An exhibition dedicated to British rockers Pink Floyd has been postponed due to production delays.

A multi-sensory retrospective, titled The Mortal Remains, was due to launch in Milan, Italy in September (14) with the help of former bandmembers David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters.

Organisers have scrapped the start date and suspended ticket sales after discovering the exhibition will not be ready in time.

They say in a statement, "Evolve Devolve, the Italian promoters of The Pink Floyd Exhibition, have announced today that the exhibition, due to start on 19 September 2014 in Milan, has had to be postponed due to production delays. Building the complex exhibition to the required specification has made it impossible to make the opening date."

Fans from all over Europe were expected to flock to the La Fabbrica Del Vapore venue to see more than 300 artefacts from the band's career, including a giant inflatable pig which famously broke loose during a photoshoot in the 1970s and drifted into the flight path of a London airport.

A new opening date is yet to be announced.
