Tribute band ‘Vesbim Pink Floyd’ are playing New Brighton Floral Pavillion Saturday 10th August.

I’ve seen these lot before and they’re pretty damn good.

They do the whole of The Wall in the first part of the show, which is obviously quite intense and then do another hour + of Floyd classics, which is a nice counterbalance to the first half of the show. Recommended (especially if you like The Wall). Vocals, guitar solos etc absolutely spot on.

Ooh very tempted.

It's weird. They're not the real thing, but as some of the original bands age, some of the tribute acts end up better than the real thing.

I'd second the recommendation - they are very good. When I saw them, the girl who sang 'The great gig in the sky' absolutely nailed it. They are well worth seeing.

Back in June Dave Gilmore auctioned most of his guitars (for his foundation I think)

About 130 all together made close to 21.5 million USD

With the standout sale being “The Black Strat” which made almost 4 million USD

Here’s a link for anyone who’s interested in that sort of thing

Roger Waters - Us & Them

Showing on 2nd October at most cinemas as far as I can see.  I'll probably catch it an an Odeon.

Roger Waters, co-founder, creative force and songwriter behind Pink Floyd, presents his highly anticipated film, Us + Them, featuring state-of-the-art visual production and breath-taking sound in this unmissable cinema event.

Filmed in Amsterdam on the European leg of his 2017 –2018 Us + Them tour which saw Waters perform to over two million people worldwide, the film features songs from his legendary Pink Floyd albums (The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here) and from his last album, Is This The Life We Really Want?

Waters collaborates once more with Sean Evans, visionary director of the highly acclaimed movie, Roger Waters The Wall, to deliver this creatively pioneering film that inspires with its powerful music and message of human rights, liberty and love.

EDIT:  Actually Scratch that i'll be at Anfield on 2nd October watching us destroy Salzburg.  I think it may be on again on Sunday 6th Oct

Quite glad this thread has been bumped.

Listened to Animals today and I think it might just be their best for me. Gilmour is on top form, Waters lyrics and themes are brilliant. Not a duff second on the album

I was also listening to it.............Sheep is incredible - reminds me of the struggle we're facing today - that alternative to the Lord's Prayer is inspirational - let's make the buggers bleed...... ;)
