Australian Pink Floyd Show UK tour - win tickets, DVDs and CDs Print E-mail

tapfs2007With the band's headquarters in Melbourne promising to deliver "the biggest, most spectacular show ever," we know that many of you are eagerly looking forward to the Australian Pink Floyd Show's forthcoming UK tour which starts on April 2nd in Brighton.

Over the last fifteen years, the band's following has grown at an incredible rate, resulting in sell-out shows all over. The 2008 show will receive an even more lavish production, with more lasers, more lights, more complex projections and even better inflatables!

And in the latest Brain Damage competition, we're giving away a pair of tickets to the show of your choice, a copy of their latest DVD "Live At The Royal Albert Hall", and some DVD and CD samplers.

To be in with a chance of winning one of these great prizes, courtesy of the band's promoters CMP Entertainment, you need to answer the following question correctly:

  • The band played at the first two Brain Damage international fan conventions, way back in 1993 and 1994. The first of these conventions took place at "the home of legends" Wembley - you need to tell us whereabouts Wembley is!

Email your answer to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it with "Aussie Floyd" in the subject line. Include your name, address and phone number, as these will be needed if you are one of the winners. You will also need to say which show you would like tickets for, if you are the top prize winner.

You had until 11:59pm GMT on March 15th to get your entries in to us. So, who won what?

Here's the list of winners in our latest Brain Damage competition:
1st prize - pair of tickets: Lorna Clark, from Poole, UK.
2nd prize - Live DVD: David Hogg, from Balerno, Midlothian, Scotland
3rd prize - DVD/CD samplers: Gary Bacon, Gillingham, UK; Claire Woodbridge, Ipswich, UK; Bob Mitchell, Victoria, BC, Canada; Martin Kilbride, Co. Dublin, Ireland; Abigail Radford, Altrincham, UK.

Well done to these seven lucky people, and better luck next time to those who weren't successful.

The band are playing in fourteen countries across the entire European continent this year, and whilst in the UK, they'll be taking in a pair of nights at the world-famous Royal Albert Hall in London, the venue where David Gilmour himself marvelled at the accuracy of their show: "It's so strange to watch such an eerily accurate version of yourself perform live on a stage! They do the Floyd thing so well, but still manage to put their own stamp of humour in there. Very funny!"
