Pink Floyd tribute to play at Shanklin Theatre

World famous progressive rockers Pink Floyd may have disbanded, but that does not mean fans of their music cannot still enjoy a live performance of their works in the coming months.

The UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show has been confirmed to be playing at the Shanklin Theatre on the Isle of Wight for a special one-off performance on February 16th, with the group set to provide a thrill for fans of this world famous and much loved band.

Pink Floyd was founded in 1963 by Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Richard Wright and Syd Barrett. The quartet would go on to have international success with their debut album Piper At the Gates of Dawn in 1967, before the pressures of a rock and roll lifestyle would see Barrett leave the group and be replaced by guitar legend David Gilmour.

Perhaps the most recognisable and lauded of all of Pink Floyd's works, The Dark Side of the Moon was released in 1973 and propelled the band to global fame. With tunes including Time, Money, The Great Gig in the Sky, Brain Damage and Eclipse, the album touched on themes of greed, conflict and mental illness and is seen by many as a lament over the tragedy that was Syd Barrett's fall from grace.

Later albums including The Wall, Animals and Wish You Were Here were also massive sellers and confirmed Pink Floyd's position as one of the greatest rock acts of all time.

With this rich history and array of musical themes to draw upon, individuals heading to the Shanklin Theatre next month are in for a treat.

Pink Floyd fans will be astonished by the scale and grandeur of the performance, with the two-hour set to be a feast for the senses, including live music and a spectacular light and laser show.

The show will get underway at 19:30 GMT and tickets cost from £15.50 and are available now.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801521769-ADNFCR
