Gibfloyd on stage
GIBFLOYD will be headlining a very special event to be held at the MUGA Sports Complex located within the Victoria Stadium complex on Friday August 5 with doors opening at 4.30pm, a happy hour and a half at the bar until 6pm and performances in the chill-out area from 5pm with local acoustic acts Mark Montegriffo, Ethan Rocca, Butch Sundance and Layla Bugeja.
Action will commence on the main stage at around 6pm with Reggae band Heritage (who recently supported Maxi Priest) and then there will be an appearance by After Hours.
What will follow can only be described as a life experience as Gibfloyd present their three hour audio/visual show which includes special effects, animation, pyrotechnics and some very special surprises imported specially from China.
One of those behind the show Jay Jenson told Euro Weekly News “After three years of sold out shows and headlining the GMF Seaside Stage in 2015, we are very proud to finally offer the Gibfloyd Chronology event for everyone to enjoy… this could be the final show so we decided to go all out in terms of stage, special effects, custom animations, lasers and other surprises.
This is the highest technical show in Gibraltar and we aim to make it the most technically challenging one yet and we are extremely proud to welcome Paul Isola (from Breed 77) as guest performer on the evening! If you like Pink Floyd then you will love Gibfloyd.
Come down and spend an incredible day and evening with amazing music, food and drink and finish it off with the most complete Floyd show anyone has ever reproduced in the South of Spain!….Don’t wait too long or we might sell out of tickets!”
Speaking of tickets, they are priced at a very reasonable £25 or following the latest trends, VIP tickets which have been selling fast are £50. Bookings can be made in Gibraltar at Music Corner on Main Street, Parilla on the Go on Cornwall’s Parade or for those outside of Gibraltar or too lazy to go to either outlet, they can be purchased online at on www.buytickets.gi or if you can’t manage that, you can turn up and purchase on the door (although it will be a little more expensive). Accompanied children under 12 will be admitted free.
Seven of the Pink Floyd’s best known albums will be covered in this spectacular mix of sound and vision, so there is every chance that apart from ‘several species of small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a pict’ your favourite number will receive the Gibfloyd treatment.
