Pink Floyd legend Nick Mason has formed an intriguing new band called Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets.
The five-piece will solely perform Pink Floyd’s early work including songs from 'The Piper At The Gates of Dawn' and 'A Saucerful Of Secrets’ at four ultra-intimate shows in London next month.
They kick off with a date at the 500-capacity Camden Dingwalls on Sunday 20th May and follow it with a trio of 250-capacity shows at The Half Moon in Putney on the Monday (21st), Wednesday (23rd) and Thursday (24th).
Tickets are on sale now from www.thesaucerfulofsecrets.com. All ticket holders will require photo ID with their ticket for entry to the shows.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets is the brainchild of former Blockheads guitarist Lee Harris who back in 2016 suggested putting a group together around Nick Mason and featuring esteemed Pink Floyd/ David Gilmour session bassist Guy Pratt.
To distance themselves from Roger Waters and David Gilmour's live set lists, the idea was to focus solely on Pink Floyd’s embryonic years of 1967 to 1972.
With Nick Mason on board, they completed Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets with Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp on guitars and music producer/composer Dom Beken on keyboards.
The four gigs in May will be Nick Mason’s first live musical outing since Pink Floyd’s historic Live 8 concert in London’s Hyde Park in 2005. Nick, of course, is a founder and the only constant member of Pink Floyd performing on all of their albums as well as all of their live shows.
