[A preview by Elisa F. G. – AC]

In 2017 a portal opened, granting access into the mind of true iconoclastic brilliance, since then people around the world have been immersing themselves into the experience that is Pink Floyd. Having opened in London, then quickly gaining global traction The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains has made it everywhere from Madrid to Montreal and its next stop is Toronto. Tickets go on sale May 26th at 10am, how can you have any pudding if you don’t buy tickets?

Arrive in 1967 during the bands formative years, travel through the underground scene, delve into the history being made and see it all through their eyes. With over 350 artifacts and a multi-sensory design, Toronto fans will be able to chronologically follow Pink Floyd and connect with the music, art, design, and sound technology that gave us legendary albums such as The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, and The Division Bell. With over 500 000 visitors worldwide, The Pink Floyd Exhibition promises an audio-visual gateway and retrospect fans never knew they needed and it all begins June 16th, 2023 at the Better Living Centre Exhibition Place.

“After a hugely successful run in Montreal this past year, it was time to bring The Pink Floyd Exhibition to Toronto to rock the summer,” said Michael Cohl, Executive Producer of the exhibition and Canadian Promoter of Pink Floyd. “It’s only fitting since Pink Floyd has such strong ties to the city, notably the sold out 1987 shows that launched the next phase of their storied career. I am thrilled to be able to present this exhibition in my hometown where we can all celebrate Pink Floyd’s legacy.”

Every tour needs a tour guide and who better to guide fans than Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and David Gilmour? An intuitive audio guide system leads the way through the chapters of the bands history, from formation to the final performance. 2023 marks 50 years since the release of The Dark Side of the Moon, culture buffs and music fans alike can celebrate the milestone by slipping into the mind of the greatest progressive rock band of all time.

[Editor’s note: I saw this exhibition in its original incarnation at the V&A Museum a couple of years back and it was great. I’ll be conducting a private personal tour of Their Mortal Remains for listeners of Q107/Toronto. Details Monday at Q107.com. – AC]
