Nashville, TN—When progressive rock icon Neal Morse was preparing to tour his highly acclaimed 2012

studio release, “Momentum,” he turned to YouTube to audition touring players to support his faithful duo
of Mike Portnoy (drums) and Randy George (bass).

He had high hopes, but the final players selected from more than 70 applicants dramatically surpassed his
expectations. They hit the road for an 8-stop North American tour. And now that band’s epic New York
performance is captured on the new “Live Momentum” 2DVD/3CD Box Set.

Fortified by the energetic live contributions of Eric Gillette (keyboards, guitars, vocals), Bill Hubauer (key-
boards, violin, sax, vocals) and Adson Sodré (guitar and vocals), Morse, Portnoy and George blazed through
two lengthy sets that spanned Morse’s entire, highly-heralded catalog, with the exception of material from
“Testimony 2,” which was previously captured in 2011’s “Testimony 2: Live in Los Angeles” box set.

The setlist is mammoth. The players are virtuosic. Their performances are jaw-dropping. And this dynamic
box set documents it all—including a special one-hour behind the scenes look at the tour.

It’s a Morse tradition to go big, and this new release unquestionably extends his powerful legacy of merging
musical madness with addictive melodies in epic compositions that showcase the masterful musicianship of
every member on stage.

“Live Momentum” reveals the exceptionally inspired nature of this unique band and leaves listeners and
viewers mimicking those in the audience on this tour—shaking their heads and wondering, “How could they
possibly top that?”

This ENORMOUS 3 cd / 2 dvd set includes 4 hours of video, including and exclusive Tour Documentary and over 3 hours of audio.

Momentum - Full Speed Ahead!
What can be said about Neal Morse except that he is the gold standard by which Prog Rock is measured in this day and age. If you were impressed and thrilled by the 2011 release of T2 live with its 5 disc set, then you will be doubly so by Momentum Live. Randy George and Mike Portnoy with Neal as the core of the group along with the new guys give a very muscular and nuanced performance of the new songs as well as what we can probably now call Neal Morse classics. It is difficult to write a concise review because there is so much here to immerse oneself in. The musicianship is top notch of course and the setlist is a great one. Also, for those Blu Ray owners this one has that format. Once again Neal Morse has given us a work that radiates his love for music and his faith and it is pure pleasure to be able to enjoy this release again and again!
