Mike Portnoy Brings Shattered Fortress Tour To Australia This November

In a once in a lifetime experience, drum wizard Mike Portnoy will be offering nights of amazing progressive metal as he hits Australian roads this November. The ex-Dream Theater drummer will be playing The Tivoli Theatre in Brisbane, Astor Theatre in Perth, The Gov in Adelaide, Metro Theatre in Sydney and The Croxton in Melbourne.

He will be with an all-star Prog lineup—Eric Gillette, Richard Henshall & Charlie Griffiths on Guitar, Connor Green on Bass & Diego Tejeida on Keyboards—performing Dream Theater's 12 Step Suite live in its entirety.

The 12 Step Suite was penned by him and documents his battle with alcoholism. It contains five songs recorded by Dream Theater from 2002 to 2009, with titles that reflect his struggles: "The Glass Prison”, "This Dying Soul”, "The Root Of All Evil”, “Repentance" and "The Shattered Fortress”. It was originally intented to be played live as one-piece, and now the time has come. The show will also feature a selection of other Dream Theater classics!
