Former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy has taken his social media to react to Live Nation’s new decision about the artists’ and tours and described it as ‘corporate greed.’

Recently, the 53-year-old drummer broke his silence through his social media and reacted to Live Nation’s ‘acceptable’ decision, which says most of the new policies shift financial burdens to artists. When he sent a tweet about that decision, a fan responded to his tweet and called him a ‘victim.’ Mike Portnoy replied to his tweet and said they’re the victims.

Mike Portnoy wrote: “This is corporate greed at its worst! Face vomiting Live Nation is changing their policies for when touring eventually does resume to where the artists will have to struggle to make ANYTHING and at the same time be liable for THEIR losses!! Absolutely unacceptable.”

A follower named Shadow Caster replied: “Nothing will change until YOU change it. Stop talking like a victim and come up with a solution that doesn’t involve them. They are not just gonna one day decide they are being unfair and start writing checks. They will keep squeezing while you keep crying. Thats what bullies do.”

Mike Portnoy answered and said: “Yeah right…like *I* have that kind of power??? Gimme a break…I play clubs and theaters! It’s gonna take artists like U2, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Lady Gaga etc to stand up and make a change for all of us…and yes, WE are indeed the victims here.”
