Prog supergroup Transatlantic have announced tour dates for North America and UK/Europe to take place in 2022, including a night at the Kentish Town O2 Forum on July 27.
The tour is in support of the group’s epic release The Absolute Universe which was released earlier this year in multiple versions. The North America dates kick off April 15 in Glenside, PA and concludes with performances at Morsefest 2022 and Cruise To The Edge. Meanwhile, the Europe/UK dates take place in July beginning with the ARTmania Festival in Romania.
“Between releasing our latest album in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and shutdown, and the already difficult task of trying to align our different schedules even in the most normal of circumstances, it was uncertain if Transatlantic would ever get to play any shows in support of The Absolute Universe," explains drummer Mike Portnoy.
“But now with the world slowly re-opening and the band already committing to a few one-off appearances in 2022 (Cruise To The Edge, Morsefest and a festival in Romania), we’re excited to announce we were able to wrangle up some headlining shows surrounding these one-offs!
“These are the ONLY shows we will be doing in support of The Absolute Universe so if we can’t make it to your area, it may be worth traveling to come see us and share these special shows with us. While we wish we could do a full proper tour, getting to play ANY shows for this album is an unexpected treat that we weren’t sure would ever happen… so better late than never!”
