Pink Floyd’s blend of rock, blues, jazz, classical, and ambient music with dazzling multimedia effects ranks them as one of the world¹s greatest bands whose influence is still felt today. Their high-concept, operatic albums were ambitious and original, and their concerts forever changed the nature of live performance.
However, it is probably fair to say that Pink Floyd’s music enjoyed a higher profile than the band members themselves. Preferring to make music rather than headlines, this rather elusive group avoided the public eye, unlike many of their more starry-eyed contemporaries. Pink Floyd Revealed tells the extraordinary story of how a rather ordinary psychedelic band managed to become something different, ending up with spectacular sold-out arena shows and multi-million-dollar selling albums. Find out more about Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright, their albums, movie soundtracks, side-projects and reunions, and accompany them on a journey from their earliest days in Cambridge to rock legend status.
