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 that 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. The insatiable demand for more dates, in more locations, has resulted in the band carrying on from where they left off, with shows for 2020 taking the music to new fans, as well as those who have already experienced the show, eager for more!

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 starts on MONDAY JULY 20th at 12pm (UK time), via Ticketmaster, Seetickets, and the venues themselves.

UPDATE, 2nd February 2021: Due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, this concert, along with the others on the 2020/2021 tour, has been re-scheduled; tickets remain valid for the new date (shown in the title of this page) so there should be no need to contact the venue for clarification or to change the ticket.

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

Another great night for the band - and audience - in the surroundings of the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, a venue which closed off the 2018 tour. A slight tweak to the set list, swapping the penultimate song of the main set with the first of the encores; you can see which ones we're talking about, by checking the set list above!

A day's rest, then to Sheffield!


Please pass my thanks to all involved with the series of shows.

I was at RCH Nottingham and Leicester DMH. Both superb shows. Yes, same set list I think. But I felt Leicester was a better atmosphere and slightly superior sound.

Highlights apart from all were Atom Heart Mother, A Saucerful Of Secrets, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, Interstellar Overdrive, and of course Echoes.

I invested over both shows £200 on merch but hey I’ve saved up. More t-shirts to be vacuum wrapped for posterity and my daughter to sell when I leave this mortal coil, also a signed litho - had to.

Looking forward to a release of these gigs on vinyl, Blu-Ray and CD. Incidentally I met a guy at Leicester who I recalled from the Nottingham gig. Turns out he's from same village as my wife and sister in law and they know his parents!

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!
