COMMENTS

Due to the critical success of the four initial shows in May 2018, held in tiny venues in London's Camden and Putney, Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets announced a full European tour for September last year. The expanded shows for the full tour were even more highly acclaimed, and it came as no surprise when further dates for 2019 were announced!

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'.

Tickets for this concert went on sale Monday, February 11th at 10am CET, through this link at Ticketmaster.nl.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

With the heat currently affecting much of Europe, another indoor show is probably no bad thing, making things much more comfortable for band, crew, venue staff and audience. After tonight, a well-deserved day off, then off to Prague, in the Czech Republic, for the penultimate show of this current tour...

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!

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Brion Hoke

I saw Roger twice in Copenhagen and on the second night I was lucky enough to sit in the front row and just enjoy the musicianship as it was my 10th US and THEM Concert. I just love that show!

Anyway, I will submit that review later. I wanted to focus on Nick Mason's Saucers. I saw them at the Fillmore in Detroit much earlier and I felt that the band made great strides together and was simply magical at the Raj in Amsterdam.

To hear songs like Bike and Atom Heart Mother is such an amazing treat. I really never thought I'd ever hear those songs live. It has to be said that this band is truly special for bringing these songs to the stage. It was both ballsy and bold to bring such elements out of the depths of London psychedelic era.

I was there with two friends who live in Amsterdam, I in Michigan, so it was great to reconnect with old friends and old music. I find Green is the Colour to be so calming and on the other hand I hear some hard rock and punk vibes in The Nile Song. I had heard Roger sing If before and I loved the Saucers version as well.

Some of the music felt very invasive while other moments were warm and inviting. The array of music brought forth by the Saucers is really varied and creates a very nice show. The colourful light show only added to the experience and to see a nice tribute to Syd was great.

This will be my second year teaching THE HISTORY OF ROCK AND ROLL in High School and this experience helped me understand the music of that era.

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!
