PIGS: Canada’s Pink Floyd will come to Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside November 2 at 7:30 pm.
PIGS will be performing tunes from albums as early as Atom Heart Mother to later classics from The Division Bell. As a 45th anniversary treat, PIGS will also be performing The Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety.
Formed in 2008 in Victoria, British Columbia, PIGS: Canada’s Pink Floyd Tribute uses authentic instruments and equipment recreating the sound and live concert experience of Pink Floyd in their heyday. Over a dozen different guitars and basses are used each night, songs are performed combining aspects from both studio and original live versions, and the correct equipment is used when possible down to the proper cables and guitar strings. Visual artist VJ Photon (Erik Nortman) has been working with PIGS since 2009, collaborating with the band to combine their own material with original footage from Pink Floyd’s Mr Screen, closely imitating the classic look from the seventies with state of the art visuals and lasers.
