In 1988, the world was graced with what would become known by some as the reincarnation of the legendary band, Pink Floyd. Lee Smith is a guitar player who has a deep love for the remarkable and hugely influential music of the British rock group, and he went about forming the band The Australian Pink Floyd Show. The band has seen extraordinary success and accolades of the highest order for a tribute act to receive for its portrayal, which excludes any recognition from the music industry because there is no creation of new material not already recorded by the original band. Millions of fans will affirm that any difference between the two is almost impossible to distinguish at times, which is why TAPFS is considered to be the greatest duplication of its subject by a tribute band in rock. The spectacle of seeing the live performance is subtly different, but uniquely its own with crowds treated to things like the inflated Floyd Pig or TAPFS Kangaroo.
Making History Repeat Itself
Although TAPFS has seen its fair share of changes to the lineup of its members throughout its long and impressive history, it has remained one of the most beloved shows to go on tour anywhere in the world. The attention to technical expertise when attempting to accurately reproduce the source material has garnered it much recognition around the globe and even from the likes of David Gilmour himself backstage after one of its concerts. He was so impressed with the flattery that he witnessed on the stage that night that he booked the band to play for his 50th birthday party. The group also demonstrated itself as an innovator in the music industry in 2011 when it became the first band to ever integrate stereographic 3D projections into a stage show on tour. With each tour, the stage sets being designed are becoming more elaborate, and the group hopes to continue doing the live performances it loves for as long as circumstances permit.
