Ever since eagle eyed Pink Floyd fans noticed cameras at some of the London gigs on the 2019 Saucerful of Secrets tour, we’ve been waiting for news with bated breath. Today we finally get some details of those recordings, in the form of the ‘Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse’ DVD and Blu-ray.
“Nick Mason, the only band member to have played on all of Pink Floyd’s studio albums, returns to the group’s earliest records, joined in the line-up by Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken. Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets took the drummer back to clubs for the first time in 1967, then to theatres, across the UK, North America and Europe, playing only music his old band had recorded before The Dark Side of the Moon. Captured from the band’s celebrated shows at London’s Roundhouse, where Pink Floyd played some of their most revered early shows in the 1960s, the film features a uniquely thrilling setlist including songs hailing from Syd Barrett’s time with the band. Only four songs from this eclectic roster have ever previously appeared on official live releases by Pink Floyd or its members. Everything else is being experienced for the first time since their original live performances.”
Clocking in at just under 2 hours, the DVD and Blu-ray have a tentative release date of April 17, 2020, although pre-order links on Amazon have since disappeared. We’ll post links as soon as pre-orders are available, so remember to check AFG regularly!
In line with recent releases, the concert film is also getting a limited cinema screening in certain locations. Details are scarce, but it looks like early March. We’ll update with more information as it becomes available.
Roger Waters has officially announced the dates for his 2020 tour of North America.
Los Angeles, CA – January 23, 2020 – Roger Waters returns to North America in 2020 with an all-new tour, and for the first time, In The Round.
Challenging, thought-provoking, the tour continues Waters’ message of Love.
“It’ll be a new show. It will be no-holds-barred. My work is to think, ‘Well, how can I make rock & roll more interesting or theatrical or exciting or visual or musical or whatever?’ That’s what I’ve spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself,” said Roger Waters of the upcoming tour in his September 2019 interview with Kory Grow, Rolling Stone.

In September of 2019, friend of the site Dr. John Haas, a History Professor at Cerritos College in California, sat down with Roger Waters to discuss a wide range of topics. Roger was kind enough to give Dr. Haas 90 minutes of his time, so get comfortable before starting this one.
Roger Waters talks about BDS, Human Rights and Pink Floyd.
