Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets: UK tour, with extra dates, moves to April/May 2021 Print E-mail

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets

Today we bring you the news that we're pretty sure 99% of you have been expecting. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the UK dates lined up for October 2020 for Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets have been postponed until April/May next year when things will hopefully be a little more settled and a sense of some normality will have returned. At the moment, we'd be amazed if any indoor concerts happen this year.

The press release for the move rightly notes the "uncertainty surrounding us all" due to the pandemic, and makes it clear that it "is important to the band that those who are planning to attend the shows are able to do so safely and without concern for their health and wellbeing. To achieve this, and to allow people the opportunity to plan their travel to and from the concerts, postponing until April 2021 was the best option."

With the move of the shows, they've managed to add three new dates to the schedule, and have had to cancel two of the existing shows as they were unable to reschedule them. So, the shows in Gateshead and Southampton have now gone, but have been replaced with shows in Newcastle and Portsmouth, which were as close as they could manage to the original locations. Holders of tickets for the cancelled shows can receive a refund from their ticket provider. 

Tickets for the five additional shows have just gone on sale (at midday, today, UK time) from SeeTicketsTicketmaster and other normal agents including the venues, so if you are intending to go to one of these additional shows, we suggest you buy now to get the best choice of seats. All the other shows remain on sale, but for the revised dates. The new UK tour schedule is follows:

  • Tuesday 13th April - Leicester De Montfort Hall  - TICKETS
  • Wednesday 14th April - Guildford G Live  - TICKETS
  • Friday 16th April - Croydon Fairfield Halls  - TICKETS (new show)
  • Sunday 18th April - Nottingham Royal Concert Hall  - TICKETS (new show)
  • Monday 19th April - Portsmouth Guildhall  - TICKETS (new show)
  • Tuesday 20th April - Sheffield City Hall  - TICKETS
  • Thursday 22nd April - London Royal Albert Hall  - TICKETS
  • Saturday 24th April - Plymouth Pavilions TICKETS (new show)
  • Monday 26th April - Brighton Dome  - TICKETS
  • Tuesday 27th April - Bath Forum  - TICKETS
  • Thursday 29th April - Oxford New Theatre  - TICKETS

    Roger Waters et al appearing in free stream of Newport Folk Festival film Print E-mail

    Roger Waters et al - Our Voices Together film

    A date for the diaries of all you Roger Waters fans out there... having previously attended the Newport Folk Festival, there was a fair chance that Roger would have appeared at this year's event, as it was scheduled to fall just before his brace of concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden in August.

    Roger's concerts were of course postponed until next year (and we are still awaiting the revised dates), and, as expected, this year's Newport Folk Festival also has followed suit, and won't be taking place in Rhode Island this year, all due to the ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. However, the organisers of the Festival have arranged for a weekend of livestreams they've called "Folk On Revival Weekend".

    Taking place on the same weekend that the festival was originally scheduled - July 31st through to August 2nd - "Folk On Revival Weekend" will feature three distinct webcasts, two of which are ticketed. All proceeds will go to the non-profit organisation Newport Festivals Foundation.

    The webcast Roger fans will most want to see though is the third of the three webcasts, and the one which is free of charge to stream.

    On August 2nd at 8:30pm EST, Our Voices Together will give artists "a place to speak truth to power. The film will present new performances from Roger Waters with Lucius, Jason Isbell, Tom Morello, Carlile, Jim James, Langhorne Slim, and others.

    Our Voices Together will be available via this direct link at YouTube.

    Roger Waters Us + Them 2CD, 3LP, DVD and Blu-ray announced Print E-mail

    Roger Waters Us + Them physical releases (Blu-ray, 3LP, 2CD, DVD)

    The news that many of you have been waiting for - the physical editions of the Roger Waters Us + Them concert film have now been announced, and will be released on October 2nd, 2020.

    Whilst the digital edition is now available to purchase or rent from your preferred outlet in 4K, HD and SD digital formats, we've had a lot of emails and messages asking us when people can get their hands on the Blu-ray, DVD, CD or 3LP vinyl of this spectacular recording. Whether you go for the digital download, the Blu-ray, or DVD, you'll have access to two additional concert songs not included in the original film shown in cinemas - Comfortably Numb and Smell The Roses - along with the short but fascinating documentary style feature A Fleeting Glimpse, which looks behind the scenes.

    Let's take a closer look at the contents. The 2CD set features the show (minus C Numb and Roses) split across the two discs, with the split coming where the intermission of the show was. So, you have on disc one: Intro / Speak To Me / Breathe / One Of These Days / Time / Breathe (Reprise) / The Great Gig In The Sky / Welcome To The Machine / Deja Vu / The Last Refugee / Picture That / Wish You Were Here / The Happiest Days Of Our Lives / Another Brick In The Wall Pt 2 and 3. Turning to the second disc, this contains: Dogs / Pigs (3 Different Ones) / Money / Us And Them / Brain Damage / Eclipse / The Last Refugee (Reprise) / Deja Vu (Reprise).

    The 3LP vinyl edition follows the above track list, but is split as follows: LP1 Side A: Intro - The Great Gig In The Sky; LP1 Side B: Welcome To The Machine - The Last Refugee; LP2 Side C: Picture That - Another Brick In The Wall Pt 3; LP2 Side D: Dogs; LP3 Side E: Pigs (3 Different Ones) - Money; LP3 Side F: Us And Them - Deja Vu (Reprise).

    The Blu-ray and DVD editions have the same contents but obviously the Blu-ray will be presenting the material in higher quality. These present the whole show (as per the 2CD track listing, but obviously not split), along with the live performances of Comfortably Numb and Smell The Roses, and the documentary A Fleeting Glimpse.

    Needless to say, this is bound to be a popular release when it appears on October 2nd. You should be able to place your orders for this through the following direct links (the use of which benefits Brain Damage at no extra cost to you, and is hugely appreciated by us as help towards the ongoing running costs of the site):
