It’s a unique use of an old standby at museums, namely the Planetarium. Carnegie Science Center are now offering four different laser shows. Two new shows (Aerosmith vs. Guns n’ Roses and Lasermau5) will join the returning “The Vision Bell: The Best of Laser Floyd”, “Michael Jackson” and “The Lasers of Oz”, Daft Punk and Led Zeppelin.
Aerosmith vs. Guns n’ Roses
Why choose when you can have both? Hear as Joe Perry battles Slash and Steven Tyler takes on Axl Rose as the greatest hard rock bands of our time battle it out. Featuring such mega hits as “Paradise City,” “Walk This Way,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” and more!
Lasermau5 is the new show premiering EDM’s biggest act. Rock out to the booming sound system and state of the art laser and lighting as you experience such songs as "I Remember," Ghosts N' Stuff," and "Raise Your Weapon.”
The Vision Bell: The Best of Laser Floyd
For those of us who actually remember when Pink Floyd arrived on our shores but don’t really want to stay up past midnight to hear them again, there is a Saturday 7:00 p.m. show. Experience Pink Floyd in all their glory with such hits as “Wish You Were Here”, “A Momentary Lapse of Reason”, “The Wall”, and “Dark Side of the Moon”.
Back by popular demand are Michael Jackson, at 5:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and The Lasers of Oz in daily matinees at 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Daft Punk and Led Zeppelin continue on Friday evenings, and of course Midnight Pink Floyd remains at midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, as it has for decades. This laser lineup will run through May 4.
Admission to laser shows is just $2 for members or $8 for non-members. For complete show times and descriptions of all shows, visit CarnegieScienceCenter.org.
The Buhl Planetarium
The Buhl Planetarium offers a unique live experience with state-of-the-art solid state lasers and a brand new vibrant LED lighting system. All laser shows throb with energy, mesmerizing lights, and 3D atmospheric effects that fill the air above the audience. Each laser appears many, many times brighter than the old argon gas system that was formerly used in laser shows.
