The Australian Pink Floyd Show
turn to the Dark Side in 2013

The Australian Pink Floyd Show is proud to announce that their 2013 "Eclipsed By The Moon" European Tour goes on sale 1000 on Friday 25 May 2012. The tour will celebrate the iconic 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' album. There will be 19 UK dates - including a show at The O2 London - on this tour that will feature a brand new format and set-list for these shows. The band will also be performing other classic Pink Floyd tracks from many other albums with a performance that stretches over 2 hours.

The Pink Floyd classic features legendary songs, including 'The Great Gig In The Sky,''Us And Them' and the two singles taken from the album, 'Money' and 'Time'. The album has sold over 50 million copies worldwide, making it Floyd's most successful album, and remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988, longer than any other album in history.

"This album is rightly considered by many to be one of the greatest albums of all time, and performing work from \'The Dark Side Of The Moon\' is much like performing modern classical orchestral music. We study every detail of the album as closely as possible," says Aussie Floyd singer and guitarist Steve Mac. "Our performances are about celebrating the history and pedigree of this incredible music," adds Colin Wilson, bass player and singer.

The Australian Pink Floyd Show are much more than a tribute to the great music of Pink Floyd, and were described by The Times as "the gold standard". The band attempt to capture and convey the spirit as well as the sound, and slavish attention is lavished upon their jaw-dropping visuals and effects. Aussie Floyd, who have sold over three million concert tickets in their own right, are much loved for their near note perfect performances which remain true to the original. Their loving recreation of the magic of Pink Floyd's oeuvre is unmissable.

The next few months will be busy for the band, with a major UK festival appearance confirmed too; breaking news on this as we have it, see also aussiefloyd.com.
