Reaching toward a rock star is a popular way to let them know that, unlike most fans, you appreciate both their musical work and their supple hand skin. Raise the roof with today's GrouponLive deal: for $18, you get one general-admission ticket to see The Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular at Fillmore Auditorium on Friday, October 14, at 8 p.m. (a $35 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and all seating is general admission.
For more than 20 years, a kaleidoscope of lasers has danced and flickered to the psychoacoustic sounds of Pink Floyd's conceptual masterpiece Dark Side of the Moon and classic cuts from The Best of Pink Floyd. As the brilliant beams dart across a dark stage, concertgoers can visually and aurally immerse themselves in emotional tunes such as the heartfelt "The Great Gig in the Sky" and traditional bricklayer anthem "The Wall." During the second half of the show, a multiscreen video projection instills classics with 3-D graphics that transport audiences to the psychedelic marriage of light and sound, complete with holographic grains of rice falling from the ceiling.
The Fillmore Auditorium—founded in 1907 as the Mammoth Roller Rink and renovated in 1999 to evoke the famous Fillmore in San Francisco—has hosted numerous stars and dignitaries on its stage. Although everyone from Marilyn Manson to James Blunt has packed the concert schedule, the space remains an especially popular site for jam bands; Phish mastermind Trey Anastasio christened the revamped venue in 1999 by performing a marathon set.
