One of the country’s most critically acclaimed tribute bands is returning to St Helens.

The Cambridge-based band were well received on both their previous gigs at the theatre in 2014 and 2015, and are looking forward to returning to the town.

The audience in St Helens has been fantastic on both occasions that we’ve played there

Keyboard player Gordon Reid

Keyboard player Gordon Reid said: “The audience in St Helens has been fantastic on both occasions that we’ve played there.

“I probably shouldn’t say this, but audiences ‘up north’ often become more involved with the show than some down south. They certainly let you know how you’re doing!

“We’ll be retaining all of the favourites, including the band’s signature performance of Dark Side Of The Moon, but we hope that there will be some pleasant surprises too.”

The Citadel gig will be the band’s first Northern England show of 2016, and it promises to be a true spectacle, with lights, smoke and lasers to impress the crowd.

Bassist Garry Tyrrell said: “Fans of Pink Floyd know every nuance of their music.

“They would know instantly if we failed to capture an arrangement, a solo, or even a mood correctly, so we owe it to them to get everything right.

“It helps that everyone in the band loves the music of Pink Floyd as much as the audience does!”

Progressive rock band Pink Floyd’s are most notable for their 1970s albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall. For tickets contact 01744 735436.
