Celebrating one of the greatest bands of all time with flawless performances of classic and rare Pink Floyd songs.
PIGS—Canada's #1 touring Pink Floyd tribute—bring their authentic recreation of 1970s Floyd to fans 'in the flesh' with North American tour
WHERE: FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, St. Catharines
WHEN: October 12th, 2019 @ 7:30pm
Realizing that playing large stadiums meant most of their audience could barely see or hear them, Pink Floyd sarcastically called their 1977 'Animals' world tour 'In The Flesh'. This sense of disconnect eventually inspired Roger Waters to write The Wall, which would become one of the highest selling records of all time. PIGS have named their In The Flesh Tour for precisely the opposite reason: while celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Wall and touring across North America, PIGS want to unironically highlight the up front and personal experience of their show.
An absolute ‘must-see’ for any Pink Floyd fan, PIGS are well known for their authentic rendition of classic Pink Floyd songs both new and old. On their In The Flesh Tour, PIGS are bringing an exciting new Floyd show to fans across Canada and the USA to highlight the best of the band’s incredible discography. Fans can expect flawless performances of songs from The Wall, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals, along with other classic favourites and rarities from Meddle to The Division Bell. The tour will take PIGS—currently Canada’s only nationally touring Floyd tribute—from Sidney, BC to Sydney, NS and back, including stops in Newfoundland and the USA.
Celebrate the long and storied history of Pink Floyd with PIGS as they recreate the live Floyd experience from the 1970s, bringing the majestic music and legendary concert experience to life. Immerse yourself in the sound of Pink Floyd beneath lasers and the glow of a giant Mr. Screen, flawlessly performed with authentic instrumentation and incredible live sound.
