When it comes to visual effects, no rock band could ever rival Pink Floyd. From psychedelic light shows to The Wall, Pink Floyd stands alone among visually creative rock bands.
Now they’re getting recognized by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
If you’re going to be in London any time between now and Oct. 1, you can “experience a spectacular and unparalleled audio-visual journey through Pink Floyd’s unique and extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music, design and staging of the band, from their debut in the 1960s through to the present day,” the V&A website says.
Among the highlights:
- Animals album cover art, by Roger Waters, from 1977.
- Azimuth coordinator used onstage at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, from 1967, made by Bernard Speight.
- Flower petal mirrorball stage prop, from 1973.
