The Neal Morse Band Sells-Out in Cleveland with Brilliant New CD, ‘THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM’!

Neal Morse Band

The good news is: On Saturday, January 28th, the Neal Morse Band will perform at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio!  Prog Rockers will get the rare opportunity to witness this majestic group of eclectic musicians in a intimate and up-close setting. The bad news – the Cleveland show is Sold-Out, although VIP passes remain for the Meet and Greet in Cleveland. Other than a few select outdoor concert appearances, the Neal Morse Band in the past has only performed in select cities within the USA, while concentrating on Europe with sold-out shows.

‘THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM‘ is their newest release and the double concept album has taken the Prog-Rock world by storm. The inspired positive messages through strife resulting in glory are an uplifting spiritual breathtaking experience on record and in a live setting! The astounding new CD, ‘THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM‘ is the follow-up masterpiece from 2015’s , ‘The Grand Experiment‘ and the 2012 release, ‘Momentum’.

I’ve often wondered why Progressive-Rock bands don’t tour throughout the USA?  This is your chance to support the top Prog-Rock band to ever come out of the USA!

I heavily, suggest you order tickets for the Neal Morse Band before they sell-out their entire tour!

Mike Portnoy says, “OMG…I am BLOWN AWAY.. I am completely FLOORED…By the time I was rounding the album’s grand finale, the goosebumps were so overwhelming I actually uncontrollably wept like a baby!!! (I swear…..) In my 30+ year career, I consider myself to have made 2 masterpiece concept albums: Dream Theater’s Scenes From A Memory & Transatlantic’s The Whirlwind…

Ladies & Gentlemen, In my opinion, we have ABSOLUTELY TOPPED them both! THIS is THE ALBUM of mine (& Neal’s) careers…it’s so monumentally EPIC and perfect in every way….”

Neal Morse (ex-vocalist of Spock’s Beard, guitar, and keyboards) is an incredible song-writer and composer, producing epic songs and story-telling recordings that reach your heart and touch your soul. His vocals at times are reminiscent of John Lennon and the harmonies of The Beatles, while on other tunes, his tone reminds me of Dennis DeYoung. Make no mistake about it, his epic repertoire of material with side-projects, Transatlantic and his other band, Flying Colors are as extensive; as is his solo career!

The Neal Morse Band also features long-time friends, musicians, Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater and current, Winery Dogs member), on drums/percussion/vocals and bassist/vocals, Randy George. Keyboardist, vocals, Bill Hubauer and guitarist/vocals, Eric Gillette join the Neal Morse Band to create the magnificent line-up of stellar musicians!

November 22, 2016 – Eager fans of THE NEAL MORSE BAND—singer/guitarist/keyboardist Neal Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Randy George, keyboardist Bill Hubauer and guitarist Eric Gillette—proved their loyalty to the Prog Rock band, which helped their latest release, THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM, land on various Billboard album charts:

#7 Current Hard Music Albums
#27 Top Current Rock Albums
#18 Record Label Independent Current Albums

And across the pond, the album debuted in Germany at #25 (All Album Sales).

The highly anticipated double-disc concept album was released November 11 on Radiant Records via Metal Blade Records/SONY. It’s the eighth studio album with Morse, Portnoy and George, and the second as a true collaboration with this current lineup. Clocking in at over 100 minutes, this amazing piece of Prog storytelling will leave you breathless, exhilarated, amused and fulfilled in a way that only inspired music can. It’s available in various formats: a two CD package, a Special Edition with the two CDs and “The Making Of A Dream” DVD, or as three vinyl records along with two CDs.

THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM has already been racking up one rave review after another from all over the globe:

“All in all, this is quite an achievement by a group of musicians that didn’t need to improve upon already magnificent careers filled with incredible albums…THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM does the impossible and exceeds all expectations. It is absolutely a jaw-dropping release that will no doubt rank alongside the best albums by Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy, if not above them.”


“THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM is an engaging progressive rock concept album of epic proportions…”


” THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM sets a new high-water mark in an already impressive career.”

–PROG Magazine (U.K.)

“Unique, moving and deeply moving, and blasts through all boundaries of rock music expression…I’ve never heard anything more epic.”
