The Australian Pink Floyd Show brought “The Dark Side of the Moon Tour” to Artpark in Lewiston on Wednesday. Pink Floyd’s eighth studio album was celebrated in its 50th anniversary year.
Prior to the concert, lead singer Chris Barnes told NFP, “Floyd’s mu- sic, if you see the Beatles as like the untouchable band at the top of the tree, and then you’ve got your Zeppelins, and all these other big bands, Floyd are kind of in their own category, really, because their music style, you can’t just say, ‘Oh, it’s a rock band,’ or ‘Oh, it’s a psychedelic band,’ because their music is so vast, and so different, and so wide-reaching.
“And once Roger (Waters) got a hold of the lyrics, ‘Dark Side’ on- wards, once Roger sort of got the bit between his teeth and he had some- thing to say, then the lyrics really speak to people.
“I have an 18-year-old daughter, and a lot of her friends at college are into Pink Floyd; and they’ve discovered and listen to what the lyrics are about on ‘Dark Side.’ It does resonate to anybody, at any age.”
