Just spent 15 minutes setting this up and filling up the data only to discover you have to be an American citizen to set this up and then withdraw the money without complications. Well shit, good luck with this then.
This first band is Soen very cool swingy jazz fusion kinda stuff.

I saw that devieira and thought it was interesting.  Noternall did a similar thing with James LaBrie last year right?

Do you think Edu will be on stage at the same time as MP at all? I'm guessing not unless it's to perform MP stuff - I don't see MP learning Angra songs.

Right, JLB played with Noturnall, within their set, last year. They played 2 JLB songs and PMU. But I guess that this will be a bit different, with MP making a whole set with songs of his career, possibly with his own band. It would be cool if MP played with Noturnall something from Angra, maybe one of the more progressive ones from Temple of Shadows or Acqua (a personal favorite).

I don't think I'd have much interest in this eventual DVD.  I dont understand why they are even doing this, just seems weird since JLB has already worked with Noturnall and MP is back to just doing his old music?

Well it's Noturnall's tour and it's probably a pretty big deal for them to have Portnoy and Edu Falashi as guests.  So they want to document it. 

It's not like Portnoy said "if I play with you, we need to make a DVD!"

Yea, I'm sure it's a big deal for them.  But it's not for me and that's fine.  If MP wants to do his old music again, I'd rather him play with his Shattered Fortress band again personally because that show was kick ass and those guys are all fantastic.  The stuff I've seen of JLB with Noturnall has mostly been bad.

Wasn't Noturnall that band that had JLB in a masked costume to enter in?

The shows with JLB were also recorded for a live DVD, and iirc, it was never released. Noturnall just went through a BIG lineup change where 3 out of 5 members suddenly left, and that might have something to do with the band never releasing it. I see this as them still wanting to put out a live album in a similar vein to what the other one was supposed to be, but with the current lineup, and that's probably how the MP/Edu Falaschi thing came to be (speculation, of course).
Btw, if any of our brazilian friends here has more info on this, please share it with us. I've tried to understand what happened with the band, but my Portuguese knowledge isn't too good :P

About the MP part of the set, I originally understood it will be MP playing the songs with Noturnall playing the rest of the parts (same case as with JLB), nowhere in the article does it say that MP will have his own band with him or anything like that, but maybe I'm reading something wrong?

As for Edu, I expect him to come and sing a couple DT songs with them as the encore.

No, I don't think you're reading it wrong. I don't think MP will have his own band, except it says Mike Orlando will be there too.

For Edu, it says he'll be doing classics of his own and participating in an Andre Matos tribute, so I'm guessing there will be two separate sets, but as you say maybe he'll do some songs for the encore of MP's set.

Mike Orlando is the new (old/rejoined) guitarist for Noturnall.

It’s as if chaossystem wrote the release.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

Oh OK, thanks.  Now it makes even more sense - probably a lot easier for them to get MP on board.

Is this another Metal Allegiance or another project? I hope its a new project, should be great with that lineup.

If this is true it sounds like this going to be best project MP has ever worked on.  No project will come close to this.

Itll be like Neal Morse, Pink Floyd, The Flower Kings, Dream Theater, Genesis, Adrenaline Mob, Katie Perry, Soundgraden, Metallica, Limp Bizkit all rolled into one.

You know, if I thought there was even a possibility of this, I'd be pumped.

But increasingly, Mike's projects are the "neo-prog stuff", the "metal" stuff, the "trad prog" stuff, the "hard rock" stuff... none of it seems to be that genre-crossing, genre-busting stuff that Dream Theater was.  The closest thing (for me, anyway) is the Flying Colors stuff. 

So I can hope, I can dream, but I feel like it's going to ultimately turn out to be generic (see the root of the word!) thrash-ish metal.

That wanders into territory I'm just not interested in although I'd give it a listen just to make sure.

I suppose that's where the opportunity lies these days.

Hard to believe that 9 years ago MP announced he was leaving
DT. DT has rebounded nicely but honestly,  I've lost the passion for
MP and his multitude of projects. I keep trying but I'm not sure
how much longer I will keep buying music that I know won't have
any lasting impact.

Don't remember the exact date but I know it was September of 2010.

I was actually listening to some DT earlier today and I was thinking to myself how awesome MP's drumming is.

I was recently listening to some live releases from MP's time in the band and this was readily apparent to me the throughout.

I do also recall seeing Mike's announcement on this forum. I don't know how long after it was made, but it was either that day or the next. My first immediate thoughts were "is this it?" Is this the end? No more music from my favorite band?"
