Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason announces North American tour

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will perform vintage material by the legendary UK band on a spring 2019 tour of North America.

Billed as Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets – after the group’s second album – the drummer is joined by Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, Lee Harris of the Blockheads, bassist Guy Pratt and composer Dom Beken, a collaborator with late Floyd keyboardist Rick Wright.

The lineup strictly performs material from Pink Floyd’s pre-“The Dark Side Of The Moon” era, including songs from their groundbreaking 1967 debut, “The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.”

“With the help of some like-minded friends, I have embarked on a voyage of discovery of the music that was the launchpad of Pink Floyd and my working life,” says Mason. “It seems too early to retire, and I missed the interaction with other musicians.”

The five-week spring series (see dates below) will hit most US major cities after it opens in Vancouver, BC on March 12.

Tickets for most shows will go on sale Monday, November 5, with others available starting Friday, November 11 – for details by market, visit

A week after the North American dates finish in Washington, DC on April 22, Mason and company will play a brief UK tour that includes two nights at London’s Roundhouse.
