THE PINK FLOYD EXPERIENCE presents WISH YOU WERE HERE live in its entirety. With a light & video show, quadraphonic sound and six musicians, the show is slated for Fri. March 2, 2012 @ 8:00 PM at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
As the follow up to DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, WISH YOU WERE HERE explores the idea of absence, takes a cynical view of the music business and waxes poetically on the personal state of former band mate Syd Barrett. The album was produced by Alan Parsons and included musical guests Roy Harper and Stephane Grappelli. Richard Wright and David Gilmour have both stated that WISH YOU WERE HERE was their favorite Pink Floyd album.
Today, years since their last live performance, Pink Floyd’s appeal continues and spans the generations. In addition to WISH YOU WERE HERE, all ofPink Floyd’s greatest hits are performed live including such favorites as “Pigs”, “Money,” “Time,” “Comfortably Numb,” “Run Like Hell” and many rarities not often heard live.
