guitarist John Petrucci
will perform with bandmate Mike Mangini
on drums and Dixie Dregs
bass player Dave LaRue
on the South American G3 tour in October with Joe Satriani
and Steve Morse
It will be a G3 homecoming of sorts for LaRue, who performed with Joe Satriani during the Super Colossal era, and has worked with Morse since 1988.
LaRue is also a member of progressive rock supergroup Flying Colors
, who count among their ranks Morse and how's this for a small world former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy
Petrucci's only solo album to date is 2005's "Suspended Animation
", which features LaRue on bass.
Confirmed dates for the G3 South American tour, so far, are:
Oct. 11- Citibank Hall - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
