Hot on the heels of 2016’s most acclaimed progressive rock release, “The Similitude Of A Dream”, The Neal Morse Band announces the massive live release of a once-in-a-lifetime concert event: “Morsefest 2015” on March 24 via Radiant Records via Metal Blade Records/Sony. Pre-orders are available on Radiant’s website now. A trailer for the package can be found on Neal Morse‘s official YouTube page. Check out the official trailer below.
In addition to The Neal Morse Band, featuring drummer Mike Portnoy, the 38 musicians on stage create a prog orchestra. Over two nights (one on each video disc) in 2015, they perform new arrangements of material from Neal Morse‘s career. The two concerts span over five hours, venturing beyond the studio versions they’re based on. In addition to complete performances of the “Sola Scriptura” and “Question” albums, there are songs from Spock’s Beard (featuring guest Nick D’Virgilio), Transatlantic, and surprises — including performances with guitar legend Phil Keaggy. Accompanied by extravagant visuals, including three video screens and live dancers, “Morsefest 2015” is the most massive live release of Morse‘s career.
