Be Prog! My Friend announces first bands

Be Prog! My Friend have confirmed the first two bands for 2018’s festival!

Following on from winning the award for Best Event at the recent Progressive Music Awards, the Barcelona based festival have confirmed the first two bands for 2018’s edition of the festival; SONS OF APOLLO and PAIN OF SALVATION. Speaking about the first announcement, the festival organisers say, “we are very pleased to share with you the first two bands for the 5th Be Prog! My Friend festival. SONS OF APOLLO are a supergroup featuring Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Billy Sheehan and Jeff Scott Soto who have joined forces to create this amazing project. This is the first European show they’ve announced. They will release Psychotic Symphony next month but if you have listened to their song Coming Home you know that this is a supergroup who can create brilliant music to back it up. This is really a very special opportunity to see all these names on the same stage. Joining them are PAIN OF SALVATION who recently released their colossal album In The Passing Light Of Day which has made them a must see in the progressive world. Seeing them live is simply a blast so for the festival next year we needed to have them play.”
