Pink Floyd has never been a band to do things by halves. From the 1971 performance amidst the ruins of Pompeii to the star-studded concert atop the remnants of the Berlin Wall, their over-the-top live shows have become the most talked about events in the history of rock.

At sunset on the first day of February 2014, New Zealanders will get a taste of such events when Eclipse - the country’s top Pink Floyd tribute show, pay homage to the legend of Pink Floyd by staging a sight and sound spectacular at Stonehenge Aotearoa in the beautiful surrounds of the Wairarapa valley.

Featuring a state of the art Quadraphic Surround Sound System and the kind of lighting effects that Pink Floyd themselves would be proud of, the concert will see the full-sized adaptation of the ancient stone circle transformed in a blaze of colour and light as Eclipse play selections from The Wall, Wish You Were Here, Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell as well as performing classic album Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety.

For Wairarapa locals and all those visiting the region on this weekend for the Martinborough Fair, the concert will be the perfect way to end a glorious Summer’s day. Because of the intimate and rural nature of the setting, ticket numbers are limited to just two thousand. Food and drink will be available onsite and a special transport & ticket package will be announced shortly.

This will be a live show like no other – a combination of stunning sounds, amazing visual effects and the magical and mystical location of Stonehenge. Add in the music of one of the world’s greatest ever bands and you have the kind of evening that is truly unmissable.

Gates open at 4pm.
Pre-show entertainment from 5:30pm
No BYO Alcohol.
No Camping

If you are wondering about how you are going to get to Stonehenge and back while still being able to enjoy a few drinks (the cops will be out in force and there is nowhere to camp).
The lovely people at Tranzit have put together some travel options for you so you don't need to worry about driving, or getting stuck in a traffic jam afterwards.

Tranzit will pick you up from Martinborough, Featherston, Carterton or Masterton and drop you back there at the end, there are two bus routes, one for South and one for North.
The North bus route will depart AFTER the Tui Hurricanes game from just down the road, so you can enjoy the full game and walk less than 5 minutes down the road to the bus pickup point.
