Set The Controls? 2014 Tour

The Australian Pink Floyd Show is proud to announce that their 2014 "Set The Controls?" European Tour goes on sale 1000 on 31 May 2013. Tickets will be available from www.aussiefloyd.com/en/tour/ or by phone from 0844 811 0051 and 0844 826 2826. The tour will draw heavily from the iconic 'The Dark Side Of The Moon', 'Wish You Were Here' and 'The Division Bell' albums but will also feature an element that will allow the audience to choose the material that the band plays in certain sections of the show. There will be 21 UK dates - including a show at The O2 London - on this tour and the band will perform a 2 hour set.

Following on from their enormously successful 2013 dates, this even bigger UK tour will see that band bringing their meticulously crafted show to an ever-growing audience. Founder member Jason Sawford said, "We cannot wait to start the 'Set The Controls' tour, the UK audiences are always brilliant." Bassist Colin Wilson added, "This tour will take the band the length and breadth of the UK. We're looking forward to meeting up with the Aussie Floyd fans again and, of course, playing the amazing music of Pink Floyd."

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. Sunday Times 'Culture' said, "The Aussie Floyd delighted the crowd with a meticulously crafted performance, expensively staged with bright lights, lasers, and, yes, inflatables." The Birmingham Mail added, "I'd heard that the Aussie Floyd were one of the best tribute acts in the business, but I really wasn't prepared for how good they actually were".

The band have a reputation for stretching the boundaries of what can be done with the magical music of Pink Floyd, and this new tour concept shows them at their creative best. The band's fans love what the band do and this tour format will allow them now to get directly involved and, indeed, 'Set the Controls'. More info at www.aussiefloyd.com.
