Nick Mason Forms Saucerful Of Secrets To Perform Early Pink Floyd Material
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has put together a band called “Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets” that will play four intimate shows in London next month. The group is expected to focus on material from Pink Floyd’s first two albums.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets will find the drummer joined by Guy Pratt, Gary Kemp, Lee Harris and Dom Beken. “This is a unique opportunity to experience Pink Floyd’s celebrated and significant early body of work played live including songs from albums The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets,” the new group said in a statement. “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 founder and the only constant member of the band performing on all of their albums as well as all of their live shows. This will be Nick Mason’s first live musical outing since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London.”
Up first for the group is a performance at Dingwall’s on May 20. Then, Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets plays Half Moon May 21 – 24. Tickets went on sale this morning and immediately sold out.
