From Steven Wilson's Facebook page:

"Please note that the SW band for the tour will change between the European and American legs. The line up for all of the European shows will be the same as on the forthcoming album: Guthrie Govan - guitar, Adam Holzman - keyboards, Theo Travis - flute/sax, Nick Beggs - bass, and Marco Minnemann - drums. However, due to another touring commitment, Marco is unable to join the band on the North / South American leg of the tour. Sorry as I am to not have Marco for the whole tour, I'm very happy to announce that Chad Wackerman will be taking over the drum stool for these shows. Chad is perhaps best known for being Frank Zappa's drummer for 7 years in the eighties, until Zappa's retirement from live performance, but he is also a composer and band leader in his own right, and has performed with many other high profile artists. Needless to say Chad is an extraordinary musician who will bring his own talents and unique style to the SW band."

I'm not really a big fan of SW and this whole "modern prog" movement, it's too slick and usually the vocals ruin it for me(Dream Theater being the absolute worst). I've got a few PT CDs I never listen to anymore(In Absentia, Deadwing, Fear Of a Blank Planet). I'll have to give 'em a spin and see if there's anything I still like.

Anyways, I just watched a few current clips and this solo lineup looks sort of interesting. Definite bonus w/ Chad on drums. Might have to check out the Buffalo show on 4/21. It's under $25, won't feel bad if I end up not liking most of the show.

I dig In Fear of a Blank Planet and The Incident. My personal PT fav albums are Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun.....which are called their "pop" albums. The metal stuff is kinda eh and the early Floyd sounding stuff just got old to me. I dig Steven's vocals if anything because most "metal" sounding groups don't take the time to learn how to sing. Porcupine Tree is very overrated though.

Overrated ?? the band started in 1989 and nobody cared about them until maybe 2007 !!

From Steven Wilson's Facebook page:

A message to US / Canadian fans coming along to one of the forthcoming SW band shows; please be aware that due to a very important family matter,
and having done a fantastic job with us at the first 2 shows in Tampa and Atlanta,
new drummer Chad Wackerman has had to leave the tour to fly home to California.
Fortunately, Marco is able to rejoin us for these shows, starting with Philly tomorrow,
following which Chad will be rejoining the band in South America next month. Sorry for the confusion!

They will play in São Paulo on a Monday. Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to attend. I would go only to see Chad.
