Dream Theater tickets - Dream Theater tour dates

Dream Theater Schedule

Celebrated for being one of the original trailblazers of progressive metal, Dream Theater has made significant contributions to the music world since their inception in 1985. They have claimed several awards for their technical aptitude, honored by multiple music instruction publications. For instance, Dream Theater's John Petrucci (guitarist) landed the No. 2 spot on the best metal guitarist list developed by author Joel McIver for The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists book. And, bandmate Jordan Rudess is billed as one of the greatest keyboard players by numerous publications, including MusicRadar. Collectively, the band was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2010.

Dream Theater Background

Berklee College of Music students John Petrucci (guitarist); Mike Portnoy (drummer); and John Myung (bassist) originally coined their group Majesty. They were later joined by Chris Collins (vocalist) and Kevin Moore (keyboard player). Their first effort, Majesty Demo, featured eight songs. Within six months, they sold 1,000 copies. In 1986, Collins exited the band, leaving Majesty without a frontman. They sifted through a number of possible replacements before deciding on Charlie Dominici in the fall of 1987. With the new addition to their lineup, they changed it name as well, settling on Dream Theater. The group inked a deal with Mechanic Records and put their efforts into producing their debut full-length album. But their efforts were hampered by unfortunate circumstances with their label.

Eventually, they cut ties with Mechanic and also let go of Dominici. They spent a few years on the hunt for a new vocalist. The search wrapped up in late 1991 when they received a demo tape from James LaBrie. LaBrie, who had previously played with Winter Rose, became the band's new lead vocalist. Complete again, Dream Theater signed on with the Atco Atlantic label. They put out their sophomore album, Images & Words, in 1992. Dream Theater continued to show promise with the release of their next album, Awake. But again, they faced more lineup changes. Moore (keyboardist) departed before the album was cut, leaving the remaining members to take on a temporary replacement to complete their Waking Up the World tour. The replacement, Derek Sherinian, eventually becomes a constant. After Dream Theater completed the Fix for '96 tour, the bandmates took a hiatus to focus their creative energies on other side projects. They regrouped and again dealt with personnel changes, firing Sherinian, and replacing him with Jordan Rudess. They forged ahead withScenes from a Memory, whicharrived in 1999 followed by Live Scenes from New York in 2001. Their later works, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (2002), Train of Thought (2003) and Octavarium (2005), followed the same strain of progressive metal. In 2006, they produced a live album, Score: XOX. A 29-piece orchestra backed the band on the effort as well. Systematic Chaos dropped in 2007, followed by Black Clouds & Silver Linings in 2009 and A Dramatic Turn of Events in 2011 and Dream Theater in 2013.

Dream Theater Concert Experience

True to their name, Dream Theater carries a sterling reputation for their cinematic and epic live performances. Over the years, their shows have gained momentum, becoming more extensive and dynamic with every performance. The band is also very meticulous when it comes to their set lists. They concentrate on making sure that fans who catch several shows within the same area won't experience redundancy in hearing the same songs.

And, don't forget to leave your stress at the door because Dream Theater's laid-back concerts are flavored with humor and ad-libbing. Sometimes the band even handpicks an audience member to perform on stage so make sure you come prepared!

Because of their energetic and improvisational live shows, Dream Theater never has a problem drawing in the crowds. Their largest audience on record when they appeared as headliners was in Santiago, Chile, in December 2005. It was there that 20,000 people came out to see them. So, if you're thinking about getting to a Dream Theater concert, time is of the essence. All you need to do is click right here on StubHub to get your very own Dream Theater concert tickets.
