The Pink Floyd Experience Live in Concert at Kent State TuscarawasPosted Mar. 3, 2014
The Pink Floyd Experience will be live in concert on March 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas. This tribute to the legendary Pink Floyd, one of the most influential rock bands of all time, includes a spectacular light show, full quadraphonic sound and six outstanding musicians dedicated to bringing you the most authentic Floyd experience possible. It’s “a must-see for any Pink Floyd enthusiast!” — C-News, Northampton, Mass.
Today, years since their last live performance, Pink Floyd’s appeal continues and spans the generations. Their shows were described as theatrical with mind-blowing lights and unsurpassed sound. The show is not only onstage … it engulfs the audience! In keeping with this tradition, the Pink Floyd Experience is a full-on sensory assault — interpretive videos, plane crashes, flying pig, helicopter — it’s all there, live. This is the show for the ultimate Floyd fan.
All of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits are performed live, including such favorites as “Money,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Comfortably Numb,” “Another Brick in the Wall,” in addition to rarities not often heard live.
More than 200 million albums have been sold since 1967, and they had four Grammy nominations in the '70s, '80s and '90s. They were one of the first bands to use pyrotechnics, video and light shows in their stage acts. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 1996. “Dark Side of the Moon” broke all chart records when it stayed on the Billboard Top 200 Album charts for 741 weeks. It stayed there from 1973 to 1988. Nearly one million Pink Floyd catalog albums are sold each year worldwide.
