Pink Floyd tribute band to perform in Red Deer

Concept album Animals celebrated with lights, lasers

A 40th-anniversary celebration of the release of Pink Floyd’s classic album, Animals, will be held in Red Deer this month.

Pigs, a Pink Floyd tribute band billed as “Canada’s most authentic,” will play on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the Memorial Centre.

The band, formed seven years ago, is in the midst of its Pigs on the Wing tour of the country, performing with lights, lasers, a giant screen and an “utterly authentic sound.”

Pigs offers a “breathtaking” look back at one of the world’s favourite rock bands at its peak. Tunes from the timeless concept album Animals will be delivered with ’70s flourishes: “Every last detail of the look, sound and feel of Pink Floyd’s classic era is meticulously worked out and perfected,” according to the show’s press material.

More information about the show is available from the Black Knight Ticket Centre.
