Prog Legend Neal Morse To Play Europe

NEAL MORSE ANNOUNCES BIGGEST TOUR YET FOR TESTIMONY 2

TWO 8-PIECE BANDS FOR NORTH/CENTRAL AMERICA AND EUROPE
MIKE PORTNOY FEATURED ON NORTH AMERICAN DATES
Nashville, TN, USA—Join Neal and his two 8-piece prog powerhouses for a tour that's bigger, longer and probably louder than any before.

Experience 50 full minutes of tunes! Wait, this is Neal Morse, who are we kidding? Experience 2.5+ hours of amazing music until your prog hurts. Hear the new Testimony 2 in its entirety, plus past favorites, and maybe songs from Spock's Beard and even Transatlantic. (They haven't decided yet. So technically, it's possible that they'll play the B-side of Boston's Third Stage album. But, that's unlikely.)

And while most prog bands, like Kansas, give you five or six players, tops...on this tour, you get eight—in two different bands! Hear stuff you've never heard before, literally. Watch them devour lesser-numbered bands like Nickelback.* Be amazed at so many musicians on stage not playing Ska.

The two separate bands are catered to the North American and European continents. Because that's how we roll. In North America, you get guys from the original Testimony tour and concert DVD. And yes, it features the mighty Mike Portnoy (while supplies last).

Europe gets Neal's legendary EU extravaganza. Led by drummer and Mr. Clean stunt-double Collin Leijenaar, they bring enough win to make Charlie Sheen jealous. And it features guitar-wonderling Paul Bielatowicz from the Testimony 2 album. This band has more experience touring Neal's music than anyone. Including Neal.

But let's be serious for a moment. If you've seen Neal Morse in concert, then you already know why Classic Rock magazine listed him in their "100 Greatest Frontmen of Rock" article. His shows are non-stop music…breathtaking virtuosity fused with captivating emotional expression. And his bands throw themselves into the fray like a new group with something to prove. Morse adds, "We may never do a tour like this again…it's the big one!"

Topping it all off will be an epic show at London's legendary Koko theater. Epic even for prog. Will a DVD be taped there? Can special guests be expected? Are there really four levels of balconies there?

Find out this summer with Neal's mightiest tour yet!
