Transatlantic to perform at the 2014 Prog Awards

Orange Amplification Presents The Progressive Music Awards will feature an exclusive live set by prog supergroup Transatlantic next month – and there's just one week to go in the tightest public poll to date.

The third annual gala ceremony takes place at London’s Underglobe, beneath the Globe Theatre, on September 11.

Fans have seven days left to vote across seven of the 12 categories, with nominees including Roger Waters, Peter Gabriel, Yes, Dream Theater, Fish, Knifeworld, Tim Bowness, Big Big Train, Anathema, Bigelf and many others.

Prog editor Jerry Ewing says: “Voting has never been closer in many of this year’s categories – but there can only be one winner! Each vote really does count. So vote now to give your favourite band every chance of winning one of our prestigious gongs!”

Transatlantic, consisting of Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, Roine Stolt and Pete Trewavas, are nominated in four categories. They say: “2014 has been an amazing year – we’ve done our first worldwide tour, and now being nominated for these Prog awards is quite a trip.

“Regardless of the outcome we’ll play a loud scaled-down set, to prove it wasn’t just lipsyncing all the way. Yes, we can actually play; and, God forbid, we may even improvise a bit!”
