There are tribute bands and then there are tribute bands… With members who have worked with the likes of David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Jon Bon Jovi, Brian Adams and Keith Emerson, and others who have performed on Broadway and in the Royal Albert Hall, The Floyd Effect isn’t just a bunch of enthusiasts who love the music of Pink Floyd, it’s a band of the highest calibre that loves the music of Pink Floyd.
Following their Wall Around The Moon tour (which sold out in theatres up and down the country before the pandemic hit us all) and after headline performances at festivals in England and Cyprus, The Floyd Effect will be returning to the stage in 2021/2 with The Dark Side Of Reason. This highlights Pink Floyd’s 1987 release, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, the album that re-launched the band and saw its live shows scale greater heights than ever before. Described by Sounds as “back over the wall to where diamonds are crazy, moons have dark sides, and mothers have atom hearts’, A Momentary Lapse Of Reason has been rediscovered in recent years by a whole new generation of Pink Floyd fans, and tracks such as Learning To Fly, On The Turning Away and Sorrow are now rightly regarded as among the band’s finest. The Dark Side Of Reason tour will also feature a complete, unbroken performance of the iconic Dark Side Of The Moon as well as tracks from seminal albums including Wish You Were Here and The Wall.
Rightly renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the Pink Floyd canon, The Floyd Effect faithfully recreates the music and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert without recourse to racks of computers and other technological wizardry. Each performance is a genuine ‘live’ event supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen together with two sets of projections that make it a powerful and emotional experience.
Sit back and enjoy The Floyd Effect as the band takes you on a journey through the music of Pink Floyd. Unless you were there the first time around, it was never as real as this.
