It was part of the band’s inaugural North American tour, which marks the first time Mason — who co-founded the British rock act Pink Floyd with vocalist-guitarist Syd Barrett, bassist Roger Waters and keyboardist Richard Wright in 1965 — has performed on this side of the pond since Floyd’s blockbuster Division Bell trek in 1994.

The drummer and his terrific band — consisting of Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, longtime Pink Floyd touring bassist Guy Pratt, guitarist Lee Harris and keyboardist Dom Beken — kicked off the evening with a trip back to the beginning, opening the show with an epic workout of the “Interstellar Overdrive” from “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn.”
