The Australian Pink Floyd are arguably one of the best tribute bands of all time, and here they are in concert at the Hammersmith Apollo, London in 2011.

I saw them live with some buddies while fried out of our minds. They donít look the part, but are a dead ringer as far as sound goes.

I'm watching the Australian Pink Floyd show right now. They are so good, they sound just like the real thing. It's a great light show too! Smile

My favorite is Canada's "Musical Box," they have the Gabriel-era Genesis stage look AND music down perfectly!

I go to see them every year as they are constantly touring. They have it off to perfection although it would be better to go and catch one of their shows than watch an old video imo.

I only wish I could find a good quality concert by The Musical Box to post here, but all of the poor quality videos I've seen  on YouTube look as if they've been filmed on someone's camera phone in the audience.
 
I did find this though.....

I thought Steve Hackett had the best tribute band. No?

So who did have the best tribute band?

The only time The Aussie Floyd came to Barcelona I was away on a business trip and missed them, dammit !! All my friends say it was such a good show and that they sounded so awesome.

I've seen The Musical Box 3 or 4 times, indeed one of the best tribute bands out there. They've got all the genuine atrezzo used by Genesis at the time and they sound excellent.

A few weeks ago I went to a concert by 2YY2, a Spanish Rush tribute band, they were quite ok.

I've also seen Letz Zep (Zeppelin tribute, quite good), Regenesis (another tribute band of Gabriel-era Genesis) and surely some others I don't remember right now.

But the best Rush cover I've seen is the full Permanent Waves album by Tyler Warren:

I went to see The Musical Box last year (or was it the year before) and they played most of Lamb Lies Down Broadway Part One and I loved that. The 'fudging' of material from Trick and W&W didn't work quite as well to my ears but a fun gig nevertheless.

Brit Floyd is also worth checking out. I won't post any links here, but there is a lot of stuff from them on YouTube.

for who likes Queen:
They have 4 different singers as replacing Freddy isn't an easy task, but the symphonic orchestra behind is excellent.

I've seen them twice and they were excellent on both occasions. They do a laser show and also perform Dogs regularly which Aussie Floyd tend to avoid.

The best Floyd tribute band (when neither Gilmour nor Waters are touring) is Saucerful Of Secrets.

The best Genesis tribute band is Steve Hackett

The best Yes tribute band is Yes, followed by Yes, featuring Anderson, Rabin & Wakeman

The best Hawkwind tribute band is Hawkwind, followed by Nik Turner's Space Ritual, followed by The Hawklords (probably, I've never heard them)

[...you get the general idea...]

Got a bar close to me, where they have tribute bands every Friday and Saturday.
Go there pretty regularly, and always have a good time.
Seen Genesis,Deep Purple,Black Sabbath,Bob Seger,Queen,Van Halen,Little Feet,David Bowie,Led Zeppelin( a couple of different ones),Red Hot Chili Peppers,Pink Floyd,Van Morrison,Tom Petty,Johnny Cash amongst others.$5-10 to get in  and a couple of brews, and I still walk home with money in my pocket.
Never had a problem with cover bands.

Shake & bake.

These days I'll take Hawklords over Hawkwind.Hawklords sounds like Hawkwind when Calvert were in.

Please stop this. 

We have a whole category on the main Archive where you can add tribute albums and tribute videos to your tiny little hearts content all by yourself without having to get permission or assistance from a grown up  http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=2635" rel="nofollow - http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=2635

Thanks Dean. I've tried to submit albums to the main part of ProgArchives before, but for some unexplained reason, I was unable to. Every time I tried to submit a video I kept getting an error message saying "This page cannot be displayed. Confused

So you thought you'd treat us to them here?

You do know we can search YouTube ourselves don't you?

Well, why not? There must be other members here who like those two tribute albums too. It is a tribute bands thread after all, and any albums posted here have the additional advantage of not being constantly interrupted by YouTube ads. Smile

I asked nicely. You evidently have no intention of stopping so we're done here.

No one's ever complained about me posting YouTube music videos on the forums before. Confused
 
If I could post videos on the main part of the site instead, I would do.

The PINK FLOYD Tribute Show (2011) - Live from Liverpool

Though they do primarily original material, Italy's "The Watch" cover a lot Genesis tracks.  I would be surprised if they didn't start as a Genesis tribute.
