Nick Mason says… “Six years ago when I got behind the drums again and we started playing the early Pink Floyd material, it was a real pleasure on so many levels. Many of the tracks had never actually been played live, so to have performed them all over the world has been something we’ve all enjoyed immensely. To get the opportunity to come back to the UK for another tour is something the band and I had been hoping we would be able to do, so to say “we’re back” feels good!” 

Formed in 2018, Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are Nick Mason, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken and they play Pink Floyd’s celebrated and significant early body of work including tracks from the era of 1967’s ‘The Piper At The Gates of Dawn’ through to 1972’s ‘Obscured By Clouds’ which has included a much lauded rendition of the 23 minute epic ‘Echoes’.

Very few bands are as culturally important as Pink Floyd. They are one of the best selling music artists of all time and Nick Mason is a co-founder and the only constant member of the band performing on all of their albums as well as all of their live shows.

✭✮✮✮✮ Michael Hann, Financial Times “ – …this was the most extraordinary and joyous show”

✭✮✮✮ Dominic Maxwell, The Times – “What a joy it is, then, to see Mason back on stage leading a new band devoted to Floyd’s pre-Dark Side of the Moon days.”

✭✮✮✮ Neil McCormick, The Daily Telegraph – “The sound was immense, electrifying, galvanising, mesmerising and still deeply strange, bending the formats of primal rock into all kind of weird and wonderful shapes.”

Ian Fortnam, Classic Rock Magazine – “The sheer joy and vigour of the bands performance is as infectious as it is tangible”

Jerry Ewing, Prog Magazine – “It’s apparent we are witnessing something incredibly special”
