||NEAL MORSE BAND AND THE FLOWER KINGS ANNOUNCE JOINT UK TOUR FOR 2013
3rd January 2013
To celebrate 'Inside Out Music 20 Years Anniversary', progressive rock superstars Neal Morse and Roine Stolt take both their bands on a world tour together in selected cities, in spring 2013, for an evening of sunny symphonic prog.
Two bands will share the stage – The Flower Kings with epic new album 'Banks Of Eden' and Neal Morse feat. Mike Portnoy with his latest top shelf prog-rocking offering 'Momentum' - this double bill will offer an evening of some of the best, most energetic and most melodic and vital progressive rock on the planet since the heyday of ELP, Pink Floyd, Yes and Genesis!

With two members of Transatlantic it is not far away to a Transatlantic mini reunion as grand finale!
Roine comments: "We hope to make every evening special - with jamming and interacting - a modern 'The Last Waltz' that can happen with 11 musicians, no egos and 3,5 hours to kill. There were the times of Fillmore East & Fillmore West in the USA in late 60's, it had all these insanely great bills every time, it's rock history and it's been in our system since we were teenagers.
"With The Flower Kings we have fans seeing four or five shows of a tour and we want to surprise them too. We love our fans dearly and we even know many of them, not only by face, but by name. Those smiling faces are the true reward and it's like seeing old friends. I know so many fans in Peru, Argentina, Indonesia, Greece, Israel, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Finland, Norway etc. want to see a show like this, but for geographic, political or health reasons don't have the chance or funds to get to a show like this. But we want to step into their living rooms and bring this joy to everyone, every age so we are planning to record the show, for a future release.
"Just having 11 musicians on tour together will be great - the sheer musicality onboard that bus will most likely make it implode. We are all looking forward to this grand adventure in February 2013 and to play together and bring all this talent together for a night to remember."
