Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets stageIn a move that should come as no surprise to anyone, due to the current Coronavirus restrictions and potential new waves of infection being experienced in some places, the upcoming Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets European tour is being postponed.

On their official social media channels, the band said:

Whilst really disappointing, the current Covid-19 situation sadly means we're having to delay the European #SaucerfulOfSecrets shows again. Please bear with us as we work on getting new dates for all the shows; hopefully we will have the revised dates for your diary very shortly!

The tour was due to start on May 19th - less than two months away - and despite the start of the vaccine rollout - it would have clearly been too early for a tour to start. Restrictions in place at the time might have meant that only partial capacities would be permitted, and with the majority of tickets sold, how would a venue or promoter decide who would be the lucky ones still able to attend, and who would miss out?

Obviously the bad (if expected) news was tempered with the great news that revised dates are being worked on. It must be incredibly difficult to come up with a multi-country tour schedule which works logistically, particularly with the number of artists who will be undergoing the same exercise. Once we have the revised dates, we will let you all know.
