Mike Portnoy Talks About The Shattered Fortress Shows

You can take MP out of DT, but you can’t take DT out of MP… 🤘🏻

I’ve spent the last 6 & 1/2 years doing a million things that have NOTHING to do with DT…making all different kinds of music with so many great musicians…but intensionally NOT playing or revisiting DT material…

But now for the remainder of 2017 in celebration of my 50th Birthday and as MY GIFT BACK TO YOU, I AM FINALLY READY to pay tribute to my past and revisit this music!

These Shattered Fortress shows will be a fully-immersive MP/DT experience…The type of show, setlist & environment that I ALWAYS delivered to you great fans for all of those 25 years between 1985 to 2010

Everything from the house music when you enter the venue (cool rarities taken from my extensive DT archives) to the rare DT-era MP items I will have at the merchandise stand…even down to my stage clothes from previous DT tours that I will pulling out of retirement from my closet! (I hope they still fit!! Hahaha)

All leading up to the incredible show & setlist I have prepared for you…
Delivered by some of the best musicians in Prog today (the amazing HAKEN along with Prog’s newest guitar hero: Eric Gillette)…all playing this music with loving passion and extreme precision.

For those of you that constantly post about missing me in DT, this is your chance to revisit those days with me…

Once the clock strikes 2018, I will be returning to all of the other bands and music in my life…(Flying Colors, Transatlantic, The Neal Morse Band, The Winery Dogs, Metal Allegiance and my brand new all-star band with Derek Sherinian)

For all of you that have been posting online for the past 6 years wanting to see me to “go back to DT”, unless those guys have a change of heart, it seems this is the closest you are going to get!!
There are no guarantees for tomorrow…there’s only TODAY!
So I am seizing the fuck out of the day… : )

This is the ONLY (and possibly last??) chance to share the DT experience with me and hear me play this music again…
THIS IS IT…CARPE DIEM!!

The biggest show of the tour at the 013 in Holland is ALREADY SOLD OUT! That means most a lot of others will as well…so get your tickets NOW to insure a spot in sharing these wonderful memories with me and celebrating my 50th Birthday with this music that was such a huge part of my life…
