One of the world’s largest premier live concert experiences - Beyond the Darkside - is finally coming to both Auckland and Wellington for a one night only special performance. Staging a 3 hour live spectacular that both captures the essence and recreates all the excitement of Pink Floyd’s Live 1996 Pulse concert - a concert that never actually came to this part of the world.
Beyond the Darkside’s all-new “A Finger On The Pulse” tour features all the songs from the Pulse tour, along with other songs that were not included in either of the DVD or CD formats. This tour will be the biggest production the BTDS team has ever presented in their now 20-year history. This will be the first time ever that New Zealand audiences will have the chance to attend a Beyond the Darkside production - a show unrivalled by any other its kind in the world, in relation to its production value. “We are bringing the whole show to New Zealand, not a scaled down version.” said Kevin Hunt the show’s producer / guitarist /singer. “We only do shows in a certain way or we just don’t bother. This tour will be even more special as it is Beyond the Darkside’s 20th anniversary in 2011.
In typical Pink Floyd (& Beyond the Darkside) tradition the show will feature a 10-piece band accompanied by a massive production based on the 1996 Pulse look and design, consisting of a multi-arched trussing system covered by a massive digital light show, some new and powerful full colour laser systems, inflatable 20 foot pigs, projection, ‘Hey Teacher’ lighting and other PF props. The band’s sound is presented in 80,000 watts of digital 5.1 surround sound.
Beyond The Dark Side recreates the psychedelic visual display and acoustic dimensions of an original Pink Floyd concert experience, capturing the imagination and artistry to which Pink Floyd fans have become accustomed. Their stage productions have grown to be some of the largest productions held in theatre and have garnered rave reviews and accolades, building on a reputation for going far beyond the standards of any similar act with its authentic sound and near perfect rendering of the original spectacle.
The Sydney Opera House Concert Hall production staged last year was labelled one of the most extravagant sound & lighting displays ever witnessed at the Sydney Opera House.
In all aspects Beyond the Darkside continues to strive to present its audience with a realistic experience of what a Pink Floyd concert experience was like - as most of you would know they rarely visited this part of the world. Everyone in the Beyond the Darkside camp is extremely excited with the new show and hopes the show will thrill everyone who sees it.
