February 19, 2020 – The legendary Nick Mason, founder, drummer and long-time member of Pink Floyd, is bringing supergroup Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets to INmusic Zagreb!
Namely, Dnevnik.hr reports that Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets will take festivalgoers on a special musical journey on INmusic’s 15th birthday.
Creating the unique and inimitable sound of Pink Floyd, commonly described as art rock or progressive rock, Nick Mason and his bandmates Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Syd Barrett became music immortals and some of the most notable musicians of the 20th century. Pink Floyd’s influence is enormous, and is said to have inspired David Bowie, U2, Queen, Radiohead, Kraftwerk, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, and more.
After curating the acclaimed box set The Early Years 1965-1972, dedicated to the early psychedelic work of the cult band, in 2016, Nick Mason decided to make a full-blooded return to the scene after a historic appearance as part of a humanitarian Live 8 concert that last brought together all living members Pink Floyd.
Unlike bandmates David Gilmour and Roger Waters, whose extensive tour focuses on Pink Floyd’s later works, their solo works and select early Pink Floyd classics, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets returns to Pink Floyd’s most innovative sound and brings a concert interpretation of the albums from The Piper at the Gates of Dawn to Obscured by Clouds performing. And they exclusively perform only Pink Floyd songs. Being a cross-section of seven Pink Floyd albums out of a total of 15 studio releases, Nick Mason offers the audience the most extensive concert experience of one of the most significant and greatest rock bands of all time.
In the words of Nick Mason himself, Saucerful of Secrets is his return to his favorite Floyd songs. Seeking to “capture the spirit of the times,” Nick Mason brings together top musicians in a supergroup, such as Gary Kemp (Spandau Ballet), Guy Pratt (Pink Floyd bassist after Waters), Lee Harris (Ian Dury & the Blockheads) and Dom Beken (The Orb, Transit Kings) who authentically and vitally reinterpret Pink Pink’s most challenging, productive and inventive years. The audience awaits top performances of classics that have permanently marked the modern history of music – “A Saucerful of Secrets”, “One of These Days”, “Astronomy Domine”, “Let There Be More Light”, “Green Is the Color”, “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, “Lucifer Sam”, “Arnold Layne”, “Bike”, “Fearless”, and more.
The exclusive four appearances in London in May 2018 were followed by a sold-out European and North American tour that brought the sound of early Pink Floyd to some of the most prestigious stages in the world – from a celebratory concert at the London Roundhouse, Paris Olympia, Philadelphia The Metropolitan Opera House, to the ancient amphitheaters of Lyon and Sicilian Taormina, and the just-announced performances at the Berlin Tempodrome and London’s Royal Albert Hall scheduled for May 2020.
All lovers of Pink Floyd, rejoice! You won’t want to miss this year’s INmusic in Zagreb.
