This new concert special is bursting with Pink Floyd's most beloved songs set to a state-of-the-art 3-D laser show. Taped in front of a sold-out London audience on July 17, 2011, the one-hour concert features everything a true "AFP" fan expects: an astonishing note-for-note rendering of Pink Floyd's music, evocative atmosphere, lasers, explosions, inflatable pigs and even Skippy the Kangaroo (the band's pseudo mascot).

The show offers stunning performances of classics like "Wish You Here," "Another Brick in the Wall" (Part 2) and "Comfortably Numb," to name but three from their nine-song set. These unprecedented concert visuals and cutting-edge effects have been described by concert goers and music aficionados as what Pink Floyd would be doing if they were still touring today.

Featuring founding members Steve Mac and Jason Sawford, the band has been performing the Pink Floyd catalogue for more than 20 years and has played to more than three million fans worldwide. Lovingly curated, the band's live sets are packed with the fans' favorite Floyd classics from across the years that otherwise would simply not be heard together in a concert setting.

Even the original members of Pink Floyd have weighed in with positive reviews of their musical doppelgangers. Former Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason called the group "very good, probably better than we are." And David Gilmour hired the group to play his 50th birthday celebration, saying that they were "a show that truly embraces the Floyd legacy." The group is simply a master of their craft, as comprehensively demonstrated with this new, stunning television special and live tour.
