SONS OF APOLLO Cancel All Remaining Summer Festival Appearances
August 1, 2018
Due to "unforeseen circumstances" beyond the band's control, SONS OF APOLLO has been forced to cancel all of its remaining summer festival appearances.
The group states: "We sincerely apologize to all of the fans that were looking forward to these appearances.
"The headlining show in Budapest originally scheduled for August 18th has now been moved into our fall schedule and will now happen on September 17th. All tickets for the originally scheduled August date will still be honored."
SONS OF APOLLO is the progressive metal supergroup featuring former DREAM THEATER bandmates Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, as well as bassist Billy Sheehan (MR. BIG, THE WINERY DOGS),guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (GUNS N' ROSES) and vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (JOURNEY, TALISMAN, W.E.T.).
SONS OF APOLLO will perform at the ProgPower USA festival in early September before heading over to Japan for three shows and kicking off a European tour on September 15 in Raismes, France.
SONS OF APOLLO incorporates the progressive style and individual technical prowess that Portnoy and Sherinian shared together in DREAM THEATER combined with the swagger and groove of VAN HALEN, DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN.
SONS OF APOLLO's debut album, "Psychotic Symphony", came out last October via InsideOut Music. It sold around 5,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release, earning the band the top position on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, which focuses on top-selling albums by new or developing acts, defined as those who have never appeared on the top 100 of the Billboard 200.
