“The Australian Pink Floyd Show brings the ultimate concert experience to Pink Floyd fans across the globe. When the 2012 world tour stops in the Triangle, fans will rock out to all the classics in a multi-media sensory experience with a state-of-the-art surround sound, lasers, lights, and video effects.

Having sold over three 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.

It all began in 1988 in Adelaide. Lee Smith, a local guitarist obsessed with Pink Floyd, and needing to augment his band [featuring drummer Grant Ross and bassist Trevor Turton] placed an ad in Allan’s Music store. It read: “Vocalist and Keyboardist required for band. Professional attitude expected. We only play Pink Floyd.” Steve Mac and Jason Sawford each saw the ad, and soon the now-five-piece band commenced regular weekly practice.

Continuing to wow their crowds globally, TAPFS have constantly striven to seek out new audiences and turn in jaw-dropping performances to reconnect people with the music that they love. It is still all about the music - Pink Floyd - and delivering the absolute best performance each and every night.
