A Pink Floyd laser show returning to Lake Tahoe this weekend knows a thing or two about longevity.

The Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular celebrates 30 years in 2016, equaling the Floyd’s original run from 1965-1995.

“In 1986 Paramount’s LaserSpectacular was presented for the first time at the Woodlawn theater in San Antonio, Texas,” according to show organizers. “At the time producer Steve Monistere was staging jazz and blues concerts there. A local laserist, Tim Walsh approached Steve with the idea of staging a laser show. Steve had never seen a laser show but reluctantly agreed give Walsh’s idea a try. Both shows sold out and the rest, as they say, is history!”

The show has grown over the years but still presents Pink Floyd’s fan favorites backed by stunning 3-D visuals.

“This show has become a rite of passage for the younger Floyd fans. You aren’t rock certified unless you have experienced the Laser Spectacular,” said Monistere in a description of the show. “You can imagine images when you listen to Pink Floyd’s music, without any lighting effects at all! And there is still a show in your mind! Now imagine using lasers, lighting, video and other special effects to interpret what your mind is ‘seeing’. That is why people love this show so much.”

Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is located at 15 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
