MUSIC NEWS: Dream Theater Announce UK/European Tour
Dream Theater have announced the UK/European leg of their Evening With tour, celebrating their latest album Distance Over Time and twenty years of Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory.
“The response to Distance Over Time has been overwhelmingly positive and we are really looking forward to playing some of the songs from that album live for our European audiences in an ‘Evening With’ setting along with our full headlining show production,” comments guitarist John Petrucci.
“For those of you who were there when we premiered Scenes From A Memory live in Europe 20 years ago, this will not only be a trip down memory lane but also the chance to see it presented in a completely new light and the way it was always intended to be. Our updated presentation has all-new animated video content depicting the characters and storyline through the entire show as they’ve never been ‘scene’ before!
“For those of our fans who were either not born yet, too young, or had not yet been introduced to DT 20 years ago, this will be a fresh opportunity to experience Scenes live for the first time in its entirety. We can’t wait to perform for all of you!”
