WYEP Presents: David Gray at the Benedum

Join WYEP in celebrating a performance by singer-songwriter David Gray at the Benedum this fall!

Twenty one years since his first studio album, David Gray’s tenth and latest, Mutineers, finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. “I think if you’re going forward with an open heart, good things will happen,” says David. “You have to sort of tear up the past and let it go.”

 

David’s past includes the phenomenal success of White Ladder (seven million copies sold), one of three UK number one albums, with records that became ubiquitous and others that needed to be sought out to be heard. It’s a richness of terrain and experience over a duration that belies the traditions and expectations of popular music as surely as the songs themselves.

 

Despite such variance in both the content and reception of his prior output, the only certainty David had at the commencement of his new recording was the need to surprise himself, not just in terms of how he worked, but the ideas that drove him and the people he worked with.

Get ready for an audiovisual extravaganza courteous of The Australian Pink Floyd Show. Featuring a million dollar light show, multiple inflatables and stunning laser effects, all coupled with note perfect renditions of Pink Floyd’s biggest hits. This show already seen by 4 million people is simply the best.

Taking its tour title from “Set The Controls for the Heart Of the Sun” from the A Saucerful of Secrets album, The Australian Pink Floyd Show will be performing Pink Floyd classics such as “Another Brick In The Wall”, “Comfortably Numb” and “Wish You Were Here”, as well as a few surprise tracks.

She also performed “The Great Gig in the Sky” with Pink Floyd, a song she will now perform with TAPFS.
