0

A Pink Floyd tribute band that is no stranger to Fort Wayne fans is scheduled to play the Sweetwater Performance Pavilion Stage. The show will take place Sept. 21, 2019. Pink Droyd will bring its sight, sound and ambiance tribute to the music of Pink Floyd and Roger Waters to the Summit City to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “The Wall,” a seminal album by Pink Floyd.

With a mesmerizing light show and stellar musicians to bring the music to life, Pink Droyd is poised to demonstrate that the popularity of Pink Floyd remains strong.

To appropriately pay homage to the English band, Pink Droyd will play the entirety of “The Wall,” uncut as part of this all-ages show.

The appeal of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”

“The Wall” (1979) tells the story of Pink Floyd, a rock star who has become less-than-enamored with his lifestyle. He wants no part of society and builds a wall to keep the world separate from him. The character of Pink is allegedly based on band members Roger Waters and Syd Barrett. The world of Pink Floyd and “The Wall” also exists as an animated movie from 1982.

The album had three main singles, but two continue to regularly make the rounds of satellite and FM radio. “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2,” and “Comfortably Numb” are well-known to rock fans who might know nothing of Pink Floyd’s or “The Wall’s” stories. “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” would become the band’s only No. 1 single in the US.

Pink Floyd began performing “The Wall” with an elaborate theatrical set, and it is that sense of aesthetics that informs Pink Droyd.

Pink Droyd and its celebration of “The Wall” and the other works of Pink Floyd and Roger Waters is a must-experience for fans of Pink Floyd and classic rock. For more information about the show and tickets, visit: http://pinkdroyd.net/event/sweetwater-performance-pavilion/.
