THE PIG FLIES AGAIN
The Pink Floyd Experience Returns to Rock Waterbury Palace
Updated Jan. 18, 2013
Waterbury – Adoring rock fans who thought they would see “pigs fly” before they had the chance to experience the sights and sounds of an authentic Pink Floyd concert again, will wait no more. The Pink Floyd Experience, a celebration of the music, themes and innovation that made Pink Floyd one of Rock and Roll’s greatest icons, returns to the Waterbury Palace Theater for a one-of-a-kind concert event on Saturday, February 9, at 8p.m., complete with a 12-foot, floating pig blimp.
Much more than a flawless recreation of the band’s legendary songs, which spanned decades in their appeal, The Pink Floyd Experience is a massive, two-hour stage production featuring a dazzling light show, high definition video projection, quadraphonic sound and six outstanding musicians that combine to bring rock fans the most authentic Floyd Experience possible. The band, which features musicians Tom Quinn (lead guitarist), Gus Beaudoin (bass guitar) Zachary Throne (guitar and vocals), Jesse Molloy (saxophone), John Cox (keyboard) and Bob Sale (drums), perform note-for-note recreations of all of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits including "Money,” “Time,” “Comfortably Numb,” and “Wish You Were Here,” in addition to rarer tracks not often performed live.
One of the first bands to use pyrotechnics, video, and light shows in their stage acts, Pink Floyd have sold more than 200million albums since 1967, and garnered four Grammy nominations, as well as an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. ”Dark Side of the Moon,” the band’s must popular album broke all chart records when it stayed on the Billboard Top 200 Album charts for 741 weeks, from 1973 to 1988.
