COMMENTS

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 2022 taking the music to new fans, as well as those who have already experienced the show, eager for more - particularly with the halt to concerts due to the Coronavirus pandemic!

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 FRIDAY, June 11th 2021 at 12pm (local time), via Ticketmaster, and the venues themselves.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

Night two - the Saucers having moved from Dublin to Belfast, from southern to Northern Ireland - saw the audience lap up the show. Despite a couple of little technical glitches (see James McGreevy's comments below), the crowd clearly loved hearing the band go through their paces, and really appreciated the new set list that the band have come up with for this new, 2022 tour.

Next stop is York, in England.

CONCERT COMMENTS and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, James McGreevy
I went to the Ulster Hall gig in Belfast Thursday night. A couple of glitches to report. About 5 minutes into AHM, Dom activated, or it happened by itself, the vocal for One Of These Days appeared...cue confusion on stage, Dom carries on being the consummate professional. Then next song they forgot to plug in, or activate Gary's acoustic.
