Pink Floyd Experience Pulse 2011 (Joburg Theatre)

This music pulses in the veins of the audience even after the show has ended.Utter darkness, a spotlight shines brightly on the first musician, the spotlight moves, highlighting even more talent until the stage is full of light; the audience hold their breath until the first word is sung. Lights shine and laser beams dance, the overall performance was and still is spectacular.The night started off with the programme, most people flick through them in absolute boredom, trying to pass the time. Bu...

Psychedelia to inspire all ages - NZ 2009

Another enjoyable experience was enjoyed by a nearly full Regent Theatre on Wednesday; a Pink Floyd Experience, that is.The Experience is a regular visitor to Dunedin and long may that association continue. It was almost like a reunion at the concert, with people who attended The Wall in 2007 coming back for the Back Catalogue 2009 concert.For nearly three hours, the audience was treated to some fine musicianship. In fact, the five members of the Experience, along with s...

No Farting in the Church of Rock (Johannesburg 2005)

I was a tender 12 years old when I first heard Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2), and I’ve never been the same since. It was 1980, the year after The Wall was released, and I’d just started high school. The song was being covered by a band comprised of older pupils at a school function welcoming us Standard 6 kids, and the lyrics ‘we don’t need no education, we don’t need no thought control’ blew my impressionable young mind.Although I re...

Comfortably awesome! (Johannesburg 2005)

It is billed as a tribute to Pink Floyd, without a doubt the best rock band in the world. Pink Floyd have been an integral part of my life for the best part of over 30 years. I have followed them since school, through varsity and now as a middle-aged father. Following Pink Floyd is like yoga, jogging and journalism – it’s a way of life. I saw former front-man Roger Waters when he came here some years ago and that was unforgettable. But this show was awesome.The kiwis doing the show offer a p...

The Pink Floyd Experience - Johannesburg 2005

"Hey! Teacher! Leave those kids alone!" is the command and "all in all you're just another brick in the wall" the explanation.Small wonder that the South African government of the day "discouraged" young people from listening to Pink Floyd's music. (The album The Wall was released in 1979, the movie in 1982.) In those years the state-dominated media still regularly jumped on its high horse and "Another Brick in the Wall" was banned from the SABC.By 1982, of course, Pink ...

Pink Floyd Experience - The Wall (2002)

Arriving at the packed Theatre Royal one would expect an international act, and the performance was worthy of it. A very slick light show illuminated a stellar performance by an amazing band. These guys obviously love Pink Floyd and their music as they replicated it so well. The light show was right up there with the best of them. A circular screen in the middle of the stage projected images from Floyd, the stage, and the odd image of JC(?) - why, I cannot fathom!...
