Lasers and flying pigs...

Thank you Näsilinnan venetsialaiset! It was a blast.

If you think Pink Floyd, there´s really nothing new about lasers and flying pigs. But for us it was the first time we had such an amount of lasers, and as you can guess, we were pretty excited! Our inflatable pig Eugene also took a flight above the audience (as he did in Pakkahuone), and survived with only minor damage. Doing better than our first pig Arnold, who passed away after the first time we inflated him... The venue was also great and we really weren´t expecting such an amount of people. The rumour has that there was ca. 1000 people all together! Amazing!

Thanks to the ca. 1500 people who attended our show in Keitelejazz @ Äänekoski! It was extremely cool to perform to an audience that most of had never seen us before. Hope to see you in our shows in the future! Also, we wish to give a very special thanks to the organizers. Everything was so smooth and worked like a charm! And the food was good! And the view from the backstage was astounding!

But no time to rest here people! The show must go on! We are already planning our next show, that will happen on saturday August 29th in Näsilinna, Tampere. Tickets can be purchased from tiketti.fi. We do not know the details yet, but we can guarantee, that it will be an amazing show! Last time in Venetsialaiset we had fireworks and a huge ledscreen-thingy. This time we hope it will be even more massive!

Thank you all who attended our show in Pakkahuone to celebrate 50 years of Pink Floyd and Pulse´s 10th anniverary at the same time! It was fun and the band was more relaxed then ever and had a blast on the stage! 

We would also like to give special thanks to 4 Vuodenaikaa and Hullu poro for providing our meals during the whole weekend as well as Sokos Hotel Ilves for providing accommodation for our special guest Durga McBroom.


Now that the Pakkahuone show is done and over we will focus our attention to our next show happening in Keitelejazz, Äänekoski on Friday 24.7. We are very happy that we will be ending the night after such great names as Premiata Forneria Marconi (ITA) and Wishbone Ash (UK). It will be a night full of wonderful music and a sort of time travel trip back to the golden age of progressive rock!

Pink Floyd's Animals @ Pakkahuone 1.3.2014


"Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
You better watch out
There may be dogs about…"

Kotimainen Pink Floyd -tribuuttiorkesteri Pulse esiintyy Tampereen Pakkahuoneella lauantaina 1.3.2014. Noin 2,5 tunnin shown ohjelmassa on useita Pink Floydin klassikkoteoksia sekä näiden lisäksi yksi kokonainen albumi. Tällä kertaa Pulsen käsittelyssä on vuonna 1977 julkaistu konseptialbumi Animals.

Animals on järjestyksessään Pink Floydin 10. studioalbumi. Levyn sanoitukset kertovat eläinlajeista, joita verrataan erilaisiin ihmistyyppeihin ja heidän asemaansa yhteiskunnassa. Konsepti perustuu löyhästi George Orwellin kirjaan Eläinten vallankumous (1945). Animalsilla yhtye otti askeleen kohti yhteiskuntakriittisempää linjaa ja lähestyi teemojen ja musiikkinsa puolesta vuonna 1979 julkaistua monumentaalista The Wall -albumia.

Pulse on vuodesta 2005 toiminut tamperelainen tribuuttiorkesteri, joka on erikoistunut Pink Floydin musiikkiin. Soiton lisäksi yhtye panostaa myös shown visuaaliseen ilmeeseen esikuvansa tavoin. Yhtye keikkailee nykyään harvakseltaan, mutta luvassa on aina mittava show. Aiemmista konserteista mainittakoon loppuunmyyty Pakkahuoneen konsertti helmikuussa 2013, ulkoilmakonsertti Tampereen Venetsialaisilla yli kymmentuhatpäiselle yleisölle elokuussa 2013 sekä tieteiselokuva Avaruuslaivan (1918) livesäestys Tampereen elokuvajuhlilla vuonna 2012.

Viime helmikuun suuren suosion vuoksi suosittelemme yleisiöä hankkimaan liput ajoissa.

Pulse - The Finnish Tribute to Pink Floyd: Animals @ Pakkahuone, Tampere on Saturday March 1st 2014

We are delighted to announce our new Pink Floyd tribute show to take place in Pakkahuone, Tampere on March 1st 2014. In 2012 we had lasers, in 2013 we played for sold out Pakkahuone and in 2014 we plan to have both and even more.

The Finnish Pink Floyd tribute group Pulse performs Pink Floyd's 1977 concept album Animals in its entirety together with assorted classics from other albums of the legendary progressive rock band.

Animals is Pink Floyd’s tenth studio album. Loosely based on the ideas presented by George Orwell in his 1945 dystopian novel Animal Farm, the lyrics of the album portray different human characteristics and reflect the hierarchies and the power relations of the society. Both the themes in the lyrics and the musical style of the group later evolved to the 1979 monumental album The Wall.

Pulse was formed in 2005 in Tampere, Finland. The group specializes in reproducing both the sonic qualities and the visual elements of the original Pink Floyd shows. During the past two years, Pulse has played to a sold out Pakkahuone, to an audience of over 10 000 people in Tampereen Venetsialaiset and also improvised a live soundtrack for the 1918 science fiction movie Himmelskibet in Tampere Film Festival.

After last February's massive success, we highly recommend you to get your tickets in advance, come in numbers and spread the word.

Pulse - The Finnish Tribute to Pink Floyd: Animals
Live at Pakkahuone, Tampere
March 1st 2014

Doors open: 6:30 PM
Showtime: 8:00 PM
