Seven Deadly Sins[Brain Damage note: The author of this piece will be the narrator of the concert, so has a personal perspective on this, giving some insights into what to expect with the show...]

In Sweden, a curious production of Pink Floyd songs, related visuals, and storytelling, has travelled the country leaving a trail of glowing reviews. The band is P-Floyd and they are known to spare no efforts in presenting a show with strong sonic and visual impact. The new production is an interesting approach of how to tell the Pink Floyd story, including many of the band’s twists and turns, playing pertinent songs to follow the storyline. All this has been adapted to fit the classic concept of the seven deadly sins, with a narrator taking the stage between songs and seamlessly fitting stories and visuals into the overall musical concept.

Seven Deadly Sins offers P-Floyd in an audio-visual production intertwining with contemplation of the fatal weaknesses that make us the people we are – and particularly as they relate to the front figures of Pink Floyd. The audience can expect large investments in sound, lighting and theatrical elements, but above all a unique Pink Floyd experience from one of the world's foremost concept bands. In Sweden, the newspaper reviews have talked about “absolute top class”, “the total Pink Floyd experience”, “best concert of the year”. Thanks to such reception, the show is now scheduled for an arena tour next autumn, including the Ericsson Globe arena in Stockholm.

During their twenty years as a band P-Floyd has played many sold out concert halls in Scandinavia. The most important events however are the ones played in the open pit mine converted into a concert arena, Dalhalla, a stage used for opera music and also by the likes of Neil Young and Sting. For this they have been awarded ”Live Act of the Year” at the Dalecarlia Music Awards. Their shows there are filled with lasers, video, theatre, pyrotechnics, stunt flying and even mountaineering - treating Pink Floyd's musical heritage as if it were their own, never afraid of innovation.

On October 27th this year, P-Floyd’s Jan Stumsner (guitars) and Peter Holmstedt (bass) joined Men On The Border and a full symphony orchestra in celebrating Syd Barrett, at the Cambridge Corn Exchange, the location of his last ever concert. Now the full band is coming over to present their work to a London audience, having now announced a unique one-off performance of Seven Deadly Sins at the Union Chapel, London on Friday May 26th 2017. Depending on how well this is received, and tickets are selling well, more UK shows may be on offer in the future. Tickets can be purchased through Eventim UK.
