Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets

This came out of nowhere ( I think) as I don't recall ever hearing any talk of this. Sounds like Nick will be playing a few shows featuring the first 2 records. Guy Pratt is involved along with a few others. Cool idea as far as I'm concerned................

Yeah. It seems to have come from nowhere, but Nick has been itching to get on-stage for twenty years now to play Pink Floyd gigs. This, coupled with his recent curating of the Early Years box has probably rekindled his love of the early albums. If his band plays anywhere near me I'll definitely go.

They could easily do a 2 hour show with SOS & Interstellar Overdrive in the set. Why not bring out the old slides while they're at it? Nick may actually get a vocal as well with Corp Clegg.

Haha! I doubt it though. I think we're more likely to see something that looks like a typical set list around 1970. It would be soooo cool to see.

I've got tickets to see him in Manchester in September! It's a bit odd that they're doing "Point Me at the Sky" and not "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".

I'm hoping that if Dave tours again Guy can say to him "look Dave, when we played these songs in with Nick the audiences loved them!" and maybe Dave will crack out something like "See Emily Play" or "Bike" for shits and giggles.

Too bad there was no "Remember a Day" or "Jugband Blues". Perfect chance to pay tribute to Rick and Syd.

Well they play plenty of Syd songs, why would "Jugband Blues" be any more of a tribute than "Bike", "Arnold Layne" or "See Emily Play"?
