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 2020 taking the music to new fans, as well as those who have already experienced the show, eager for more!

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 TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26th 2019 at 9am (UK time), via Ticketmaster, Seetickets, and the venues themselves.

UPDATE, 2nd February 2021: Due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, this concert, along with the others on the 2020/2021 tour, has been re-scheduled; tickets remain valid for the new date (shown in the title of this page) so there should be no need to contact the venue for clarification or to change the ticket.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

The Brighton Dome has a long history of reverberating to the sound of Pink Floyd. The band played there a number of times between 1967 - 1972, and the first of three times in that latter year saw the band attempt the first public performance of The Dark Side Of The Moon.

That performance was referenced by Gary Kemp during the show, with Nick Mason quick to say it wasn't just him presenting it. "Just Nick with a record player on stage" joked Gary.

The seaside nature of the location, and the fact that Guy Pratt has been a resident of the city for the last eleven years (one of the best decisions he'd ever made, he noted) meant that the show was always going to have a special flavour to it. That translated into a performance that was focused, powerful and thoroughly engaging for the audience.

Of course, with another famous Floyd face living in the city, rumours were rife that David Gilmour would be making a guest appearance in this show. Unsurprisingly, these rumours proved groundless, although people spotted in the audience included Mike Rutherford (Genesis and the Mechanics), Chris Difford (Squeeze) and Steve Norman (Spandau Ballet).

The band do seem to be getting better and better, as the remnants of rustiness from the enforced absence from the stage are shed with each show. Bodes incredibly well for upcoming shows, as the band already seem to be on fire! Do let us know what you thought of the concert, if you were also there...

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!
