Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has a couple of exciting releases early this year regarding his Saucerful of Secrets touring band which has been going around playing the early days of Pink Floyd music. They are still on tour and have lots of dates this year too.
First up, there will be a cinema screening of Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets Live at The Roundhouse. The one night only event takes place at cinemas around the world on Tuesday 10th March 2020, and you can find participating cinemas around the world on the Nick Mason on Film website. It is presented by Trafalgar Releasing who also did Roger Water’s Us and Them cinema screening.
Second, fans will be able to get their hands on the audio and video from the Roundhouse recording. It will be available in three formats including CD/DVD, Vinyl and Blu-ray. These will be released on 17th April 2020.
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.
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and his Saucerful of Secrets band are to play dates in North America in March and April next year. Tickets are on sale today for most of the shows, and on the 9th Nov for the others. Get Tickets.
“With the help of some like-minded friends, I have embarked on a voyage of discovery of the music that was the launch pad of Pink Floyd and my working life,” Mason said in a press release. “It seems too early to retire, and I missed the interaction with other musicians.”
The band features Nick Mason on Drums, Guy Pratt on Bass, Gary Kemp on vocals, Lee Harris on Guitars and Dom Beken on keyboards. They will play songs from the early days of Pink Floyd and have played 25 dates so far in the European Tour leg. This will be the first time Nick performs in a band in the Americas since Pink Floyd’s 1994 Division Bell tour.
