Pink Floyd are one of the most influential and successful British bands, having sold over 200 million records.

To mark 50 years since they released their first single in 1967, the V&A is putting on a blockbuster exhibition about Pink Floyd. It promises to include their iconic imagery, immersive sound experiences and the spirit of the underground psychedelic scene of  the 1960s.

Even those unfamiliar with Pink Floyd's music will recognise their eye-catching visuals including marching hammers and a pig flying over Battersea Power Station.

The V&A is pulling out all the stops by having the remaining band members helping to pull the show together.

They've also got Michael Cohl promoting the exhibition. Cohl has promoted the tours of many of the world's biggest music artists including Michael Jackson, U2, Prince and of course Pink Floyd themselves.

This is going to be the V&A's headline exhibition and it's undoubtedly going to be very popular. We're looking forward to it, and tickets are already on sale.

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains will be on at the V&A from 13 May-17 October 2017. Tickets are available and cost £20-24.
