It’s been twelve years since I last saw the Australian Pink Floyd. In the review that I wrote about that show, I said, “Ladies and gentlemen, I can honestly and truthfully say that on Thursday, October 4th, 2012, I saw one of the best shows I’ve ever seen in my life.”

In the almost twelve years since that time, I have been to a lot of great concerts. I would say that that statement still holds true for that concert . . . and it holds equally as true for the second that that I saw them this weekend at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort.

This incredible tribute band from Australia put on an amazing twenty-three song show (counting the encore) complete with an incredible light show and inflatables. I mean, c’mon! You can’t have a Pink Floyd show without inflatables! It is not an exaggeration at all to say that the band were note-perfect in their treatment of their selection of Floyd songs and improvisations that fully complimented them.

As I said in my last review of APF, “The light show and special effects, including the inflatable stars of the show, the “teacher” and Skippy the Kangaroo, were, well, there aren’t enough superlatives to describe that part of the production. I’ll just say that the light show was equally as superb as the musicianship and vocals.”
Again, this still holds true.

As when I last saw APF, Dave Domminney Fowler was one of the group’s two guitarists. He was joined by Luc Ledy-Lepine. Both were phenomenal and blew the crowd away. They did the Floyd tunes amazingly well. With no disrespect intended towards David Gilmour nor towards Snowy White (former guitarist for Roger Waters and who was interviewed by us, here), these boys – along with the entire band – can hold their own quite nicely performing all Pink Floyd tunes.

I’ll end this review by borrowing one more paragraph from my last review of their show because the words still apply:

“As it’s increasingly harder to be able to catch Mr. Gilmore and Mr. Waters together again for a Pink Floyd tour, you would be doing yourself a very big favor catching The Australian Pink Floyd Show. It will blow you away!”
