We’re thrilled to announce the almighty Australian Pink Floyd Show is Transmission 004 at Live From Jodrell Bank. This peerless tribute act described by The Times as the “gold standard” will be playing a celebration show to mark the 40th anniversary of the release of the seminal Pink Floyd album, The Dark Side Of The Moon.

Australian Pink Floyd is the biggest and most spectacular Pink Floyd show on the planet.  Having sold over 3 million tickets and performed in over 35 countries the show is one of the most in demand touring entities currently operating and incorporates a psychedelic light show modelled on the light shows used by Pink Floyd during their 1987 and 1994 world tours.  The show includes a round screen with intelligent lights arranged around its perimeter. During a concert, movies and animations are displayed on-screen, complementing the band’s light show. Inflatables such as the pig used by Pink Floyd during the Division Bell Tour and Skippy - the bands own giant pink kangaroo are frequently employed in the band’s shows.

This live show is so good that they were even engaged by Pink Floyds’ David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday celebrations!

The Australian Pink Floyd commented “The music and spirit of Pink Floyd very much embodies ambition and a sense of wonder at the expanses that lie within and without us all.  Throughout the band’s work there are references to space, the planets and the known – and unknown – Universe around us.   Pink Floyd have often been described as a British icon and this is something which, surely, Jodrell Bank also qualifies as. The Australian Pink Floyd Show are delighted to have the opportunity to perform some of this wonderful music against such an amazing backdrop.  For us to be a footnote in the Jodrell Bank history is truly an honour.”
