Formed in 2008 in Victoria, B.C., PIGS: Canada’s Pink Floyd honours Pink Floyd’s music like no other tribute. They have spent over a decade meticulously recreating the live sound and concert experience of ’70s-era Pink Floyd and have perfected their craft in front of sold out audiences throughout Canada.
The last few years have seen PIGS emerge as the No. 1 national touring Pink Floyd tribute in Canada playing to more than 100,000 fans, with every show featuring their meticulous attention to the details of the live Floyd experience that their many fans have come to know and love. PIGS recreate the live experience of the ’70s with authentic gear, accurate parts, and voices so close to the original it’s hard to tell them apart.
Using authentic instruments and equipment, the band recreates the sound and live concert experience of Pink Floyd in their heyday. Pink Floyd’s live shows were always a huge part of their appeal – and PIGS have been working to keep that experience alive for generations to come. PIGS have the voices, the mannerisms, the authentic gear, the correct players, lights, lasers, visuals, and sound. PIGS are as close as fans will get to experiencing the live sound and experience of ’70s Floyd shows.
PIGS shows truly are a labour of love. Over a dozen different guitars and basses are used each night, songs are carefully performed combining aspects of both studio and original live versions, and the correct equipment is used when possible down to the proper cables and guitar strings. Set-lists are developed to highlight both the biggest hits and the most interesting rarities; PIGS are driven to keep their shows fresh, dynamic, authentic, and exciting for their fans.
On their Coming Back to Life Tour, PIGS are bringing back the feel-good classics to fans across Canada to highlight the best of the band’s incredible discography and celebrate the return of live music. Fans can expect flawless performances of songs from The Wall, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals, along with other classic favourites and rarities from Meddle to The Division Bell and beyond.
