Pink Droyd is bringing their “A Tribute to the Sights and Sounds of Pink Floyd” show to the Sweetwater Performance Pavilion on the evening of Friday, Sept. 23. 

The appearance of Pink Droyd has become an annual event at Sweetwater, complete with a laser light show and a night full of timeless Pink Floyd hits and deep cuts. 

“In my humble opinion, the Sweetwater Pavilion is the absolute best place to experience the band and the amazing light show,” guitarist Ken Jehle said. “If you enjoy Pink Floyd, then don’t miss this show.” 

That statement holds true since you won’t experience a better tribute that brings the look, feel, and sound of the legendary Floyd. 

Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, April 15, at 10 a.m. at the Sweetwater campus and online at

sweetwaterpavilion.com and ticketmaster.com.
