THE world’s leading Pink Floyd tribute band are coming to Harrogate.

The Australian Pink Floyd Show is set to return with a series of 29 headline shows across the UK in February and March 2012.

This spectacular show arrives at Harrogate International Centre on March 9.

Following the sold out dates earlier this year, and taking its title from the lyrics of the Floyd classic Shine On You Crazy Diamond, the band are not yet revealing the format of the 2012 Exposed In The Light tour.

But the scale and ambition of this band is well documented, the band known for pushing back the boundaries of what can be done in a live setting, taking the concert experience to a new level.

Described by The Times as “setting the gold standard,” The Australian Pink Floyd Show is touring sensation which has sold over three million tickets worldwide.

Emerging back in 1988, the original and credible Floyd act TAPFS has been getting bigger and better ever since.

The ten-piece outfit were described by Floyd drummer Nick Mason on BBC 5 Live as “very good, probably better than we are,” and even engaged by David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday celebration.

The Mirror hailed the act quite simply as, “The kings of the genre”.

The band’s vocalist and bassist Colin Wilson said: “For us, of course, the music has always come first. For the new dates we’ll be putting the Pink Floyd catalogue under the spotlight.

“If you’ve enjoyed previous tours then, let me assure you, this new one won’t disappoint. We’re really excited about this next step.”
