Neal Morse Band join Cruise To The Edge

The Neal Morse Band have joined Yes’ annual Cruise To The Edge, frontman Morse and drummer Mike Portnoy have confirmed.

They’ll perform a tribute set to Yes bassist Chris Squire, who died earlier this month.

Marillion, Anathema, Bigelf, Caravan, Spock’s Beard, Lifesigns and others line up alongside the host band aboard the Norwegian Pearl in the Caribbean from November 15 to 19.

Portnoy says in a promotional video: “It’s very bittersweet, this Cruise To The Edge, because we’re all very sad about Chris. But we’re going to go there and celebrate his life and career. It’s going to be a great celebration.”

Morse last week revealed details of a five-hour live set.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
