The band affectionately and unofficially known as PSMS - featuring MIKE PORTNOY, BILLY SHEEHAN, TONY MACALPINE, DEREK SHERINIAN - are performing in Tokyo, Japan tonight (November 14th). According to Portnoy, the band is "filming/recording for a new live DVD/CD (hopefully BluRay too!). Japan are you ready to be part of music history?"
The virtuoso band is playing an all-instrumental set consisting of material from each of their solo records and their previous collaborations as well as classic instrumental covers and extended solo spots. Mike Portnoy formed the lineup to perfom at two drum events at the NAMM show last January. Due to overwhelming response that band has decided to take their show on tour.
"I knew when assembling this lineup that it would be a magical musical experience that would be a blast for us as well as the fans! I can't wait to play again with these tremendous musicians and share the experience with you all at these special shows!" says Portnoy.
Tour dates are now as follows:
November14 - Tokyo, Japan - Zepp
16 - Nagoya, Japan - Diamond Hall
18 - New York, NY - BB King's
The band recently posted a promo clip for their new InstruMENTAL Inspirations DVD, which offers an inside look at the project and is available on tour. Check it out below:
