Nick Mason Forms Supergroup With Gary Kemp To Perform Music of Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason is not letting the early music of his band get overshadowed by their later blockbusters.

Mason has formed a new band, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, to tour the early classics with Gary Kemp of Spandau Ballet, Lee Harris of the Blockheads, Guy Pratt who, took over for Roger Waters in Floyd and producer and composer Dom Beken.

This is a bit of a jump out of retirement for Mason who has not performed more than one song live since 2005. He did appear at the London Olympics closing ceremony with Ed Sheeran, Mike Rutherford and Richard Jones, doing “Wish You Were Here”.

According to a press release “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. Very few bands are as culturally important as Pink Floyd. They are one of the best selling music artists of all time and Nick Mason is a founder and the only constant member of the band performing on all of their albums as well as all of their live shows.”

The band has four dates confirmed so far, May 20 at Dingwalls in London and May 21, 23 and 24 at the Half Moon in Putney.
