Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets have announced a North American tour for next year.
Mason is joined in the lineup by Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken, with the outfit playing a selection of early Pink Floyd material, including tracks from The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets.
Last month the band revealed a run of UK shows for April and May – and they’ve now announced a total of 25 shows across the US and Canada which will take place before the UK dates.

Speaking with Billboard last month, Mason admitted that revisiting Floyd’s early material wasn’t easy and called the process “challenging”.
He said: “Being an eternal optimist, I thought it would just come straight back to me. Sadly, I was wrong. Once you start examining Syd Barrett’s work carefully, it’s quite often more complex than you expect.
“It's not necessarily written like so many pop songs with an eight-bar section and the middle eights and whatever. It's quite often a completely different set of bar counts to what you're expecting.
“And that in a way was fun and challenging to get at the feel of the song, but not necessarily feel that we had to sound exactly like Syd or like David Gilmour or whatever.”
