Mike Portnoy Announces The Progressive Nation At Sea Tour

Mike Portnoy hasn't done a Progressive Nation Tour since 2011, and that was when he was still with Dream Theater. Now he's back with a new tour, new bands, and a new venue completely!

If you consider the ocean a venue… the cruise will take place from February 18 to 22 and will cost you at least $700. Without further ado, and all the information you'll need below this, here's the lineup:

Portnoy, Sheehan, MacAlpine, Sherinian (Sixthman)
Jon Anderson
King's X
Spock's Beard
The Flower Kings
Pain of Salvation
Tony Harnell and Bumblefoot
The Dear Hunter
Next To None

According to Portnoy:

In 2008 and 2009, I created a touring package called Progressive Nation and with Dream Theater headlining. We did three full tours (two in North America and one in Europe) that showcased a variety of bands that embraced the spirit and musicality of progressive music.

Well, after a five-year hiatus, I have decided to resurrect Progressive Nation and this time we are taking it to the seas! But rather than a four-band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to over a dozen of today's greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists (and there may be one or two more still to be confirmed).
