Animals In Cleveland

  World Series Of Rock




It was the biggest concert ever, and now it's happening again.

In June 1977, Pink Floyd drew more than 83,000 fans to Municipal Stadium, setting a world attendance record for a one-act show at the time.

On Saturday, July 16, Cleveland-based Floyd-tribute act Wish You Were Here will reenact that
concert at Scene Pavilion, complete with a giant inflatable pig.

"It's brilliant to take that show and recreate it.

And those guys do a good job," says Bill Louis, program director of classic-rock stronghold WNCX-FM 98.5.
"The tour for Wish You Were Here, the follow-up to Dark Side of the Moon, didn't come to town.

This was really the first Cleveland gathering for fans after the band's coronation as a rock superpower.

It was one of the most remarkable shows in Cleveland history."

Unlike the original concert, this show will not start with a plane buzzing the venue, but it will incorporate quadraphonic sound, lasers, and copies of the original backing video clips.

The lineup will comprise eight people, including two female singers.

The band will play 1975's Wish You Were Here and 1977's Animals in their entirety, followed by "Money" and "Us and Them" from 1972's Dark Side of the Moon, as well as some other surprise favorites.
