The Neal Morse Band Tour in Support of “The Great Adventure”

Can a band release one proclaimed “masterpiece” after another? If you’re talking about THE NEAL MORSE BAND, the answer is a resounding “yes.”  Neal Morse (lead vocals, guitars, keyboards), Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals), Randy George (bass), Bill Hubauer (keyboards, vocals), and Eric Gillette (guitars, vocals) just released their highly anticipated new double concept album, THE GREAT ADVENTURE, on Radiant Records via Metal Blade Worldwide after releasing four videos over the past month to whet their fans’ prog rock loving appetites.

The fifth and final video for “I Got To Run”—directed by Vicente Cordero and shot in Los Angeles, CA–made its world premiere on PROG magazine’s website yesterday and is now available for streaming on the band’s official YouTube page.

THE GREAT ADVENTURE is available in three formats: a two CD package, two CD/DVD Special Edition featuring behind-the-scenes video clips of the making of the album, and three vinyl LPs. It’s the follow-up to 2016’s critically acclaimed THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM, which critics hailed as “a masterpiece,” will be the ninth studio album with Morse, Portnoy and George, and the third as a true collaboration with this current lineup. Together, Morse and Portnoy have launched four bands, but the one that has endured the longest and thus with the most musical output has been THE NEAL MORSE BAND.

Their latest round of worldwide tour dates start February 2 in Morse’s current hometown of Nashville, TN at the City Winery. Check them out at any of the following stops, including a local show for our listeners at 91.7FM WNJR in Pittsburgh on February 22 at Mr. Smalls:
