In The Flesh laser spectacular at the O2 - win tickets! Print E-mail

In The Flesh laser spectacularOn sale now are tickets for a special show being held on Saturday, November 28th at the Indigo at the O2, the prestigious venue in the heart of London's Dockland area.

The "In The Flesh Laser Spectacular" is a one-off event that Pink Floyd fans won't want to miss, promising a show featuring earlier Floyd tracks (to many, their "golden era") alongside a state-of-the-art laser system which has never been used in a concert like this.

And, thanks to Brain Damage founder Glenn Povey, we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky BD visitor!

With renditions of Pink Floyd tracks from the albums The Piper at the Gates of Dawn through to A Saucerful of Secrets, Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall, In The Flesh are a seven-piece band who have been touring to great critical acclaim.

This is an authentic excursion into the Floyd's most creative period from the mid sixties to early eighties, with an impressive sound complimented by saxophones and backing vocalists, and also features the trademark circular projection screen.

In The Flesh combine state of the art technology alongside traditional analogue equipment and original instruments, including valve amps and a Hammond organ (the same model that Richard Wright used no less) that defined the true Pink Floyd sound.

The centrepiece of this particular show, however, is the feature of a spectacular display of full colour, large scale high-powered lasers that have never before been seen in the concert environment. If you haven't seen full spectrum lasers you really are in for a treat. Pink Floyd only ever used green and red single beam generators in their shows (OK, so they had a LOT of them, but this is an impressive bit of kit!). These have been build especially by the same company that supplies lasers to the Classical Spectaculars at the Royal Albert Hall and have NEVER been used by a rock band of any kind on stage anywhere in the world before now.

The band have really gone to town on the instruments as well - guitars, bass, Hammond and even lap steel are all original models as used by the real band. They go for the original mid-Seventies sound and only play material up to and including the Wall.

We've a feeling this is going to be popular...

Tickets for the show are now on sale through www.Ticketmaster.co.uk, or call them on 0844-856-0202. More details of the band can be found at www.FloydFlesh.com.
