Nick Mason delays 2022 tour

The decision was made “with great regret … due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid pandemic,” according to an official statement posted on Twitter. Saucerful of Secrets was formed in 2018, and focuses primarily on the early music of Pink Floyd. Mason is joined by Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, longtime Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris and keyboardist Dom Beken.

The trek was to hit North America in January and February, but new dates are undetermined as of press time. The band is set to perform in Ireland and The UK in April and May 2022 before hitting Europe in May, June and July.

They advised the ticket holders to await for further information from the venue and/or ticket company where they purchased their tickets.

“We enjoyed our 2019 tour in America so much,” Mason said just two months ago, when this trek was first announced. “We’re happy to be back at it and playing Pink Floyd music fans may have never had the chance to experience live.”

A surge in the ongoing pandemic has caused a number of recent cancellations, particularly in areas with large populations. Phish, LCD Soundsystem, the Strokes and Patti Smith have postponed major upcoming concerts in New York City, citing the recent upticks in positive cases.

“This variant’s ability for rapid transmission is unprecedented,” Phish said in a statement posted to the their website. “We are also mindful that a significant number of people travel for these shows and then return to their communities, and we want to avoid accelerating transmission of the virus.”
