Mike Portnoy Confirms More European Dates For Shattered Fortress


Mike Portnoy has announced a string of extra live dates across Europe for his Shattered Fortress project. The project sees Portnoy performing with members of UK prog band Haken and the Neal Morse Band from the US, performing Portnoy’s 12 Step Suite and other Dream Theater and Portnoy material.

“This is not ‘a new band or project’, it is ‘an exclusive EVENT’ that will be making several exclusive live appearances in select markets throughout the world ONLY in 2017,” says the drummer. “The setlist at the show will be comprised of the 12 Step Suite and select other classic Mike Portnoy/Dream Theater songs. As of now, these are the only Shattered Fortress shows… after 2017, this will NOT be happening again… So don’t miss this ONCE IN A LIFETIME event while you can!”
