Mike Portnoy issues video message to fans about Adrenaline Mob’s upcoming UK & European tour

Legendary ex-Dream Theater sticksman Mike Portnoy has taken time out of his schedule to film a short video message from his studio for his UK and European fans, which reveals what they can expect from his upcoming debut live tour with heavy metal super group ADRENALINE MOB (Mike Portnoy, Russell Allen, Mike Orlando and John Moyer).

Watch Mike’s video message here:


Portnoy has also commented: “After having now given the US a taste of The Mob live, I cannot wait to bring the incredible raw energy of this band to Europe and the UK! It’s going to be a blast to play a bunch of the great festivals that have always been summer highlights for me as well as making the rounds in select cities with our own club shows.”
