Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink Floyd's music steeped in the NW's own rich musical heritage. All members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original NW rock scene and balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd's music in many fans' lives. The result is a sound and experience both refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original - something the band believes sets it apart from other Pink Floyd tributes.
Wish You Were Here: Following the highly acclaimed Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd captivate us with another masterpiece in Wish You Were Here, this time delving deep into a heady and spacious pallet of songs with themes of distaste towards the music business and alienation as well as a prominent tribute to founding member Syd Barrett. WYWH represents Pink Floyd's best with lush compositions, intense beauty and dark overtones all with the courage to venture into a more experimental approach to their music. Fans can expect Pigs on the Wing to deliver a precise, hard-hitting, true-to-the-music performance of the classic 1975 'Wish You Were Here' album melded seamlessly with Pigs on the Wing's trademark willingness to explore the improvisational side of Pink Floyd's music - and to let their own musical strengths guide the journey. In addition, this year's production will showcase a full second set of carefully curated Pink Floyd music from throughout the Roger Waters era - including the hits and some deep cuts as well. In the spirit of Pink Floyd, Pigs on the Wing's Wish You Were Here 2020 production features a multidimensional visual and sonic representation of Floyd's extravagant and immersive live show experience that is not to be missed.
