Hi Neil, I've seen them four times in UK, and once here in Vienna. As you say, brilliant!

I have seen them three times, very very good, I was lucky enough to see the real Pink Floyd on the 'Dark side of the moon' tour many moons ago, and the tribute band are so good its hard to tell the difference.

I've seen The Floyd eighteen times since they first started playing together, but when adopted daughter suggested we go to see 'Think Floyd' in Eastbourne I admit I was very sceptical...I needn't have been , they were absolutely superb. Their version of "Echoes" was practically note for note, and 'Comfortably Numb' brought them a standing ovation.

I don't normally do tribute bands, but these guys are definitely on my "go see them again" list.

Saw the real Pink Floyd at the Winter  Gardens Blackpool, years and years ago, at a "works do"

They were producing a bubble effect by playing a blow lamp on a slide of coloured water/oil and projecting it, quite basic!!!!

Never like the idea of tribute bands, a bit like making ESCs and calling them a tribute to Action.....

Our webman Huw does the stage crewing at Rock City and tells of one evening when a Thin Lizzy tribute band were on in the packed main hall................while about 100 people were downstairs watching the real band - well, what passes for it these days (with John Sykes on lead guitar and vocals). Strange times. RIP Phil Lynott and Gary Moore.

went to see australian pink floyd with me dad last year, best tribute band ive ever seen. Its almost as good as the record, the sound and mixing quality was superb which is what brings a lot of tribute bands down.

I first saw Pink Floyd in the Guildhall Portsmouth in pre 'Dark Side' days playing tarcks from ummagumma, etc and then in Bristol Colston Hall when they played Atom Heart Mother and then in Empire Pool Wembley for Dark Side of the Moon. These days even the tribute bands are too big to play the Guildhall Portsmouth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
