Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets announce Montreux Jazz Festival 2024 concertSome of the more notable concert venues are the more unusual ones, and sometimes this is due to an unusual event. A perfect example of that is the Casino in Montreux, Switzerland. For those unaware, the Deep Purple song Smoke On The Water is about a fire that struck the venue while Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention were there performing, in December 1971.

The Montreux Jazz Festival was founded in 1967 and the Casino has always been a key venue for the event. In the 1970s, it broadened its scope from jazz to bring on various other musical genres (with Pink Floyd playing in 1970 at the Festival), and this year will see Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets join the list of musicians who have been fortunate enough to play the Festival!

The band will be playing Montreux on July 13th, and tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday, April 19th) at 12pm (11am BST) through Tickets.MontreuxJazz.com.

It is the final date to be added to the European tour this year, and nicely fills the gap between the Portoroz and Graz gigs.
