WORLD TOUR 1994 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - NOVEMBER 30 1993 After a lapse of five years, Pink Floyd touchdown with a new album, ground-breaking show and a substantial European Tour, taking in more than 29 shows in 18 countries commencing in July 1994. Pink Floyd make no use of video, concentrating on an array of extraordinary special effects, using both the stage and the audience itself. Key visual aspects of the show were conceived by the band, Production Designer Mark Fisher and Marc Brickman. Mark Fisher is renowned for his remarkable set designs, including such epics as Pink Floyd's "The Wall", the Stones Steel Wheels set and tours for U2, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, George Michael and Simply Red. Marc Brickman, the show's director and Lightning Designer, has credits which include Bruce Springsteen, the Nelson Mandela tribute concert, the Barcelona Olympics and Arnold Schwarzeneggar's movie The Running Man. Along with the band he has devised an extraordinary light show, including lasers which have been banned in certain parts of the world because they are reputedly strong enough to split the atom! David Gilmour comments, "Everyone involved in the creation of the show meets up on a weekly basis to design and create the show in 'brainstroming sessions' to produce what we hope will be the ultimate live spectacle." It is a massive production and the stage is one of the largest and most complex ever devised. A number of identical stages will be built for use in alternative cities, leap-frogging around the continent courtesy of a massive fleet of ground transportation. The stage takes 48 trucks of steel, 3 days and 120 men to erect. The last time Pink Floyd, who incidentally will be rehearsing in the world's biggest aircraft hangar, came into our orbit was the 1987/89 "Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour", which lasted 19 months, and played 200 shows to 5.5 million people. The tour voyaged around Europe, including Russia and the legendary free show floating on a barge in the Venice lagoon. Pink Floyd have sold a total of 140 million records worldwide including the third best seller of all time at 28 million copies, "The Dark Side of the Moon", which at over 700 weeks in the Billboard charts, is the longest running US chart album ever. Pink Floyd have set the controls for the heart of the 21st Century.
