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 Ticketmaster.dk

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

From one Swedish city to another! The band flew down from Stockholm to Copenhagen on the day of the show at the Forum Black Box - a modern venue to counterpoint the historic Cirkus which was host to the opening concert of the tour, last night.

During his initial thanks and welcome to the audience in Copenhagen, Nick said "As you may know, we are not the Australian Roger Waters, and we are also not the Indonesian David Gilmour. We are Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets! I think the only thing for me to say, is that I'm having more fun now than at almost any other time in my musical career..."

Certainly that sense of fun and enjoyment comes across so clearly in the performances. Definitely a show to catch if you can!

The set list went unchanged, and we expect this to remain constant throughout the run of concerts. Initial reports are glowing about the performance; the band now travel a few hundred miles to Rostock in Germany for night three.

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!
