The Australian Pink Floyd Show

PRESALE: Thursday, March 29th at 10am – 10pm, password: TIME2018

Having sold over four million tickets in concerts that have taken place in 35 countries, The Australian Pink Floyd Show is rightfully hailed as one of the most in demand touring entities currently operating; The Times described them as “The Gold Standard”. This act is so good they were even engaged by David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday celebration!

In 2008 the band celebrated its twentieth year as the shows kept rolling and the band kept on doing what they love. The tours continued to extend, the audiences increased and the venues became larger, with the band playing Wembley Arena for the first time in 2009, followed by London’s O2 Arena in 2010. The 2011 dates saw the debut of some remarkable 3D projections, the first time this had been attempted extensively by any touring band. This Year also saw the band enlist the talents of David Domminney Fowler, Alex McNamara and the backing vocalists Emily Lynn, Lara Smile and Lorelei McBroom. Lorelei was also one of the backing vocalists who performed on Pink Floyd’s ‘Delicate Sound of Thunder Tour’ In the same year Guy Pratt made a guest appearance with the band at Hampton Court Palace.

The following 3 years saw the band perform at major European rock festivals and go on to produce 3 DVDs of their shows. In 2013, the 40th anniversary of “The Dark Side Of The Moon” was celebrated with a brand new tribute to the classic album, performed to capacity audiences in Europe and at the band’s first ever concerts in Russia.

TAPFS have constantly striven to seek out new audiences and turn in jaw-dropping performances to reconnect people with the music that they love. Next year will bring more innovation, hard work, and great crowds, demonstrating that it is still all about the great music of Pink Floyd and delivering the absolute best performance each and every night.

THUNDERSTRUCK: America’s AC/DC Tribute

Thunderstruck: America’s AC/DC Tribute

Recreating the “Thunder From Down Under” throughout the Midwest, south, and northeast United States, Thunderstruck is constantly adding new cities and aims to please every crowd – playing the songs you know and love from all eras of AC/DC.

Dave Moody screeches out the ball breaking vocals of Bon Scott and Brian Johnson, covering all the hits and deep cuts from 1975’s “High Voltage” to 2014’s “Rock or Bust.”

Caleb White brings the sound and image of Angus Young to the stage, complete with a school boy uniform and Gibson SG.

The rhythm section of the band is comprised of drummer Justin Manley, bassist Chris Jones, and rhythm guitarist Kevin Feller, who keeps the music rocking and solid with smooth precision.

Striving to stay true to the AC/DC way, Thunderstruck obsesses over the tones and structures of each song’s studio and live versions, also using all the gear necessary to bring the power and entertainment of a genuine AC/DC show.
