Budapest Park, the city’s main open-air live venue on the Pest side of Rákóczi Bridge, has just announced a couple of star names confirmed for this summer’s line-up. Stalwart drummer of Pink Floyd, Nick Mason, will be playing in June while July sees an appearance by legendary jazz bassist Marcus Miller.
The only member of the band to have played on all their studio albums, Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason will be bringing over his Saucerful of Secrets project, launched in 2018. Featuring ex-Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp and much-travelled bassist Guy Pratt, Mason’s band revisit Floyd’s psychedelic years of the late 1960s, performing rarely heard old favourites such as Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun and Arnold Layne. The show is scheduled for 22 June.
Multi-Grammy winner, jazz legend Marcus Miller has played with the biggest names in the business, including Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. Currently touring in California, Miller will be promoting his most recent album, Laid Black, with a series of dates across Europe this summer. The Budapest one, a revisit for Miller after last year’s show at Müpa, will be on 15 July.
