After making their live debut this past week with four intimate club shows in London, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason‘s new group, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, has announced plans for a full European tour in September.
The trek kicks off on September 2 in Stockholm, Sweden, and visits 14 other cities on mainland Europe before heading to Mason’s U.K. home country for six more dates, winding down with a September 29 show in Nottingham. To buy tickets, visit TheSaucerfulofSecrets.com.
