Pink Floyd co-founder and drummer Nick Mason has moved his 2020 U.K. tour with his band Saucerful of Secrets to 2021. The July 20 announcement cited uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. The concerts had previously been moved from spring 2020 to autumn. (On May 11, Mason postponed their 2020 European tour to 2021.)

The U.K. tour includes five additional concerts. However, dates in Gateshead and Southampton were unable to be rescheduled. Tickets already purchased for the other dates remain valid. See all the revised dates below. (It’s still anticipated that another North American tour will be announced.)

Mason is releasing a live album of all-new performances of early Pink Floyd classics on Sept. 18. The 22-track collection, titled Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets Live at the Roundhouse, will be available as a 2-CD/DVD package, on 2-LPs, and on Blu-ray.

The concerts on the recordings took place in May 2019.

As Mason noted when he first formed the combo, “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.”

He is the only constant member of Pink Floyd, performing on all of their albums as well as all of their live shows.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets are Mason, Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, longtime Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris and keyboardist Dom Beken.

The group played their first gigs at four intimate live shows at London’s Dingwalls and The Half Moon in Putney in May 2018. These were Mason’s first live musical outings since Pink Floyd’s Division Bell tour in 1994, and the show at Dingwalls was his first since Pink Floyd played at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London.

The band went on to sell-out theaters around the world including three nights at London’s Roundhouse, where Pink Floyd played some of their most revered early shows in the 1960’s.

In April 2019, Mason’s longtime bandmate, Roger Waters, joined him on stage.
