A weekend of shows:
Well, what a weekend - two festivals, two great shows and two great crowds.
First up on Saturday night we had the Woodhill Woodstock Festival - a fantastic charity festival just down the road from WoF HQ. A short set on the Magic Bus Stage before we headed off into the night to Oxford on Sunday and the Cowley Carnival...
50,000 people descend on Cowley Road in Oxford for two days of carnival fun. We played the stage at the Black Swan Pub. We played to a massive crowd and there were a fair few stand out moments - the crown singing along to Comfortably Numb was particularly special.
We've got plenty more shows coming up this year and the keen eyed amongst you that follow us on Facebook will have seen we're already announcing dates for next year. 2018 promises to be our biggest and best yet. Thanks to everyone who's come and seen us so far in 2017. For everyone else, we'll see you on the dark side of the moon soon....
Ferneham Hall show 30th March 2017....
What a great night at Ferneham Hall! We always love playing there and the capacity crowd were amazing, as always.
You can check out the photos here:
New year, new songs, and new lights!
Happy 2017 fellow Floydians....we're getting the gear ready to hit the road and today we've had a delivery into WoF HQ of some additional lights to add to the show....
Here they are coming off (and not falling off) the back of a lorry.....
We've also got some sunglasses on order, as we've got 34 intelligent lights as part of the 2017 show so we're sure it's going to look amazing. Along with some new songs, some new band members (and plenty of old members too!), and some new video, we're excited about what is going to be our biggest production yet.
If you want to come along to a show and see for yourself, why not check out our tour dates and get yourself some tickets....
2017 shows....and a new setlist (or two!)
Here at WoF HQ we're working hard getting ready for next year with some new songs going into the set, and a new show being planned with more lights and some new visuals. We can't wait to get out and show you all what we've been working on.
We don't to give too much away, but we can reveal that we're still playing some classic Floyd - we wouldn't want to stop playing the hits, but for 2017 we're adding a couple of songs from Animals (we always hear people shouting for 'Sheep' when we play shows, so that might just be in the setlist).
We've got more shows on the horizon, and we'll keep you all updated as and when we get them confirmed.
The Wall of Floyd can't wait to get back out and see old and new fans alike across the UK in 2017.
Barnfield Theatre Show cancelled....UPDATED!
*** PLEASE NOTE, THIS SHOW HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO FRIDAY 3RD MARCH 2017 ***
Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the gig at the Barnfield Theatre tomorrow night has been cancelled.
Everyone at WoF HQ is gutted as we loved playing there last year and were looking forward to closing off our 2016 tour with you all.
But there is some good news! We'll be back next year at the beginning of March 2017 to play for you lovely people. We've already got plans for a new show, with new visuals, lights, and of course more classic Floyd songs we've not performed before.
For anyone who has purchased a ticket for tomorrow, it'll be valid for our show next year, or you can contact the box office at the Barnfield Theatre.
We'll get the rescheduled date out on Facebook and on our website as soon as possible. Apologies again to anyone who's bought a ticket.
New show dates for 2017!
Over at Wall of Floyd HQ we've been busy getting dates booked for 2017 for our Earth And Space Tour 2017
We've got some new venues in the pipeline along with some of our favourite venues from 2015 and 2016 making a re-appearance....
If you know a venue we haven't been to yet and you want to see us, why not let us know the details through our Contact section on the website:
In the meantime, we've got just one more gig of 2016 left (although we're always open to offers of more before the end of the year!) at the Barnfield Theatre in Exeter on the 22nd October and there's tickets still available.
