What Are MIKE PORTNOY’s Plans for 2018?

Mike Portnoy was asked by Prog Magazine for his 2018 plans, to which he replied that the next 12 months will mostly see him working with Sons of Apollo – a supergroup he’s involved with alongside Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Billy Sheehan and Jeff Scott Soto. The drummer said:

2018, I will mainly be focused on Sons of Apollo… We have plans to tour all year long, all across the globe… Establishing the band name and bringing the greatest live musical spectacle to life on stage each and every place we play!

I’m especially exciting about the special covers show we’ll be doing with an orchestra in September in Bulgaria!

Beyond that, I also have a new Metal Allegiance album coming out for all you metal fans – with some select summer festival appearances – and I also start work on a new Neal Morse Band album in January… I also hope to some day continue work on the third Flying Colors album that we began last year as well.

Portnoy added:

I look forward to seeing where Sons of Apollo goes… I believe it has a little something for everyone. Prog, metal, classic rock… It’s almost like taking ALL of my bands and putting them in a melting pot!
