(Prog) Mike Portnoy has extended "an open invitation" to his former Dream Theater bandmates to join him for his planned performance of his 12 Step Suite at his 50th birthday bash next year.

The drummer recently revealed that he'll perform all five tracks of the 12 Step Suite in their entirety and in sequence on the Cruise To The Edge floating festival, which sets sail from Tampa, Florida, on February 7 and runs until February 11.

The 12-Step Suite is made up of five tracks, each of which featured on separate Dream Theater albums and Portnoy said he alway intended to play it live.

Now he adds that he'd love his former bandmates to join, but he says he doubts that will happen. Portnoy tells The National Student: "I would love nothing more than to perform it with them. But they've made it clear that they have no intention in reuniting at any point. So, life is short, this is going to be my 50th birthday and it just felt like the right time and place to finally play this music." Read more here.
