SOLD OUT - PIGS — Canada's Pink Floyd OUTSIDE/IN

PIGS: Canada’s Pink Floyd OUTSIDE / IN Canadian Tour 2018
featuring a complete performance of DARK SIDE

Saturday September 22 2018, Doors 7:00, Show 7:30

Formed in 2008 in Victoria, British Columbia, PIGS: Canada's Most Authentic Pink Floyd Tribute have spent over ten years perfecting their craft in front of sold out audiences throughout Canada. On their Outside / In Canadian Tour, PIGS are celebrating the 45th anniversary of THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON by performing it in its entirety as part of every show. After years of playing songs from throughout Pink Floyd’s vast catalogue, PIGS are excited to dig deep into the crucial years of 1970—1975 on this tour to really explore the history around some of the greatest music ever set to tape. As if that wasn't enough, the band will also be performing selections from the rest of the Floyd discography, including a few special surprises from Floyd solo records!

Using authentic gear the band recreates the sound and live concert experience of 70s era Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd's live show was always a huge part of their appeal – and PIGS have been working to keep that experience alive for generations to come. They have the voices, the mannerisms, the instruments, the lights, lasers, visuals, and the sound. The band and their crew are all Floyd aficionados and are thrilled to create for you an incredible night filled with music and the glow of a giant Mr Screen.

PIGS is the most authentic Floyd tribute act around, here to give you an incredible musical experience you will never forget.

David Bowie is one of music history's most praised and successful artists, with a career that has spanned four decades. Bowie continuously sought to re-invent himself, while selling an estimated 140 million albums. His genre-defying journey through a vast array of musical styles, from rock to funk, dance to ballad, always kept fans guessing what he would do next.

Since the early 80's, Syl Thompson has been paying tribute to David Bowie's music with respect and pride. Thompson embodies Bowie’s musical style and persona; in fact, he has been acclaimed as providing the most credible and realistic Bowie experience in North America.

A Night Of Bowie is a celebration of Bowie's extensive list of memorable hits, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on his peak years from the early '70s to the early '90s. The show is eerily close to hearing and seeing Bowie himself.

"A Night of Bowie did not disappoint" - Fraser Valley News

"A 'near- Bowie experience'" - Steve Heywood (Black Press)

Come celebrate the life & music of David Bowie

The Comic Strippers

THE COMIC STRIPPERS A male stripper parody and improv comedy show
May 25, 2019, 7:30pm

The award winning improv comedians are back with a new show, more moves and even quicker wits.


WARNING! No extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity.

A fictitious male stripper troupe (played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians) performs a sexylarious improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh.

Semi undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.

Winner of 'BEST LIVE PRODUCTION' at The Canadian Comedy Awards 2016

★★★★★ “Extremely Funny!” - UK Fringe Review

“The show is suitable for both men and women. An entertaining ride where anything goes.” – Rip It Up Magazine

"One of the most hilarious shows I've ever seen." - Vancouver Sun
