“…this was the most extraordinary and joyous show, a reminder of what a peculiar and brilliant band Pink Floyd were… If you have the slightest interest in Pink Floyd, do not miss this group… You won’t even need acid to blow your mind.”
✭✮✮✮✮ Michael Hann, Financial Times
“The sound was immense, electrifying, galvanising, mesmerising and still deeply strange, bending the formats of primal rock into all kind of weird and wonderful shapes…. it was a set of such startling intensity it seemed to mock the very notion of nostalgia. It was enough to make you wonder whether rock has progressed very far at all since the Sixties.”
✭✮✮✮ Neil McCormick, The Daily Telegraph
“This show with him [Nick Mason] at its centre, is a fantastic voyage of rediscovery.”
