The Machine re-creates the sights and sounds of Pink Floyd concerts from the ’70s and '80s, drawing praise from Spin for its likeness to the real deal. For the past 20 years, the band has extracted hits and obscure gems from Pink Floyd's 16-album catalog, polishing each until it gleams like diamond-studded braces. Known for improvisational jams and performances of entire Floyd albums, the quartet has become a staple at festivals around the world, including Bonnaroo in the US and Rock of Ages in Germany. Fans will experience the dazzling onstage performance from mezzanine-level seats as the act unveils dramatic videos and light displays. "Time," "Money," and other tunes from Pink Floyd's psychedelic 1973 classic, The Dark Side of the Moon, are likely to rule the show, as The Machine just released its own rendition of the album during a trip to Mars.
A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. "The auditorium is, in its chaste way," architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater's website, "the handsomest of any Boston playhouse."
