The Floyd Effect “They Told Us What to Dream” Tour

The music of Pink Floyd as it was meant to be experienced

Pink Floyd’s two most important albums, complete and unabridged… and more

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 its Dark Side Of Reason tour (which, despite being interrupted by the pandemic, sold out
in theatres up and down the country) The Floyd Effect will be returning in 2023/24 with its most
ambitious tour to date: They Told Us What to Dream. This highlights not one, but two complete
Pink Floyd albums – indeed, the two that are considered by legions of their fans to be the band’s
most important works. After kicking off the evening with some classic tracks from other albums in
the Pink Floyd canon, The Floyd Effect will perform the whole of Wish You Were Here, something
that has rarely (if ever) been heard in recent years. The second set will then feature a complete,
unbroken performance of perhaps the greatest album of all time, Dark Side Of The Moon, as well
as some other tracks lovingly recreated from Pink Floyd’s acclaimed live shows.

The timing of this concert is not an accident. It’s exactly fifty years since Dark Side Of The Moon
was released, yet it remains as relevant today as it ever was. From its instantly recognisable
introduction to the iconic heartbeat that closes the album, it speaks to people across three
generations like no other music from the past five decades.

The Floyd Effect is renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the music of Pink
Floyd, and the band faithfully recreates the sound 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 most revered
music ever written and performed by Pink Floyd. Unless you were there the first time around, it
was never as real as this.

Age Suitability: Not suitable for under 12s
