The Music Of Pink Floyd returns to Cairns for one night only with a fresh selection of music and songs spanning 9 albums. Joined by special guests, original cast re-create the 1992 Cairns Civic Centre production 25 years on.

From the early Ummagumma, A Saucerful Of Secrets and Meddle, the later much loved Dark Side and beyond, to The Final Cut and A Momentary Lapse, this is the music of the Floyd in a truly live format.
History: In 1991, inspired by the ’88, ’89 Delicate Sound Of Thunder world tour and subsequent double CD release from the English progressive rock band The Pink Floyd, director Cam McCallum began a 12 month endeavour to pull together a group of local Cairns musos and singers, “the best of the working class”, to perform “the best of the Floyd”, resulting in the sell-out 1992 Cairns Civic Centre concert.
25 years to the day, out of 8 weeks in rehearsal, one show only, 25 classics, unfiltered and uncut, The Music Of Pink Floyd. Special effects by Xplosive Arts.
