Pink Floyd's Nick Mason Announces Saucerful Of Secrets 2023 Tour
In huge news for Australian Pink Floyd fans, Paul Dainty AO is thrilled to announce that NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS will hit our shores for a string of dates in September, 2023. The tour kicks off in Melbourne on Saturday 16th September 2023 before touring to Brisbane, Sydney and Perth. Pink Floyd’s founding drummer and the band’s only constant member since their 1965 formation, Nick Mason originally assembled this supergroup – named after Pink Floyd’s second album, 1968’s ‘A Saucerful Of Secrets’ – in 2018, for the fans. His plan for NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS was to revive Pink Floyd’s pre-‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ material, much of which had not been played live on stage in decades.
NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS features Mason alongside Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, former Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris and keyboardist Dom Beken, all of whom bring fresh intensity and power to a selection of songs from the iconic band’s halcyon formative years.

Of founding this project, Nick Mason revealed during an interview: “With the help of some like-minded friends, I have embarked on a voyage of discovery of the music that was the launch pad of Pink Floyd and my working life. It seems too early to retire, and I missed the interaction with other musicians." Paul Dainty AO President, and CEO of TEG DAINTY says: “We’ve been reading the rapturous international reviews of NICK MASON’S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS shows with envy, waiting patiently, and now it’s finally Australia’s turn. Mason is often referred to as the heartbeat of Pink Floyd and, by all accounts, this is a must-see concert experience. He assembled this supergroup with a view to including some extended improvised sections within their live shows while also recreating the atmosphere of Pink Floyd’s songs predating ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, so the quality of these musicians is without question. Particularly thrilling for fans is the prospect of experiencing the whimsy of some of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett-era material in a live setting. These shows will be as close as you can get to jumping in a time machine and catching Pink Floyd at their psychedelic, experimental best.”
