Roger Waters being awarded O2 Silver Clef Award Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 05 July 2018

O2 Silver Clef AwardsArtists including Roger Waters, Robert Plant, Ellie Goulding, George Ezra, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe, and Stereophonics are among the winners of the 43rd O2 Silver Clef Awards.

Presenter Edith Bowman will host the event, which raises money for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, tomorrow (Friday, July 6th) at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, while coverage from the red carpet will be presented by Peter Andre.

Roger Waters and Robert Plant are being honoured for their contribution to music and will be presented with the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Award and the Integro Outstanding Award respectively. Stereophonics pick up the American Express Icon Award, while Ellie Goulding is awarded the Liz Hobbs Best Female Award and George Ezra will take home the AEG Presents Best Male Award.

The hotel where the ceremony is taking place is situated on Park Lane, handily next to Hyde Park, where Roger will be performing in the evening. Many congratulations on the award, Roger!

UPDATE: Roger collected his award from Brian Eno, prior to headlining the British Summer Time show across the road in Hyde Park. "Checking the history books, Pink Floyd did the very first free concert in the park in 1969 so that's a great memory," said Roger. "Well done Nordoff Robbins for the great work that you do with the children who need the help of music as a healing force in their lives."

Thursday, 05 July 2018

Tickets for the 21-date Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets European tour in September this year are selling very well in most cities, with some venues understandably completely sold out now.

Having seen the four inaugural shows in London in May, we urge you to go to see the band in their upcoming dates if at all possible - it's a concert you really won't want to miss!

To help spread the word about The Saucers, back on June 26th, the UK's BBC 6 Music Breakfast's Matt Everitt sat down with Nick to talk about how it feels revisiting the past and some of the most influential and psychedelic music ever created. Here's the interview (with thanks to Dave Carlin for the link to it):

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains heading to Dortmund, Germany Print E-mail

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains - Dortmund, GermanyWell, the wait is over - the next location for The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains is a city that the Floyd played in a number of times, from the 1977 In The Flesh tour onwards. Dortmund is the city, and the Dortmunder U is the location.

The venue is a former brewery building, which for the last eight years has been a centre for the arts and creativity. Situated close to the city's centrally located railway station, it's in an ideal position. You can find out more about the museum, and the exhibition, via dortmunder-u.de.

With the Rome, Italy, staging of the exhibition, there were some adjustments to the items displayed, not least an inclusion of items specific to that country. We suspect the same changes will be made for Dortmund, with materials relating to German shows being included amongst the exhibits.

Whilst an official announcement is yet to be made, tickets have now gone on sale, and the venue website also has a section on the exhibition.

This latest staging of the exhibition opens on September 15th, and runs until February 10th 2019. Tickets are now available as a special presale through Eventim; you can buy them through this direct link.
