With a show said to be as lavish as the original band's 1970s performances, Canada's Pink Floyd tribute band PIGS is soon to take to the stage in Vernon.

Unlike the British progressive rock band Pink Floyd, which formed in 1965 and spit up in 2014, PIGS formed in Victoria in 2008 and has since spent a decade performing to sold-out audiences across Canada.

"Using authentic equipment, the band goes to great lengths to recreate the sound and live concert experience of Pink Floyd’s 70s era," a PIGS media release says. "Pink Floyd's live show was always a huge part of their appeal – and PIGS have been working to keep that experience alive for generations to come."

PIGS Vernon concert takes place May 21 and will be their final night of a 15 show cross Canada tour and one of only two stops in B.C.

The concerts will feature hit songs from the mid-70s Pink Floyd era along with songs from The Wall, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and Animals, and others.

The band goes to great lengths to recreate the sound and live concert experience of Pink Floyd’s 70s era and plays with the backdrop of a giant screen and features all the lasers and the dramatic lighting of a stadium performance by Pink Floyd.

The concert takes place at the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre May 21 and tickets cost $49.50.
