The Australian Pink Floyd Show returned to Caesars Windsor recreating the psychedelic music of the iconic English rock band along with an elaborate light show thrilling the audience on Sunday night (Oct. 6). The concert was, as keyboardist Jason Sawford told the crowd, the first of several Canadian stops on their “All That You Love” 2019 World Tour.
The tour features classics from Pink Floyd albums Meddle, The Dark Side of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, and more. The band kicked of their set, to a cheering audience in a packed Colosseum, from behind a silhouette curtain, with the all instrumental trippy track, Obscured by Clouds, off Pink Floyd’s seventh studio album of the same name released in 1972. The curtain raised and band then jumped right into two of their bigger hits performing Another Brick In The Wall and Wish You Were Here.
All the while their signature light show, which included a large round video screen, along with their flawless recreation of Pink Floyd’s music dazzled the crowd. The experience felt like a perfect recreation of a live Pink Floyd concert during the band’s late World Tours. When Another Brick In The Wall was performed a giant Schoolmaster character,associated with Pink Floyd’s The Wall album, was inflated and slowly moved and danced on the stage. Images and words flashed on the screen; they included words such as Obey and Trust, and images such as as daggars, radio active hazard symbols, and the tribute band’s signature purple kangaroo. Before the band played Wish You Were Here, videos flashed of the screen featureing clips that included Crocodile Dundee, Men at Work’s Down Under music video, and AC/DC’s Back In Black music video.
Australian Pink Floyd put on a concert with perfect note for note recreations of Pink Floyd’s iconic music along with a visual extravaganza thrilling the crowd leaving no doubts why this band has been called the “world’s greatest tribute band.”
