Sons of Apollo, the dynamic super group that includes former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force) hav announced the first set of tour dates of their first-ever highly anticipated worldwide tour, which kicks off in Tampa, FL on February 3 as part of the “Cruise To The Edge,” which will be sailing to Belize and Costa Maya. Once the cruise concludes, they’ll be performing in Miami, FL on February 9 as part of the “Monsters Of Rock” Cruise Pre-Show party. Tickets for the upcoming tour dates go on sale Friday, December 1 at 12pm local time.
As Mike Portnoy declares, “Ever since this lineup assembled to make PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY, the thing I’ve been most excited about is anticipating how insane I know this band is going to be on stage. Well, the wait is almost over! Here are the first U.S. dates that will get to witness this ‘five-headed musical spectacle’ live on stage in February. We plan on being on tour all year long, all over the globe, with plenty of dates now being announced for summer festivals throughout Europe, but these are the very first shows that will get to witness this amazing lineup in person for the first time. We can’t wait!”
