PINK FLOYD’S NICK MASON ANNOUNCES SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS AUSTRALIAN TOUR  

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets live @ Royal Albert Hall

In huge news for Australian Pink Floyd fans, Paul Dainty AO is thrilled to announce that NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS will hit our shores for a string of dates in September, 2023. The tour kicks off in Melbourne on Saturday 16th September 2023 before touring to Brisbane, Sydney and Perth.

Pink Floyd’s founding drummer and the band’s only constant member since their 1965 formation, Nick Mason originally assembled this supergroup – named after Pink Floyd’s second album, 1968’s ‘A Saucerful Of Secrets’ – in 2018, for the fans. His plan for NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS was to revive Pink Floyd’s pre-‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ material, much of which had not been played live on stage in decades.

NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS features Mason alongside Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, former Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris and keyboardist Dom Beken, all of whom bring fresh intensity and power to a selection of songs from the iconic band’s halcyon formative years.

Of founding this project, Nick Mason revealed during an interview: “With the help of some like-minded friends, I have embarked on a voyage of discovery of the music that was the launch pad of Pink Floyd and my working life. It seems too early to retire, and I missed the interaction with other musicians.”

Paul Dainty AO President, and CEO of TEG DAINTY says: “We’ve been reading the rapturous international reviews of NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS shows with envy, waiting patiently, and now it’s finally Australia’s turn. Mason is often referred to as the heartbeat of Pink Floyd and, by all accounts, this is a must-see concert experience. He assembled this supergroup with a view to including some extended improvised sections within their live shows while also recreating the atmosphere of Pink Floyd’s songs predating ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, so the quality of these musicians is without question. Particularly thrilling for fans is the prospect of experiencing the whimsy of some of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett-era material in a live setting. These shows will be as close as you can get to jumping in a time machine and catching Pink Floyd at their psychedelic, experimental best.”

NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS initially formed for an invitation-only performance at Dingwalls in Camden, London. By focusing on the legendary British group’s timeless early material, NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS gave fans an opportunity to experience Pink Floyd songs that had rarely been performed live.  Rave reviews and unanimous acclaim followed, which resulted in more shows being added – including a sold-out theatre tour of North America, Europe and the UK. Increased demand soon saw NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS returning for an encore season in 2019, which included two transformative sold-out shows at The Roundhouse: the historic Camden venue where Pink Floyd first played in 1966.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets Live At The Roundhouse’ – a live recording taken from the aforementioned sold-out shows – was released as a double-CD/DVD package, double-vinyl and on Blu-ray through Sony Records in 2020. Recorded almost a year to the day and just a few hundred yards from the first-ever NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS show, this release captures the joy, passion and synergy of this extraordinary supergroup.

During these upcoming Australian shows, fans can expect a curated setlist featuring songs from Pink Floyd’s early discography.  The sold-out houses and ecstatic worldwide critical acclaim that NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS have amassed around the globe speak volumes.

“…this was the most extraordinary and joyous show, a reminder of what a peculiar and brilliant band Pink Floyd were… If you have the slightest interest in Pink Floyd, do not miss this group… You won’t even need acid to blow your mind.”

✭✮✮✮✭ Michael Hann, Financial Times

“The sound was immense, electrifying, galvanising, mesmerising and still deeply strange, bending the formats of primal rock into all kind of weird and wonderful shapes…. it was a set of such startling intensity it seemed to mock the very notion of nostalgia. It was enough to make you wonder whether rock has progressed very far at all since the Sixties.”

✭✮✮✮ Neil McCormick, The Daily Telegraph
