Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason set up his Saucerful of Secrets band back in 2018 with guitarist Lee Harris. He soon assembled a full band including Pink Floyd session bassist Guy Pratt, Gary Kemp from Spandau Ballet as the singer/guitarist and keyboardist Dom Beken.
They played a gig at London’s Roundhouse theatre down in Camden and had camera’s galore to film it. It is now finally released on multiple formats for fans to revisit earlier Pink Floyd material which doesn’t often get a look in from Gilmour and Waters. Some great songs there in the set list.
You can get it as video in Bluray or just the audio from CD, VInyl or online platforms like Spotify and Amazon Music.

The Nic Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets Band was formed in 2018 to perform the early music of Pink Floyd. Prior to this, Nick had been working on curating the Pink Floyd Early Years boxset so must have whet his appetite for the good old days! The band consisted of Nick Mason on Drums, Guy Pratt on Bass, Gary Kemp on Guitars and Vocals, Lee Harris on Guitar and Dom Beken on Keyboards.
The concert that was recorded occurred at the Roundhouse Theatre
in London and was subjected to 18 cameras many of which were remotely operated
and one of which flew around like a wild bird over the 500 or so friends,
family and fans who assembled below to witness the greatness of early Pink
Floyd played by some top fellas.
