The Australian Pink Floyd Show at Sands Event Center, August 12 2016
Review by Michael Miller
Just after 8 last night, Bethlehem was alive with Musikfest, At The Sands Event Center we had The Australian Pink Floyd Show, a second only to the original Pink Floyd.
Starting off with “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” set the mood for the rest of the high energy, a spectacular lights and lasers display, plus a great Sax played by Mike Kidson, he had a Pink Sax too. Followed by such classics as Time, Breathe, On The Turning Away, “Wish You Were Here” was dedicated to the Original lineup of ALL Pink Floyd Members and was touching and cosmic at the same time.”The Great Gig in The Sky” highlighted with 3 powerful backup singers, Lorelei McBroom, Emily Lynn, Lara Smiles, was truly unforgettable and dynamic. Each taking turns to get inside your soul.
A memorable song “One of These Days” with Steel slide electric from Steve Mac took me back to 1975 when I saw Dark Side of The Moon with the original lineup. it had the 50 ft. tall Kangaroo jumping up and down and that set the stage for “Comfortably Numb” with every kind of Laser, Mirror Ball and special effects you would expect from a Pink Floyd Tribute.
The Encore was Run Like Hell. The show, the crowd, The Band were satisfied. Us and Them departed til next time. Wish you were there!
