And the Coventry-based nine-piece are proud of their longevity.

The band’s long-serving bass player Steve Chilton said: “It’s hard to believe we’ve done 20 years but the fact that we keep doing what we do, year on year, is testament not just to the timeless music of Pink Floyd, but also to the fact that we simply love what we do.

“We’ve had some inevitable line-up changes over the years but each time we’ve brought someone in new it has always given us fresh impetus and we just keep on going. Personally, the thought of not playing Pink Floyd music to like-minded Floyd fans isn’t ever something I’d like to contemplate.”

Now working with a new lighting and visual effects crew, this year’s show promises to be more spectacular than ever.

Steve added: “One of our great selling points is this fact that we love what we do – and aren’t afraid to let the audience know that.

“Pink Floyd’s music and persona is often perceived as quite serious but whilst we perform their music with the love and respect it deserves, we’re fully aware that we’re not Pink Floyd and would always prefer that we bring our own personalities to the stage.

“Playing this music is great fun and hopefully the audience pick up on that when they see the band fully committed to what they do and loving every moment of every song.”
