I saw them once a couple years ago (when they were doing Dark Side of the Moon) with my dad. 3rd row center, unbelievable show.. I choked up during C. Numb when I realized that would be the closest I'll ever come to hearing the real thing play it live.

But long story short, these guys are good. Close your eyes during a solo and you'll never be able to tell the difference. Highly recommended

Huh, they're coming to Seattle soon; they're playing not far from where I work, and everytime I drive by, I see the sign and am all "Australian Pink Floyd? The hell? Is there a Finlandian Pink Floyd? A Zimbabwean Pink Floyd?"

They played in L.A. on the same night as the final Genesis reunion show last month. And no, we didn't go. I ended up at a U2 Tribute show

they have been doing it since the late 80s... And from what I hear David Gilmour approves.. He has performed with them before. Also, the back up singers are amazing, especially this one girl..wow! A little thing with a HUGE voice.

My aunt and uncle have seen them a few times and always rave about their shows. Perhaps I'll see them one of these days...
