‘Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse’ Available for Digital Purchase Oct. 27, Rental Nov. 10 From Sony

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse, a film documenting a series of performances from the band of all-stars led by Pink Floyd’s drummer, will be available for purchase on 4K Ultra HD, HD and SD Digital on Oct. 27, and available for digital rental Nov. 10 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse is a live recording taken from the band’s sold-out shows at the London venue in May 2019. The film revives both the hits from Pink Floyd’s earliest live shows, as well as songs never performed live by Floyd.

Nick Mason, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken, known as Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, came together with the simple idea of playing early Pink Floyd — the songs pre-Dark Side of the Moon — that had not been given a live outing in decades. What started with a simple suggestion from Mason, “Why don’t we get a rehearsal room and play some things and see how we feel about it,” turned into the artist’s first live performances since 2005’s Live 8.
