The news that Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are touring again will be music to fans of Pink Floyd. Their UK tour of 2018 was a great occasion where each night the band played incendiary classics and old gems from Pink Floyd’s earlier career up to and including Obscured By Clouds.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets played their first gigs at four intimate and acclaimed live shows at London’s Dingwalls (20th May 2018) and The Half Moon in Putney (21st, 23rd and 24th May 2018), these were Nick Mason’s first live musical outings since Pink Floyd’s Division Bell Tour in 1994, and the show at Dingwalls was his first since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London.
The band went on to sell-out theatres around the world including three nights at London’s Roundhouse, where Pink Floyd played some of their most revered early shows in the 1960’s. The 2020 tour will see the band further expand their repertoire and will play songs from Pink Floyd’s early catalogue up to the 1972 album Obscured by Clouds.
On 12th September 2019, Nick Mason was named Prog Magazine’s Prog God at the prestigious Progressive Music Awards at the Shakespeares Globe Theatre, previous recipients include Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Ian Anderson, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe.
