news mike portnoy shattered fortress heavy metal
Drum legend Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, The Neal Morse Band, ex-Dream Theater) has checked in with the following update:
“I am so excited to be bringing my Shattered Fortress show to Spain and Be Prog. My Friend.!
The Shattered Fortress is myself and an all-star Prog lineup performing Dream Theater’s 12 Step Suite live in it’s entirety for the first time. This is not ‘a new band or project’ for me, it is ‘an exclusive EVENT’ that will be making several select live appearances in select markets throughout the world in 2017…and Be Prog My Friend is one of the selected shows. The setlist at the show will be comprised of the 12 Step Suite and select other Dream Theater songs that I’ve written the lyrics to.
Keep in mind, I have no plans (or interest) in revisiting DT material in any of my other bands…this is not an ongoing project or career move…this is merely a unique event that I am doing in select markets in 2017 to share with fans around the world…so catch it while you can!”
