AceShowbiz - Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has formed a new group so he can hit the road and perform his old band's early music. Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, named after Pink Floyd's second album, will perform four London shows in May.
Besides Mason, the supergroup also features Spandau Ballet's guitarist Gary Kemp and bassist Guy Pratt, who took over from Roger Waters in Pink Floyd.
"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'," a band statement reads. "Very few bands are as culturally important as Pink Floyd,"
The statement continues, "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. This will be Nick Mason's first live musical outing since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London."
Mason's Saucerful of Secrets will debut at Dingwall's in London on May 20, before playing three shows at the Half Moon in Putney.
