In a show lasting over two hours, witness a level of musicianship that is second to none ensuring MacFloyd’s position as arguably the best Pink Floyd cover band in the UK. Fans are in for a spectacular display of 70s psychedelia, lasers and special effects. Mac Floyd will perform the quintessential Floyd classics in their entirety. ‘Time’, ‘Money’, ‘The Great Gig in the Sky’, and ‘Eclipse’ are all featured in this evocative set. Other parts of the set will feature a selection of Floyd tracks from albums such as Meddle, Wish You Were Here, The Wall and The Division Bell. Along with an improved light show, the band take great pride in performing all the Floyd numbers with accuracy and detail thanks to a talented line up including up to three different lead/backing vocalists and guitarists performing with great passion. MacFloyd will take you on a journey which promises to transport you back to those spectacular times if only for a night. Main Theatre, Gaiety Theatre, Carrick Street, Ayr.

Don’t miss your chance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of when it all began. Featuring record breaking Merseybeat band Gerry & The Pacemakers. Also from Liverpool and tipped to be as big as The Beatles, The Searchers’ first single also went to No. 1 and led to five more Top 5 hits and a total of 128 weeks in the charts. Controversial, ponytailed P.J. Proby, whose trouser splitting shocked the nation, was a Melody Maker teen idol award winner in 1964 and spent 91 weeks in the charts. The Fortunes stormed the Top 10 with You’ve Got Your Troubles, Here It Comes Again, Freedom Come Freedom Go and Storm in a Teacup. And finally, Brian Poole and Chip Hawkes. On stage together. 18TH DG1 Hoods Loaning, Dumfries.
