Saturday, September 9, 2017 Pigs On a Wing at Revolution Hall

Pigs on the Wing brings an intense, high energy experience to the table that is both true to the original and unapologetic in its interpretation, something which the band members believe has set it apart from the other tributes from the very beginning. Since its inception in 2006 as a one-off performance of Dark Side of the Moon, to the band’s current touring production which has included live renditions of the infamous Wizard of Oz sync, full performances of multiple Floyd albums, and music from every era of Pink Floyd’s career, Pigs on the Wing heavily emphasizes the rock dynamics and psychedelic intensity of 1970s era Floyd.
