Live From Jodrell Bank
Live From Jodrell Bank

Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow for a very special, one-off performance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side of the Moon.

The Australian Pink Floyd, who first played in the UK twenty years ago for the first International Brain Damage fan convention at Wembley, will be performing at Live From Jodrell Bank on Saturday 6th July. The highly regarded tribute act will be playing a special celebration show to mark the anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd's most well-known album, in a truly eye-catching location. Jodrell Bank, in Cheshire, is part of the University of Manchester and is a world renowned British observatory that hosts a number of radio telescopes.

A unique element of the Live From Jodrell Bank shows has seen bands beaming their projections on the huge, 76 metre Lovell telescope and The Australian Pink Floyd Show with its audio visual production are sure to be using this to the best of their abilities in this special environment.

The band have said about this newly announced show: "The music and spirit of Pink Floyd very much embodies ambition and a sense of wonder at the expanses that lie within and without us all. Throughout the band's work there are references to space, the planets and the known -- and unknown -- Universe around us. Pink Floyd have often been described as a British icon and this is something which, surely, Jodrell Bank also qualifies as. The Australian Pink Floyd Show are delighted to have the opportunity to perform some of this wonderful music against such an amazing backdrop. For us to be a footnote in the Jodrell Bank history is truly an honour."

Tickets for the show go on sale tomorrow through livefromjodrellbank.com/tickets and to give a flavour of the setting for the show, as seen at previous concerts by other artists [click thumbnails to the left], here's a promo video for the event:
