Never miss another 'Dream Theater' show
An Evening With: Dream Theater
The Grammy-nominated progressive metal titans have announced the first leg of their European tour, heading to the UK in February 2014 in support of their new studio album.
Released on September 24th, it marks the first self-titled release in the band's nearly three-decade career. 'Dream Theater' was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York, with John Petrucci producing and studio luminary Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush) engineering and mixing.
The album marks a brilliant new chapter for the always adventurous band, their first to have been written and recorded with drummer Mike Mangini (who joined the band in 2010) wholly integrated into the creative process from the start.
This event takes place at O2 Apollo Manchester, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Progressive metal band Dream Theater formed in 1985 under the name Majesty by John Petrucci, John Myung, and Mike Portnoy. Though a number of lineup changes followed, the three original members remained together, along with James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess, until September 2010, when Mike Portnoy left the band. In October 2010, drummer extraordinaire Mike Mangini joined.
To date the band have sold over 12 million records worldwide. They received their first-ever Grammy nomination for 'On The Backs Of Angels' for the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2012 then a second nomination in the same category in 2013 for the single 'The Enemy Inside'. 2017 saw them mark the 25th anniversary of their highest selling album; 1992's 'Images And Words', which was certified gold.
