Our good friend and all round legend Guy Pratt is currently on tour in the states with his band A Saucer full of Secrets with Nick Mason and co. We have been seeing some of the pictures from the show and reading some of the reviews, seeing our own sentiments echoed by countless of old Floyd fans in the States is fantastic to see!
The band are returning to the UK and Europe in May this year to continue the tour with tickets now on sale and selling out fast. Click HERE to see the dates and buy tickets.
We have taken a few snippets from a recent review of the tour in the USA from The Houston Post you can read the full article HERE. Photo credit to Jill Furmanovsky.
' The show is filled with some incredible set piece performances, from the blistering opening of “Interstellar Overdrive” to an earth-crumbling “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun” to a version of “One of These Days” that will make you feel like you're in the last act of 2001: A Space Odyssey if you close your eyes while it unfolds.'
'There's a reason every review of this show goes on at length about how it feels like a miracle or a revelation because this is a show that many fans never thought could exist. Some of these songs Pink Floyd themselves never touched live. But here they are, alive and vibrant, ready for their time in the spotlight. It's all well deserved. Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets shows off what made Pink Floyd interesting and special, all without a single brick in the wall or trip around the moon. The heartbeat goes on, for now at least.'
