BEATS, melodies and foot tapping sounds are set to fill the air as three days of top music arrive in Felixstowe.

Tributes to Pink Floyd, Queen and the hit film Grease will each take its turn getting audiences at the town's Spa Pavilion moving and singing along.

Kicking things off on Thursday night > are Australian Pink Floyd, the original, and some might say the best, tribute to one of the world's biggest rock bands.

From Barrett to Breathe, Astronomy Domine to Another Brick in the Wall, the 2001 show is a stunning spectacle of light and sound.

And far from playing merely the classics, Australian Pink Floyd take a trip back to play the material the original Floyd have not played for years – Dogs, Echoes, Careful With That Axe, Eugene and many more.

The tribute band have even received the official seal of approval from the band they emulate, playing at Dave Gilmour's 50th birthday party in 1996 where they were joined on stage by Floyd founder member, Rick Wright and bass player, Guy Pratt.

Keeping the tributes coming on Friday will be Flash Harry – A Tribute To Queen.

Flash has sold out at venues across Ireland and the UK with its perfect emulation of the sounds of Freddie Mercury and co. And front man Harry Hamilton struts and poses in a similar fashion to the late Queen singer.

People who have seen the show say Flash is as close to the real thing as you are likely to get.

The official Queen Fan Club fanzine said: "This show is sheer entertainment, combining extravaganza with the theatrical and brings together the superb songs with the energy and excitement that a Queen concert produced.

"Don't be fooled into thinking that this is just another tribute band going through the motions…this show is different."

Completing the three-day musical line up is Grease Lightening with its mix of smash hits from Grease and Happy Days alongside other 50s and 60s classics.

Take a trip back in time as the joint starts jumping to the sounds of The Monkees, The Beach Boys, Chubby Checker and many more artists from the rock n roll generation.

N Tickets to Australian Pink Floyd at 8pm on Thursday cost £14.50. For Flash – A Tribute to Queen at 7.30pm on Friday they cost £12.50 and £10.50. And for Grease Lightening at 7.30pm on Saturday they are £13.50 and £12.50. All tickets are available at the theatre box office or by calling 01394 282126.
