Dresm Theater have announced that they’ll return to Europe for 28 live dates in early 2020. Next year the band celebrate the 20th anniversary of their masterpiece “Metropolis pt 2 Scenes from a memory” and also perform material from their last album “Distance over time”.
The show will get under way in Amsterdam on January 11, 2020 and wrap up with two sets in UK in London and Glasgow on February 21, 2020 and 23 respectively.
Guitarist John Petrucci says: “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.
“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!”
Petrucci adds: “For those of our fans who were either not born yet, too young, or had not yet been introduced to Dream Theater 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!”
The tickets are available from Dream Theater Official Website.
