As some of the biggest names in music flock to Montreal for show-stopping concerts, one thing becomes abundantly clear: Montreal has Pink Floyd fever! Indeed, as upcoming concerts demonstrate, the city is a big fan of the legendary psychedelic rockers! While the height of the band’s prosperity may have been in the 1970s, Pink Floyd is still recognized as the game-changing act that revolutionized the music scene with iconoclastic albums such as The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, and Wish You Were Here.
Firstly, Montreal will welcome back everybody’s favorite cover band, the Australian Pink Floyd Show! The act is unquestionably the biggest, greatest, and most daring cover band in the world, boasting performances in over 35 countries and over 4 million tickets sold. TAPFS defies all preconceptions about what it means to be a cover band, and faithfully captures the feel of what made Pink Floyd one of the most beloved bands in music history. TAPFS will bring its Best Side of the Moon Tour to Place des Arts on August 6th.
Then, on October 16th, a veritable rock and roll deity will make his way to Montreal. To this day, Roger Waters is worshipped as the creative force behind Pink Floyd’s masterful endeavors. In particular, his sonic arrangements and lyrical prose have garnered international acclaim while simultaneously transforming him into a revered conceptual maestro. Witness the creative genius live in concert as he brings his Us + Them Tour to the Bell Centre.
Both acts know how to put on a show, so be sure to get your tickets to the Australian Pink Floyd Show and Roger Waters. Expect quadrophonic sound systems, fog machines, pyrotechnics, projections, inflatable puppets and, above all, incomparable exhilaration.
