Progressive Nation founder Mike Portnoy elaborates: "In 2008 and 2009, I created a touring package called Progressive Nation and with Dream Theater headlining, we did three full tours (two in North America and one in Europe) that showcased a variety of bands that embraced the spirit and musicality of progressive music. Well after a 5 year hiatus, I have decided to resurrect Progressive Nation and this time we are taking it to the seas! But rather than a 4-band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to OVER TWENTY of today's greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists! Myself and my former DT bandmate Derek Sherinian have teamed up with Sixthman (who have done incredibly successful cruises with Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the annual KISS Cruise to name a few) as well as our friends at Inside Out Music and look forward to a very successful inaugural launch of Progressive Nation At Sea from February 18th thru 22nd, 2014 We are so excited to take part in this historic maiden voyage and look forward to sharing this one of a kind event with fans from all around the world!"
