When Nick Mason (during the press launch of the Rome staging of The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains) made comments in Italy about heading out to small venues, to play early Pink Floyd songs, few took the remarks seriously. As unlikely as it seemed, Nick was entirely truthful and in the initial announcement a set of four shows in London were announced for his new band. Due to the critical success of those shows in May 2018, held in small venues in Camden and Putney, a full European tour was announced for September. 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'.

The regular sale of tickets started on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9th at 10am (local time), via Ticketmaster. Please support Brain Damage by purchasing your tickets using this link - thanks, we really appreciate it!

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

Show six, and Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets have made the relatively short hop to Phoenix for the next gig on the 2019 tour. Initial comments are that the crowd was about the best so far! It is also apparent that the order of the set list has been settled, with no changes over the last few shows.

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!


Have to say, it was a fantastic show; Mason's legendary dry wit was in full form (though I suspect most of his "banter" follows the same pattern night to night, not that I mind!), and the band was excellent. The chance to see an original Floyd member (and the only consistent one!) in such an intimate setting was mind-blowing and not to be missed. I saw Floyd in 94 and every Waters tour since 2000 (including Coachella, and The Wall twice), but if I hadn't made it to this show, I would have really missed something special. And you can quote me on that!

Here's hoping it's not the last time...

P.S. To the best of my knowledge, and I'm sure you guys know far better than I, but the last time Mason performed in Phoenix (or rather our college-town suburb of Tempe) was on the TDB tour in April, 1994. I hope he liked our little mountainous desert oasis enough to come back sooner than another 25 years!

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!
