In 1988, Australia witnessed a rock concert event unprecedented in its scale, scope and impact.
English powerhouse rockers Pink Floyd, sparkling with fresh energy after enduring significant upheaval in the early 1980’s, came to our shores in support of their smash hit A Momentary Lapse of Reason album. Stunning in its audio and visual impact, this tour set a benchmark still considered the gold standard for touring acts the world over. This tour was filmed and recorded for subsequent release as a live album, appropriately titled “The Delicate Sound of Thunder”.
Now, 35 years later as our country begins to re-embrace live music, Australia’s own Echoes of Pink Floyd bring you their painstakingly crafted homage to this amazing concert experience, Signs of Life.
Signs of Life will take the listener on a voyage bringing back those heady years of 1988, with the best songs from the Delicate Sound of Thunder tour lovingly reproduced for Pink Floyd fans of all ages and backgrounds. Audiences will be able to thrill to tracks that have not been performed live in this country for decades, as well as enjoying all the smash hits and stadium anthems they know and love.
Echoes of Pink Floyd are Australia’s premier Pink Floyd tribute artists, having thrilled tens of thousands of Pink Floyd fans throughout the country since their inception in 2009. The group features seasoned musicians and passionate Pink Floyd devotees Daniel Hunter and Mark MacNab on guitars, Jason Miller on drums, Paul Bindig on keyboards, Matt Goodluck on vocals and Tony Coppola on bass. For the Signs of Life tour, Echoes of Pink Floyd will draw on their extended “family” of amazing female vocalists and stunningly accurate saxophonists Australia-wide to authentically re-create the Delicate Sound of Thunder sonic landscape. The meticulously layered sounds will be complemented by an impactful visual presentation, drawing out the themes, feelings and messages behind Pink Floyd’s thought-provoking lyrics.
Echoes of Pink Floyd’s Founder and life-long David Gilmour enthusiast Daniel Hunter said “I’ve always loved David Gilmour’s guitar work, it’s pure class. This tour will showcase his work at its absolute peak and I can’t wait to share it with our audiences.”
Co-founder Jason Miller agreed. “We’ve spent countless hours making sure every sound is exactly as it should be. This is what our audiences have come to expect over the years and we love the challenge of getting these songs just right”.
Front man Matt Goodluck took a moment to reflect on the Signs of Life concept. “The impact of Pink Floyd’s visit to Australia in 1988 is impossible to overstate and this is certainly not lost on us. We’re so excited to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this iconic tour and bring back some great memories for Pink Floyd fans all over the country. “
