New collaborators and even better show

The Australian Pink Floyd Show, the live touring sensation which has sold over three million tickets worldwide, is delighted to announce that they have created their most ambitious and spectacular show ever for the 2011 European Tour [UK dates in March 2011]. Emerging back in 1988, the original and credible Floyd act TAPFS has been getting bigger and better ever since. The band were described by Floyd drummer Nick Mason on BBC 5 Live as "Very good, probably better than we are!" and even engaged by David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday celebration! TAPFS has already been described by Sunday Times as "The best tribute band in the world", but the 2011 show is simply on a different level and must be seen to be believed. The Liverpool Echo said, "The living embodiment of a Floyd show. If you love the Floyd, you'll love this."

Now being handled internationally by Zoo Management, the mission for The Australian Pink Floyd Show is unchanged: to remain the best show of its kind anywhere in the world, and to constantly improve the audience experience. Kevin Brown of Zoo Management said, "We are aware that we are in an enviable position but by maintaining our unshakeable links with promoters, venues and ? most importantly ? the audience of millions that the show has built up since it began in 1988 we will remain number one in the market."

The 2011 dates are simply unmissable as a trio of world-renowned experts with impeccable music and Floyd credentials have been welcomed onboard. Colin Norfield has worked with TAPFS before and takes over as sound engineer once again. Colin was FOH engineer on Pink Floyd's Division Bell world tour. Since then he has handled live sound for David Gilmour, including working on his 'On An Island' tour which featured appearances from other original Pink Floyd members. Renowned Production Manager Roger Searle, who also worked on the 'On An Island' tour also joins the 2011 show. Roger will be using the latest cutting edge, state of the art technology to enhance the essential elements of the existing TAPFS to take this tour to another level. Also joining the team for the 2011 tour is Floyd drummer Nick Mason's drum technician Clive Brooks.

The 2011 shows will feature the debuts of a redesigned laser and lighting show and an incredible new quadraphonic sound system with cinema quality 3D visuals ? created by visual effects maestro John Attard, best known for his work on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The Australian Pink Floyd Show continues to be the innovator and brand leader and has invested and dedicated huge time, effort and expense to ensure that the 2011 show is the best ever. Business as usual, then!
