Jeff Parry Promotions and Greatest Albums Live (GAL) are back with their next presentation of legendary rock albums brought to life on stage. Following the great reception of Led Zeppelin IV and AC/DC’s Back in Black, GAL brings you an all new show featuring the talents of The Pink Floyd Experience.

GAL will tackle their eighth studio album, Dark Side of the Moon, released on 1 March 1973. It built on ideas explored in Pink Floyd’s earlier recordings and performances. In addition to Dark Side of the Moon, all of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits are performed live, including favorites like ‘Have a Cigar’, ‘Learning To Fly’, ‘Comfortable Numb’, ‘Run Like Hell’ and many rarities not often heard live. Without question, Pink Floyd remains one of the most influential rock bands of all time.

You memorized the records, you know the songs, now experience them in this unique concert experience LIVE… ONE NIGHT, FRONT TO BACK from our world-class band. Led by PFX’s frontman Tom Quinn, along with six outstanding musicians, PFX’s heartfelt and passionate recreation of Dark Side of the Moon will not disappoint.

Every note has been poured over with excruciating detail, no riff left un-played, no sound left uncaptured. Celebrate some of the greatest rock and roll songs ever written and don’t miss this unique and unforgettable concert experience!

Rolston Quartet Makes PEI Debut

From Carnegie Hall to Confederation Centre

World-renowned Rolston String Quartet is coming to Charlottetown, February 21

The Rolston String Quartet is bringing a storm of classical music to the Mack next Thursday, February 21 for Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre. After playing sold-out shows across the world, this Canadian group is ready to make their Island debut. A storm of virtuosic perfection awaits!

The Rolston String Quartet was formed more than five years ago and is made up former students of The Glenn Gould School in Toronto. The quartet was recently featured on CBC’s list of the hottest classical acts under 30 and have received the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America, just to name a few accomplishments.

“All of this has been exhilarating–it’s been a dream come true,” says Jonathan Lo, cellist with the Quartet. “It’s something we couldn’t have imagined when we first got together and we’re blessed to continue performing together.”

Just this past December, the Rolston String Quartet played a sold-out show at Carnegie Hall in New York City and are performing at London’s Wigmore Hall later this year. The group have toured extensively through Europe, Canada, the U.S. and Israel, performing at such venues as the Smithsonian, Kennedy Centre, and Austria’s Esterhazy Palace.  The Quartet also began recording their first album last month before beginning a North America-wide tour, including their first ever performance on Prince Edward Island.

“It should be an interesting mix of music, including a program bookended by classics,” adds Lo, when asked about their upcoming live show. “Plus, we’ll be performing Murray Schafer’s ‘Waves’, which is perfect for the Maritimes. It’s very evocative of the sights and sounds of the area.”

The Rolston String Quartet performs at the Mack on February 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $26, plus fees and taxes, and are available at the door, at Confederation Centre’s box office, online at confederationcentre.com, or via phone at 902-566-1267 (toll free at 1-800-565-0278.)

Special thanks are extended to The Accelerando Classical Music Performance Fund, the production sponsor for this performance, and Sobeys, the title sponsor for LIVE @ the Centre! Media sponsors are The Guardian, Ocean 100, and Hot 105.5. The Centre wishes to acknowledge the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their continued support.
