Rock Radio Network/touring confusion

  • Rock Radio Network/touring confusion

    Those of you familiar with London's Rock Radio Network and their mailinglist, have probably read the following 'news item' :

    Quote:
    DREAM THEATER's Mike Portnoy told London's Rock Radio Network yesterday that the band's current tour with Deep Purple and ELP may be their last. In addition to 20 North American dates, the band are playing a one-off "semi-acoustic" Fan Club-only gig of old, new & cover tunes in Rotterdam on Monday and a special 2 set, 3 hour-plus gig in Paris on Thursday, both of which will be recorded by Kevin Shirley for a new live album and possible home video for release in the fall...

    Please do not panic or email Mike Portnoy about this. As it turns out, Rock Radio Network misunderstood Mike. The "final dates" he mentioned to them, are simply the final dates (as in 'confirmed') for the DT/ELP/DP tour and final dates for the current Dream Theater tour (not final EVER!).
