Nick Mason To Perform Early Pink Floyd Tunes With New Band

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has put together a new band, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, to perform Floyd’s early hits. The lineup includes Spandau Ballet‘s Gary Kemp, Lee Harris of the Blockheads, bassist Guy Pratt, and composer 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 bestselling 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.”

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets will play Dingwall’s in London on May 20, followed by the Half Moon in Putney, on May 21, 23 and 24.
