Canada’s most authentic Pink Floyd tribute band PIGS is bringing their show to Chilliwack on August 9.

It’ll be an epic and rare treat for local Pink Floyd fans as the tribute band covers 47 years worth of legendary Pink Floyd repertoire.

They’ll recreate all the hits and more, ranging from the band’s psychedelic early releases in 1967, through their well-loved catalogue, all the way to their final float down The Endless River in 2014.

In addition to the classics from illustrious albums like Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall, PIGS has plenty of surprises in store, including material that has rarely – if ever – been performed live by the real Pink Floyd.

The band, and their lighting, sound and visual designers are all Floyd aficionados and are coming together to create a breathtaking audio-visual experience for what will be an incredible night.

Formed in Victoria in 2008, PIGS delights big audiences by re-creating the ’70s Pink Floyd experience by looking, sounding and feeling like the real deal. Their show is the “next best thing,” providing an authentic look back into the breathtaking past of one of the world’s most famous and timeless bands.

Audiences can expect long, experimental jams to songs such as ‘Shine on You Crazy Diamond’ and ‘Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun’ as well as impassioned performances of emotional material like ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Us and Them.’
