Mike Portnoy took to his ever popular social media pages to announce the 5th performance of Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress, this time in Mexico. Joining the event are Haken and Next to None.
Here is what he had to say:
“Hola Amigos! I am so excited to be bringing my Shattered Fortress show to Mexico!
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 ESP Prog Night 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!!
I am also excited to announce that my special guests at this show will be one of the greatest Prog bands of today: HAKEN
As well as one of the greatest Prog bands of tomorrow: Next To None
This is going to be an amazing evening of music!”
Tix will go on sale next week:
