Selling 4 million tickets worldwide and described by The Times as “The Gold Standard” and The Daily Mirror as “The Kings of the Genre”, The Australian Pink Floyd Show gave its first ever concert in Adelaide, Australia in 1988. Since then, they have performed in over 35 countries worldwide; played at David Gilmour’s 50th birthday celebration and were even joined on stage by Rick Wright. TAPFS is the leading and biggest show of its kind in the world.

Performing the music of Pink Floyd with note for note perfection, this critically acclaimed tribute show has been astonishing audiences worldwide. Striving to reproduce the Pink Floyd experience and bring the music to new audiences, the show continues to include a stunning light and laser show, video animations, state of the art high resolution LED screen technology and other special effects. To accompany these visuals are several large inflatables including a giant pig and their own distinct Pink Kangaroo.

They have also worked with musicians like Guy Pratt, Durga McBroom and her sister Lorelei McBroom who have toured with Pink Floyd, as well as sound engineer Colin Norfield who worked with Pink Floyd during their ‘Division Bell’ tour and on David Gilmour’s solo tours.

Often described as being more than a tribute band, The Australian Pink Floyd Show is the first Pink Floyd tribute show that took the concept out of the pubs and onto the worldwide arena circuit. The band has played to sell out audiences throughout Europe, UK, America, Canada, South America, Israel and Russia.

With 29 years of history, the world’s biggest, best and greatest Pink Floyd tribute show continues to delight its global fan base.

“Setting the gold standard” – The Times

“For the record TAPFS are a phenomenon to be witnessed live… It’s almost enough to make you forget you haven’t been watching Pink Floyd, but a surrogate band” – Prog

“Probably the most popular tribute band in the world” – Sunday Times ‘Culture’

NEW FOR 2017

The Australian Pink Floyd Show returns in 2017 with a new set of Pink Floyd songs – ‘The Best Side Of The Moon’ incorporating a full performance of what many would call the most iconic rock album of all time.

“In 2017 we will play the classics Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety as well as some of the most popular songs from the Syd Barrett years, Meddle, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse of Reason and the Division Bell.

Building on our continuing success in Europe and the United States in 2016 we will bring a fabulous laser and light show, special filmed footage and original animation onto a large high resolution LED screen, inflatables such as Skippy (our Pink Kangaroo), The Teacher and Pig and a 10 piece band playing the songs with all the note for note attention to detail and sound that has been honed of almost 30 years of performances.”
