I saw the Pink Floyd Experience last night.  They are similar to The Musical Box for Genesis, they are a Pink Floyd tribute band.  I'll probably muck up the set list a bit, but this is what they played last night:

Set 1:
Something I wasn't familiar with (couldn't place it), Sheep, Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, Have a Cigar, Wish You Were Here, Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts VI-IX, Hey You, Comfortably Numb


Wish You Were Here

Intermission


Set 2:
In the Flesh (I think, I'm not a Wall fan), Young Lust, Goodbye Blue Sky, Echos, Money, Us and Them, Brain Damage, Eclipse, Mother, One Of These Days, Run Like Hell


Us and Them

And yes, they had a pig!



I was disappointed that they didn't play more of Animals.  I wanted to hear Dogs and Pigs!  The sax player was awesome!  I didn't get any good pics of him because I was so taken with watching him that I forgot until he was done with each solo.  The keyboard player was excellent, too.  He played a Korg workstation synth, Hammond SK1 organ, and I think a Nord 88 key piano.  He was very animated and looked like he was having fun.

Dan, look up Australian Pink Floyd and if you are ever in a town they are playing I recommend it. I have seen them a couple of times and the first time I saw them I was more impressed then the first time I saw Pink Floyd as a whole.

I've read a few people say the same thing, that the Australian PF is better.  I was unfamiliar with either one until recently.

I've only seen Pink Floyd once, during their Animals tour, June 1977.  Good show.  They played all of Wish You Were Here and all of Animals.  Then for their encore they played half of Dark Side of the Moon.

They played echoes? I'm assuming they cut it down from the full version...
