On September 3, 2013, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release “Live In Tokyo” by PORTNOY SHEEHAN MACALPINE SHERINIAN on DVD, Blu-ray, 2CD and digital audio and video formats.
“Live In Tokyo” was filmed/recorded on November 14, 2012 at Zepp Tokyo. This 95-minute concert is the first release of material from the PSMS supergroup, and it showcases a wide range of instrumental performances from each of the members’ careers and collaborations.
Drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Billy Sheehan, guitarist Tony MacAlpine and keyboardist Derek Sherinian brought their collective strengths to Japan this past fall. The result was a 16-track deep cornucopia of the members’ individual highlights. The group unleashed a fierce storm of sonic musicianship on songs such as “Shy Boy” from Sheehan’s band TALAS, MacAlpine’s “The Stranger”, Sherinian’s “Apocalypse 1470 B.C.” and DREAM THEATER’s “A Change Of Seasons: The Crimson Sunrise”. The DVD and Blu-ray also offer an exclusive peek at this production with a behind-the-scenes featurette.
