RMSC Strasenburgh Planetarium Features Hits from Pink Floyd and U2 Saturday Nights in June
ROCHESTER, NY—The Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) Strasenburgh Planetarium features music from Pink Floyd and U2 accompanied by laser lights Saturday night in June. Visitors experience Pink Floyd Laser at 8pm, followed by U2 Laser at 9:30pm. Each show lasts approximately 50 minutes.
Pink Floyd Laser features a host of classics, including "Money," "Learning to Fly," "Another Brick in the Wall," and others. Audience members feel the power of surround sound on selected tracks.
Then, the six-channel digital sound system switches to classic U2 songs, including "Where the Streets Have No Name," "One," "Beautiful Day" and "Mysterious Ways."
Luminous argon and krypton laser light effects splash across the Planetarium indoor-sky, heightening the experience with sight and sound. Audiences lose themselves in an exciting virtual environment, following colorful light movements that pulse in patterns that brilliantly match the music.
