There have been a plethora of Floyd tribute bands founded over the past three decades such as The Machine who I saw in town as well. The two Commonwealth ones can have more people on stage like backing vocalists and additional musicians to do the songs justice. CE at least staged The Wall but having fake bricks like solo Roger Waters would was either a fire hazard inside a smaller place or not practical on a budget as licence royalties may be considered among other possible costs.
Steve Schad who played keyboards in CE has gone on to another tribute act called Beatlecuse who I saw twice last year but is the name of a show with a collective of local people and guest doing Beatles et al. Other members such as Tom Robinson (guitar), Eric Garboushian (drums), Jimmy Simpson Puma (bass) , Gregory John (guitar), and others have moved on to other things for all I know. Did see former manager Greg Jackson and his wife Sandra (who took photographs of the band during the show) at the chippy last year. At least one could see Waters if they can make the trip.
I just wanted something to give the band and fans closure as there's nothing saved on record about the End of Childhoods End which is named for a track on Obscured by Clouds which true fans know.
