ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN And ANATHEMA To Take Part In Progressive Nation At Sea 2014

Sunday, 25th August 2013

Vocalist ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN (ex-THE GATHERING) and ANATHEMA are the latest acts to be confirmed to take part in Mike Portnoy’s Progressive Nation At Sea 2014, which is set to take place February 18th – 22nd 2014 on the Norwegian Pearl heading from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay and Freeport, Bahama.

Portnoy recently checked in with the following update:

“Just to clarify, Progressive Nation At Sea is not a “tour” (for those saying “come to ____”). This is a five-day unique event. You will never see a line-up of these 20 bands anytime/anywhere else. There’s no way I could put together all these bands to do an entire tour; it’s just not financially or technically possible. I know the $ is steep, but you’re getting over 20 bands with multiple performances over the course of a 5 day cruise, plus all bands and musicians on board to mingle and meet the fans. I know some bands that charge more than this for a 30 minute meet & greet!”

The lineup now includes: TRANSATLANTIC, PORTNOY SHEEHAN MACALPINE SHERINIAN, JON ANDERSON, ADRIAN BELEW’S POWER TRIO, DEVIN TOWNSEND, KING’S X, SPOCK’S BEARD, THE FLOWER KINGS, PAIN OF SALVATION, RIVERSIDE, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, THE SAFETY FIRE, TONY HARNELL & BUMBLEFOOT, BIGELF, BEARDFISH, THE DEAR HUNTER, HAKEN, JOLLY and NEXT TO NONE.
