Portsmouth Guildhall

Capacity: 2,500 

Concert starts: 8pm

Address of venue: Guildhall Square, Portsmouth PO1 2AB. MAP



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 2021 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 MONDAY, 20th JULY at 12pm (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.

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

In previous shows there was a slight issue with a couple of the audience members persistently using their phone lights while filming, annoying the band - Nick has made a point in many of the gigs so far this year to ask that people DON'T use flash or video lights during the show. A general message has gone out on the band's social media channels asking for people to turn off these lights, which after all, make NO difference to any of the pictures or video taken from the audience! All it does is annoy other members of the audience around the person doing it, and the band members themselves who are trying to concentrate on the show. If you went to this show, how was the situation with this?

And so to the penultimate show of the Saucers' UK and Ireland Echoes tour, which leads nicely into the European leg. The venue - which the band played back in 2018 - has some Pink Floyd significance; it was the first place that the band manage to present the early version of The Dark Side Of The Moon to a live audience, in January 1972. The previous night, at the Brighton Dome, saw the band get as far as Money before they had to abandon the piece.

As expected, the band blew away the audience with the performance, and some pictures, reviews and comments are below. The band now head north to south London's Croydon, for the concluding show of this leg of the tour at the Fairfield Halls.

Portsmouth gig was the best gig I’ve been to in years!

I even caught a pick. I’ve NEVER caught a pick!! :-)

Can't wait for them to come to Madrid in July (where I am due to be then, lucky me!)
