Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has updated his tour itinerary.
After delaying his 2020 European appearances due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mason and his Saucerful of Secrets have now provided fans a new set of 2021 dates.
“We can now reveal European tour dates,” Saucerful of Secrets write via their official Twitter account, “now taking place in late spring/early summer 2021. Tickets remain valid for the new dates; for details of these, and to buy tickets where available.”
The new tour will kick off in Hamburg, Germany in May 2021 and conclude at France’s Sete Theatre on June 28.
A US tour stated to be in the works prior to the outbreak but not formally announced will likely follow.
Mason’s UK tour dates, recently rescheduled from April to October this year, remain unchanged.
In the meantime, a live album capturing Mason and his band’s 2019 performance at former ’60s underground venue The Roundhouse titled Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets Live At The Roundhouse will arrive on September 18.
Formed in 2018, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Streets performs material from Pink Floyd’s “early years”.
“In a way, it was a very sort of old-school version of how you put a band together,” Nick Mason shared of the band’s formation with Ultimate Classic Rock in 2018, “which is people that you like, deciding that it would be fun to work together. We had no idea, really. I certainly had no idea of whether it would work or not. I think we booked two days in the rehearsal room. It was a really sort of pretty glossy room. To keep it really simple, I didn’t even bring my own drum kit in. We just used one that they had in the room. By the end of the day, we all looked at each other and went, ‘That was great! Let’s do more!’”
With Pink Floyd’s former creative architect Roger Waters having joined Mason on stage in New York for a rendition of ‘Set Controls For The Heart of the Sun’ last year, Mason is optimistic David Gilmour may also make a guest appearance.
“Roger got up on-stage with us in New York last year,” Mason shared in another recent interview, “and I hope David will do something as well in the future.”
