    "We are proud to announce that Crimson Glory have been asked by ProgPower USA
    founder/promoter Glenn Harveston to headline the ProgPower USA tenth anniversary
    festival on Friday, September 11th, 2009 in Atlanta, GA.
    It is both a privilege and an honor to perform at this this well-established and
    highly respected American metal
    fest, and we see this as a beautifully serendipitous opportunity to pay a final and
    meaningful tribute to Midnight in a truly special manner by including the fans, as
    well as a stretching of our collective wings in anticipation of a new era of Crimson
    Glory.

    Initially we had only intended to come to ProgPower as a band to commemorate
    Midnight by presenting a memorial dedicated to his life and his work with Crimson
    Glory.
    We had of course hoped for the chance to play the festival at some point in the
    future, but from the ashes of circumstances beyond Glenn's control, this opportunity
    arose for Crimson Glory to perform sooner rather than later.

    This was totally unexpected, but after much deliberation between all members of the
    band, we feel that it is absolutely the "right" thing to do.

    We see this as the perfect scenario for us to reconnect with the many fans who have
    followed Crimson Glory over the years, as well as to present our music to those fans
    who have never seen the band play live.
    Indeed, we plan to use this performance as a bridge between the past and future of
    Crimson Glory. As one door closes, another opens; as one chapter ends, another is
    begun; this promises to be a very intimate, magical and memorable event for us as
    well as for the fest.

    Wade Black will be the main vocalist for the show, but we are making plans to have
    several guest singers performing the classic Crimson Glory songs and honoring
    Midnight's legendary legacy in their own personal and unique ways.

    John Zahner (Savatage/Crimson Glory/Jon Oliva's Pain) will also be joining the band
    for this performance and we feel very fortunate to have him sharing his talent with
    us again.

    We plan to film the performance in its entirety for a DVD release later next year as
    part of the 25th anniversary of Crimson Glory.

    While we had remained hopeful to write and perform again with Midnight, the cosmic
    powers-that-be clearly had other plans, both for our departed brother traversing the
    stars, as well as for the rest of us still here, surviving together on this
    beautiful little blue planet.

    However, it does not mean the end...it never really ends."

    --The members of Crimson Glory

    I'd be surprised if a lot of Florida metal performers weren't there. Crimson Glory, Savatage, Kamelot, Iced Earth and were everywhere down here back then. What a time.

    They were invited, but can't-pressing deadline with new album. Per Mr. Kinder on Jon's board.

    Damn, I was so looking forward to a potential appearance and the subsequent YouTube video!
