Drummer Mike Portnoy (THE WINERY DOGS, ex-DREAM THEATER) performed his last show with ADRENALINE MOB on June 16th in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the Carioca Club. He has checked in with the following update:"Amazing final show with Adrenaline Mob in Brazil. Maybe one of the best we ever had! Joined by Lzzy Hale (HALESTORM) for 'Come Undone' and Tim "Ripper" Owens (DIO DISCIPLES) for 'Mob Rules'. Sad to see this chapter of AMob end. I hope someday down the road our schedules can re-align and we can make some more magic together!"
Check out footage from the night below:
Portnoy recently issued the following statement regarding his departure:"It saddens me to announce that the four upcoming shows in Latin America this month supporting HALESTORM will be my last with Adrenaline Mob. Unfortunately, I have scheduling conflicts that prevent me from being able to fully commit to the band's future activities at the moment. As I cannot be in two places at the same time, I don't want to hold them back and have to wait for my schedule to re-open up to resume activity. I'm very proud of what we started together and the music we made over the past two years and I wish the guys all the best in the future."
Adrenaline Mob also features SYMPHONY X frontman Russell Allen, guitar virtuoso Mike Orlando (SONIC STOMP) and DISTURBED bassist John Moyer
Adrenaline Mob released their eight-track EP called Covertá featuring cover versions of some of the band's favorites in March.
