November 12, 2012, 2 years ago
The new supergroup featuring drummer Mike Portnoy (ADRENALIN MOB, ex-DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD), bassist Billy Sheehan (STEVE VAI, DAVID LEE ROTH), guitarist Tony MacAlpine (Steve Vai) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, PLANET X, BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION) will be filming/recording their November 14th concert at Zepp Tokyo in Tokyo, Japan for a live CD and DVD.
The virtuoso band are 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.
The band will play a one-off show on November 18th at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City, NY.
