Mike Portnoy To Tour With Neal Morse

Posted by on March 7, 2011

It’s been revealed that ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy will be touring with multi-instrumentalist Neal Morse (Transatlantic, Spock’s Beard) this coming May. Morse will be touring with musicians who appeared on his 2003 progessive rock concept album Testimony, which highlights his conversion to Christianity. Portnoy, as well as Kansas’ Kerry Livgren, made appearances on Morse’s album.

Portnoy and Morse have collaborated on many different projects, including Transatlantic, Yellow Matter Custurd (their Beatles tribute band) and a new prog rock all-star group the two have been working on. It’s nice to see Portnoy keeping himself busy with new music endevors instead of busying himself with responding to drama. Check out the rundown of dates Portnoy will be playing with Morse on below:

May 19 – Nashville, TN – (venue to be announced)
May 21 – Mexico City, MEX – (venue to be announced)
May 23 – New York, NY – The Blender Theater at Gramercy
May 24 – Springfield, VA – Jaxx
May 26 – San Francisco, CA – The Avalon in Santa Clara
May 27 – Seattle, WA – Experience Music Project Theater
May 28 – Whittier, CA – Whittier Theater
