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, resulted in the band carrying on from where they left off, with numerous shows in 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. The band clearly had a great time last year, as they are performing more shows in 2023!

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'.

There's a TEG Dainty and a Ticketek pre-sale, which start on Monday, 20th March at 10am local time - go to their respective websites for more details of how to participate in these pre-sales. This is followed by the general sale of tickets which starts on Wednesday, 22nd March, again at 10am local time, via this direct link at Ticketek.com.au.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

Show three of the 2023 Australian tour tour, and the band have arrived in Brisbane for a show that coincided with the birthday of one Dom Beken! They now have a day off, albeit travelling to the next show...

Dom's birthday was properly marked on stage, with a cake being brought out. Instead of candles (banned by the venue or local authorities?) there were sparklers on top of it, but these seemed to take a while to eventually fizzle out. There seemed to be more "banter" onstage during the show - in part was this due to it being Dom's special day? Or the potential jetlag, having travelled such a distance from the UK and facing a completely different time zone, having receded enough? Whatever the reason, it made for a fun show!

As expected, the crowd gave the band a very healthy ovation at the end! Did you go to this show? Let us know!

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!
