Pink Floyd tribute band coming back to Okanagan

PIGS to play in Kelowna and Vernon early in the new year after sold out performances in July with their version of Animals

PIGS: A Pink Floyd Tribute show



PIGS, called Canada’s Most Authentic Pink Floyd tribute, will be bringing their critically acclaimed show to Kelowna and Vernon early in 2017.

Their Pigs on a Wing show celebrates the 40th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd’s 1977 classic album Animals. One of the band’s heaviest and most political statements, the concept album has become a favourite for legions of fans, and Pigs will be performing the album in its entirety, in addition to material from across the band’s legendary repertoire.

Pigs continues to surprise and delight audiences with authentic performances of Pink Floyd classics, including many songs which have rarely (if ever) been performed live. The lights, lasers, giant screen, and utterly authentic live sound come together to recreate the experience of seeing Pink Floyd live in the 1970s.

PIGS claim to fame is their authenticity recreating the Pink Floyd sound with authentic gear and accurate live renditions of the songs.

Every last detail of the look, sound, and feel of Pink Floyd’s classic era is meticulously worked out and perfected and each band member assumes the role of their Floyd counterpart.

Since their inception seven years ago, PIGS has been amazing audiences with their dynamic re-creation of one of the world’s favourite rock groups. With the passing of keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008, fans of Pink Floyd lost hope of ever again seeing their favourite band re-united.

PIGS offer the next best thing: An authentic look back into the breathtaking past of one of the world’s most timeless bands.
