This summer the band arrives here with a special performance of “The Wall,” Pink Floyd’s 1979 double-album tribute to isolation. (“Hey, teacher! Leave those kids alone!” ... Yeah, that rock radio staple. You know it.) Aside from the spot-on musicianship, Wish You Were Here’s performance of “The Wall” offers a visual feast that takes the production far beyond the realm of mere concert. It includes video projection, costumed characters and, yes, one enormous white brick wall that slowly builds between the band and the audience over the course of the evening.
To call it ambitious is an understatement. But Wish You Were Here bassist and vocalist Eroc Sosinski and his eight-piece ensemble has raised the concept of a tribute band to an art form. Having only performed “The Wall” nine times in four cities, buying a ticket guarantees you’re in for something special.
