The Pink Floyd tribute band PIGS performs in Abbotsford on July 31.

PIGS – considered Canada’s most authentic Pink Floyd tribute band – bring their sounds to the Abbotsford Arts Centre (2329 Crescent Way) on Sunday, July 31.

The band will cover 47 years worth of Pink Floyd’s legendary repertoire from 1967 to 2014, ranging from the band’s earliest release to their final album; from the psychedelic misadventures of Arnold Layne to the final float down The Endless River.

In addition to classics from legendary albums such as Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall, the band have many surprises in store, including material that has rarely, if ever, been performed live by the real Pink Floyd.

PIGS, formed seven years ago, recreate the Pink Floyd sound with authentic gear and accurate live renditions of the songs.

Every last detail of the look, sound and feel of Pink Floyd’s classic era is meticulously worked out and perfected, and each band member assumes the role of their Floyd counterpart.

With the passing of keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008, fans of Pink Floyd lost hope of ever again seeing their favourite band reunited. PIGS offer the next best thing – an authentic look back into the past of one of the world’s most timeless bands.

Doors for the Abbotsford all-ages show open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30. Tickets are available online at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca or by calling 604-391-7469.
