COMMENTS

When Nick Mason made comments in Italy about heading out to small venues, to play early Pink Floyd songs, few took the remarks seriously. As unlikely as it seemed, Nick was entirely truthful and in the initial announcement a set of four shows in London were announced for his new band. Due to the critical success of those shows, held in small venues in Camden and Putney, a full European tour has been announced with this date one part of this.

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets brings together some familiar names, all great musicians: joining Nick are Gary Kemp and Lee Harris on guitars, Guy Pratt on bass, and Dom Beken on keyboards. Kemp is best known for his work with Spandau Ballet, Harris as having played guitar with The Blockheads (Ian Dury's band), Pratt needs no introduction, and Beken is principally known for his work with The Orb, and Transit Kings (with Pratt). The band will be playing early Pink Floyd songs.

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 regular sale of tickets started on FRIDAY, MAY 25th at 9am (UK time), via Eventim.de

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played!

A return to Hamburg for Nick, and a hugely appreciative audience.

For this latest show on the tour, during his initial thanks and welcome to the audience, Nick said: "Good evening everyone and welcome. I'm Nick Mason and we are NOT the Australian Roger Waters, or indeed the Danish David Gilmours, or anything else; we are Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets. I don't know if there's anyone here tonight who remembers when I was last here. I certainly DON'T but have it on good authority that I was here in 1971. Anyone else? [Lots of cheers] You can't ALL be over 70!! Anyway, we're very pleased to be here, and hope you enjoy yourselves as much as we are, up here."

The band's enjoyment and togetherness comes across clearly in the performance - it is a joy to hear the music performed like this, and it is definitely not a show to miss!

Tomorrow is a rest day, then the following night, they play the Beethovensaal in Stuttgart.

We'd love to know from those attending how they felt the concert went. How was the show for you, if you were one of the fortunate ones to attend? Let us know what YOU thought!

YOUR HELP NEEDED! We want to cover Nick's concerts the best we can, to share the experience with everyone, especially those who won't be able to attend the shows. We'd love to see ANY pictures, tickets scans, reviews, newspaper reports, and anything else you come across for this show - we look forward to hearing from you!
