We are delighted to welcome Guy Pratt at the beautiful Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American, following his incredible world tour with Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets, for an evening of chatter and some music too.
The event takes place at the hotel's intimate setting of the ‘Mata Hide Away’ named after the infamous courtesan and convicted spy Mata Hari. The Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American - as you all will know - is featured in the legendary photo shoot by Nico van der Stam during Pink Floyd's first visit to the Netherlands in April 1967.
Tickets for this event are very limited and will be available from this site Friday 9 December on 10.00am (cet).
