P-Floyd @ Arenabolaget (2)

What a show!
'Wish you were here'

More than 2 hours of great music and spectacular lightshow with video backgrounds... I didn't expect them to be that good! Each of the musician was really talented. As far as I know the original Pink Floyd's songs, they quite stuck to them. Although they have their own interpretations.


For instance, they created a fun intro of Money, using different kinda tools and instruments. I thought it was very original. It kinda broke the ice between the public and the band. Later on, they also played their own opera version of The Wall. It showed me that they really have good voices ;)

'The Wall'

Actually, I have to point out that the public was sitting for the whole concert. It's sort of a Swedish thing. But the seats of the Konsert & Kongress were really sweet... Can't complain! I felt like being in a movie theater, with louder music. I guess that for more rock concerts, the seats are taken away, leaving space for the crowd to dance and jump around more easily.

Of course, we heard all the other famous songs (Comfortably numb, Wish you were here, Another brick in the wall, Hey you, etc.) but they also played more forgotten ones (at least for me) as Pink Floyd's first single 'Arnold Layne'.

The acoustic was really good. The lead guitar was very distinctive. The fact they P-Floyd have more members than the original band, allow them to be more rich. That's why they have 2 keyboards and 2 choirs. It gives a new version (interpretation) of the originals, that were very much appreciated by the public!

All in all, it was a really good concert!

I definitely recommend you to check their website for upcoming gigs, even though you're not a big Pink Floyd fan, it's worth it!
