Supergroup Flying Colors is set to release their brand new live album, ‘Third Stage: Live in London,' filmed during their winter 2019 European tour, and captures the exhilarating sold-out final night at the iconic Shepherd’s Bush Empire, in London. Flying Colors only played 4 exclusive shows on this run, culminating at the sold-out show in London, which saw drummer Mike Portnoy stand up mid-set and quip, “Welcome to the rarest of all sightings, rarer than a UFO sighting, rarer than a sasquatch sighting. A Flying Colors sighting, here on stage in London.” The double CD includes a DVD with bonus material comprised of music videos, and concert footage of their MorseFest 2019 performance in Cross Plains, Tennessee.
“I remember how I felt right before the show in London,” recalls vocalist Casey McPherson. “I was excited because my oldest daughter and her grandmother were there. It’s always a good feeling to take the stage just let it all out!” The sight of bassist Dave LaRue and Portnoy bouncing off one another is a gloriously effortless sight to behold, whilst the wizardry of multi-instrumentalist Neal Morse throughout is hypnotic. The band flit nimble-fingered through complex yet musical treasure trove of accessible and sophisticated pop songs, jazz-fusion, progressive-rock and multi-layered vocals from McPherson, Neal Morse and Portnoy - giving the band added dimensions, many can only dream of. “Playing in Flying Colors is like being in a movie,” says McPherson. I love the other guys in the band and we always have such a good time on the road together. Our chemistry is like really good sushi. There’s not one ingredient you could replace and it taste that good. It is one of the kindest and uniquely unified band’s I’ve ever been in.”
‘Third Stage: Live In London’ captures five musicians that prove they have a special and breath-taking connection. In the words of Mr. Portnoy, it’s the “rarest of all sightings,” but what a sight to behold.
