The Australian Pink Floyd Show will be returning to stage with four new shows where a number of tickets will be made available for free for NHS workers for a 24-hour period.

Selling 3.5 million tickets worldwide and described by The Times as “The Gold Standard” and The Daily Mirror as “The Kings of the Genre”, The Australian Pink Floyd Show gave its first ever concert in Adelaide, Australia in 1988.

Since then, they have performed in over 35 countries worldwide; played at David Gilmour’s 50th birthday celebration and were even joined on stage by Rick Wright. The Australian Pink Floyd show is the leading and biggest show of its kind in the world.

Those eligible for tickets will be all NHS frontline staff that work within NHS hospitals across the United Kingdom including, but not limited to, doctors, nurses, support workers, ambulance staff, porters and cleaners.

Any staff that work within the hospital will be eligible to apply for tickets.Eligible NHS staff members are entitled to bring one guest with them but will need two tickets - one for them and one for their guest.

Ticket applications must only be made by the NHS or frontline member of staff who must bring their valid NHS or Primary Care Trust ID card or staff ID Card - original format, no photocopies - to the show, as ticket checks will be in operation.
