TRIBUTE band Pinked Floyd return to Saddleworth next month by popular demand.
And as word spreads of the seven-piece Oldham-based outfit, the group is moving to a larger venue for its latest show in the area.
Having previously played Friezland Church Hall, Pinked Floyd are next at Uppermill Civic Hall on Saturday, May 18.
Formed four years ago, the group recreating the music of one of the world’s most innovative bands is Rose Niland, Luke Sidell, Ross Samuels, Harry Somers, Lee Gilburt, Alan Tarpey and Jack White.
With a stunning laser and video show to complement an exciting and accurate performance of music spanning the original band’s output, they perform a selection of tracks from across the Floyd’s discography in a two-and-a-half hour set.
Classic albums Dark Side of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall are well represented with a couple of less familiar tracks for the real aficionados.
The show starts at 7.30pm, with doors open from 7pm.
Tickets cost £12 in advance from Diggle and Uppermill post offices, Alan and Viv’s Chippy in Mossley or online: www.pinked-floyd.co.uk/shows
Tickets can also be purchased on the door for £15.
The Independent has teamed up with concert organisers to offer a reader and guest a chance to watch their Uppermill show.
