Concerts: Liquid Tension Experiment's 10th Anniversary Tour Includes CalProg Sponsored Dat

Posted on Saturday, March 15 @ 19:41:51 UTC by nightowl

CalProg is proud to announce a rare appearance by the explosive progressive instrumental band LTE. [...]

In 1998 and 1999, Liquid Tension Experiment released two instrumental albums that set the prog world on fire. [I'll say; my reaction to LTE was "Wow!" and to LTE2 "Yowza!!" -ed.] The project featured Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy & John Petrucci on drums & guitar (respectively), virtuoso keyboardist Jordan Rudess and bass legend Tony Levin.

After the success of the two albums and the project's undeniable chemistry, Rudess was asked to join Dream Theater full-time and the project was put on the shelf for an indefinite hiatis .... until now!

Back together for a select number of US dates, the quartet is reuniting to revisit the magical music they created 10 years ago and tap back into their chemistry for a whole new musical experiment!
