The Australian Pink Floyd Show

Extracts from Wikipedia
The Australian Pink Floyd Show (aka TAPFS) were formed in 1988 in Adelaide, South Australia. Their live shows attempt to recreate the look, feel, and sound of Pink Floyd's. The shows typically follow the format of one hour of music, followed by a 20-minute intermission, resuming with another hour of music, and often concluding with an encore of "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell". Sometimes the band will play certain Pink Floyd albums in their entirety during a show, usually as a first set. To date they have performed in this format The Dark Side of the Moon, Animals, Wish You Were Here and on the 2008/9 tour, The Wall. When not performing a specific album the band will perform songs from all periods of Pink Floyd's oeuvre including early material by Syd Barrett and longer songs such as "Dogs" and "Echoes" to later material from the albums The Wall, The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell.
