echoes of Pink Floyd will blast onto the stage at Griffith Regional Theatre on Friday 3 August at 8pm, with a two-hour full-scale concert production.

Celebrating 50 years since Pink Floyd’s first album, and 35 years since Pink Floyd last toured The Wall, Echoes of Pink Floyd will perform tracks from the band’s iconic 1979 album as well as a selection of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits from throughout the band’s momentous career.

Echoes of Pink Floyd’s Daniel Hunter said, “Each member of the band loves and respects what Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music and we want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert”. 

“We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically,” said Mr Hunter.

Griffith Regional Theatre Manager, Raina Savage said, “This is not just another tribute show – it is the whole Pink Floyd experience with the amazing visual effects synchronised to the music and designed to recreate the sights and emotions of a genuine Pink Floyd concert. “

“We are really excited not just because this is a truly spectacular show but also because our youth drama troupe will provide the “Brick in the Wall” choir during the performance,” said Ms Savage.

The scale of the show is truly unique. Keyboard player Paul Bindig said, “It’s not just the music, it’s the circle, the show and the whole experience. We are the only act touring this incredible 4 metre circle that can project 6000 lumens video. It really is a show not to be missed.”

Several years in development Echoes of Pink Floyd’s six-piece band aims to authentically replicate the brilliant sights and sounds of one of the greatest progressive rock bands of all time.

Bass guitarist Mark Dole said, “At core, we are looking at the legacy of the music.  Our vision and desire is to keep this music alive so it will be remembered for generations to come.” 

Echoes of Pink Floyd is at Griffith Regional Theatre on Friday 3 August, 2018 at 8pm.
Tickets are $75.00, $70.00 concession and $45 U18

“Echoes Of Pink Floyd manage to not only capture the essence of those iconic Floyd songs but also put on a show that’s visually theatrical and entertaining and take on the challenge of recreating the distinctive tones and sound effects, some of which are quite complex” – RogueInc.com.au.
