    A PF trubute band, called Australian Pink Floyd are currently touring UK - any of you been to see them. I have heard they are VERY good, and want to take my daughter to see them to make up for me having to go to a 'System of a Down' concert coming up in Manchester (me poor ears !!!!)

    I heard a couple of Pink Floyd Tribute bands. They are a very popular band in this college town I live in. Some were good others were bad. As far as the one you are talking about, I never heard of them.

    Yeah I've heard "The Machine" is really good. Local radio station is plugging them for some show around these parts.

    C'mon Marge - cant you just imagine the atmosphere, The old & the bold (and the bald) all swaying side to side and singing their wee hearts out.

    No need to see a cover band. The boys will be back together for Live 8

    I agree with this. I don't want to see a band that doesn't play its own music... I don't mind for one or two cover songs amongst 10 others... covers can be real good, even better than the original sometimes. I have examples, but that's not the subject here ;)

    yup dreamliner, just heard today that the boys will be together for Live 8 - video recorders at the ready...

    Seriously though, I did see the Aussie Pink Floyd last month and they really are good if you are into Floyds music. You cannot replace them, but if you want a nostalgia trip then this it the best one yet.
