  • DREAM THEATER Has 'No Plans' To Reunite With MIKE PORTNOY
    on February 22, 2017 at 18:28

    John Petrucci says that there are "no plans" for DREAM THEATER to reunite with drummer Mike Portnoy for a show or a tour. Portnoy, who co-founded DREAM THEATER more than thirty years ago, abruptly quit the band in September 2010 while on tour with AVENGED SEVENFOLD. He has since been replaced by Mike Mangini (ANNIHILATOR, EXTREME, JAMES LABRIE, STEVE VAI). Portnoy later revealed that he tried to rejoin DREAM THEATER, only to be rebuffed. During a February 8 question-and-answer session in Tilburg, The Netherlands, Petrucci and DREAM THEATER keyboardist Jordan Rudess were asked by a fan if they would be willing to play with Portnoy again, possibly at a show celebrating a band anniversary. The guitarist responded (see video below): "There's no plans to do anything like that. Mike's great, and he's doing many, many projects right now." Rudess jokingly added: "He's too busy for us." Continued Petrucci: "Yeah, he's in twenty bands. I don't think he has time. But, yeah, this tour celebrating 'Images [And Words]', we won't be having any past member guests." DREAM THEATER is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its milestone RIAA-gold-certified album "Images And Words" on a European tour, which kicked off on January 30 in Rome, Italy. Each performance sees the iconic progressive rock band delivering an unparalleled live set of "Images And Words" in its entirety along with fan favorites from their renowned catalogue. In a 2016 interview with Metal Rules, Portnoy stated about his time with DREAM THEATER: "I'm proud of everything I did for those 25 years. That was my life for a quarter of a century, my half of lifetime. DREAM THEATER was my baby. I formed it from the beginning, out of college and I lived a lifetime with them. So I'm proud of every one of those albums and every one of the shows. I left behind a legacy and there is a lot of people that still talk about seeing me with them. I don't count on that happening. I wouldn't count on it. I wouldn't bet money on it. If it happens, then, sure, I'm up for it. Because I'm a very sentimental person and I still love the guys and I love the fans. But I surely don't count on it and I don't plan on it, and I'm happier than ever with everything I'm doing now." […]

  • MEGADETH, THE OFFSPRING, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, Others Confirmed For MONTEBELLO ROCKFEST
    on February 22, 2017 at 17:51

    The team behind Montebello Rockfest, the largest rock festival in Canada, has unveiled the complete lineup for the twelfth edition, to be held June 22-25 in Montebello, Quebec, Canada. Rockfest features a mature lineup that consists of 125 rock, metal, punk rock, hardcore, and hip-hop acts. Most of them will make their first appearance at the festival. Previously announced headliner RAMMSTEIN from Germany will present its brand new show, a Canadian exclusive and a North American premiere. Other headliners include California's QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE in their first North American performance in three years. Iggy Pop — the Godfather of punk and a true living legend — will be in town to deliver one of the last shows before his retirement. Also in the lineup: defunct Canadian band ALEXISONFIRE for a rare reunion show, heavy metal legends MEGADETH, Californian punk rockers THE OFFSPRING (performing their album "Ixnay On The Hombre" in full), New York rappers WU-TANG CLAN, U.K. group BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, and a slew of punk rock bands from California: AFI, BAD RELIGION, PENNYWISE and GOOD CHARLOTTE (the latter for their first show in Quebec in 10 years). These artists will be joined by 311 (first show in Quebec in ten years), EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, THURSDAY (reunion), BOB MARLEY EXPERIENCE, and many more. Rockfest will welcome MESHUGGAH, PARKWAY DRIVE, AUGUST BURNS RED, Dee Snider of TWISTED SISTER (his first solo show in Canada), SPINAL TAP (special tribute), KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ALL THAT REMAINS, SOULFLY, P.O.D. (first appearance in Quebec in 13 years), ENTOMBED A.D., ENSIFERUM, TESSERACT, BORN OF OSIRIS, BREAKDOWN OF SANITY (first show in North America), CONVERGE and PROTEST THE HERO. Wristbands will be available soon at Empire stores throughout Quebec. Once again, festival passes are offered at a very reasonable price: $123 + fees and taxes — that's less than $1 per band! Visitors can pay their order in five instalments. With the excitement generated up to now, including two sold-out presales, and such a strong lineup, the team is convinced that the event will sell out for the fifth consecutive year. VIP packages are also available. Church grounds will be completely revamped this year with the first edition of Rockfest's Tattoo Convention and a new Gourmet Rock Food zone with a warm and cozy atmosphere. On the camping front, they are now adding a Mega VIP Camping package. This one is an all-included "hotel experience": tent provided and setup, mattresses, sleeping bags and parking are included, plus everything in the VIP Camping package. Incidentally, the VIP Camping package is loaded with new features, including several intimate-sized performances by artists featured at Rockfest 2017. General camping and RV camping options are also available. For more information, visit www.montebellorockfest.com. […]
