Flying Colors, the prog, pop metal rock band formed by ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse, perform a rare one-off UK concert at London’s o2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Friday 21st September.
Comprised of Dave LaRue (bass), Neal Morse (keyboards, vocals), Casey McPherson (lead vocals, guitar), Steve Morse (lead guitar), and Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals), the band will perform songs from their eponymous debut album.
Says Prog magazine of the debut album, “At every turn these guys both dazzle and demand your respect. Be it the playful nature of the lead opening cut Blue Ocean, or a dextrous bass fill from LaRue that lights up Forever In A Daze, Flying Colors sound amazing.” Meanwhile, Guitarist magazine describes the band’s sound as “Epic prog with a chorus of pop anthems.”
