Australia's largest scale Pink Floyd concept act Echoes of Pink Floyd are set to perform in Bathurst next month as part of a tour honouring the music of the legendary British progressive rock outfit.
Entitled "A Journey Through Time", the Adelaide-based band's latest show will take audiences on a musical and visual journey from Pink Floyd's earliest days as darlings of 1960's London's psychedelic underground, all the way to their 1990's powerhouse performances as the undisputed masters of stadium rock.
Audiences will be treated to an extensive exploration of the band's impressive catalogue as the gang from Echoes of Pink Floyd plays all of Pink Floyd's biggest smash hits, as well as some lovingly hand-picked deep album cuts designed to please the most committed of hard-core fans.
Echoes of Pink Floyd comprises a six-piece band featuring Daniel Hunter on lead guitar; Jason Miller on drums; Tony Coppola on bass; Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers; Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar and Matt Goodluck on lead vocals.
The band's aim is to authentically replicate the brilliant sights and sounds of one of the world's greatest progressive rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd.
"Each member of the band loves and respects what the original Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music," Hunter said.
"We want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert, or wish to relive memories from their youth."
"We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically."
The Adelaide-based tribute has been touring nationally since 2014, with audiences describing the show as "amazingly awesome" and "a musical and visual journey that never disappoints", whilst also likening them to "the original band."
Echoes of Pink Floyd tour with a four-metre light circle upon which a video show is projected at 6000 lumens' intensity.
The band perfectly synchronise their playing to the visuals to complete an experience that delivers the sights, sounds and emotions of a genuine Pink Floyd concert.
"At our core, we are looking at the legacy of the music," Miller said
"Our vision and desire is to keep this music alive so it will be remembered for generations to come."
The Bathurst Academy of Dance choir will make a guest appearance during the performance.
The performance will take place at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre on Saturday, May 15 from 8pm.
Tickets cost $75 for adults, $70 for concession and $45 for children under 17.
