Dream Theater tickets - Dream Theater tour dates

Dream Theater Tour Schedule

If you are looking for some of the most talented rock musicians in the world playing fast, hard, and loud music that remains intricate and well thought out, then Dream Theater is exactly what you need. The band first got together at the Berklee School of Music in 1985 and since then their live shows have become the stuff of legend all over the world. Prog rock fans across the globe are constantly on the lookout for Dream Theater tour dates so they can catch their favorite progressive metal band tearing up the stage and now the band has lined up a slew of North American tour dates!

The tour kicks off on March 20th at the legendary Massey Hall in Toronto, Ontario. After a stop in Montreal Dream Theater heads south to the United States with shows in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, and Washington D.C. An April 4th stop at the Filmore in Detroit, Michigan sees the band embarking on the Midwest portion of their tour which includes shows in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri before heading to Denver, Colorado on their way to the west coast. A stop in Vancouver, British Columbia begins the west coast potion of Dream Theater's tour which also includes stops in Washington and Oregon before three shows in California. The first California show is at the Warfield in San Francisco followed by a show in Riverside before wrapping up the tour with a last show at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.


About the Band

Though the members of the band first got together at the Berklee School of Music it was not until after they dropped out of the school and headed home to Long Island that they adopted the name Dream Theater, having previously been known as Majesty. They quickly gained popularity for their hard rocking brand of metal that also showcased extraordinary musicianship and provided for fascinating and intense live shows. The band has long been known for their stage presence and their theatricality when performing. They have released twelve studio albums to date: When Dream and Day Unite, Images and Words, Awake, Falling into Infinity, Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, Train of Thought, Octavarium, Systematic Chaos, Black Clouds & Silver Linings, A Dramatic Turn of Events, and 2013's self-titled Dream Theater. The 1999 album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory was named the number 95 greatest rock guitar album of all time by Guitar World and the band received their first ever Grammy nomination in 2011, clearly Dream Theater are nowhere near slowing down.


Breakthrough

Images and Words, Dream Theater's 1992 album reached number 61 on the Billboard 200 chart and went on to become the band's biggest selling album, achieving gold status. Two years later the band released the follow up album, Awake, which entered the charts at number 32. The band had clearly made its mark with Images and Words and rock lovers across the world were eagerly awaiting the band's next album. To this day Dream Theater remains a true titan of prog rock and one of the biggest draws in all of hard rock. No lover of heavy music will want to miss the chance to see them performing live.


The Experience

Finally, after months and possibly years of waiting tonight is the night that you get to see the heavy metal heroes Dream Theater. As the band walks out onto the stage the feverish crowd goes wild and begins jockeying for position close to the stage. As the band breaks into the first song the crowd erupts and a giant mosh pit is created. A mass of sweaty, shouting metalheads begin colliding into one another and rising above the frenzy is the powerful sound of Dream Theater uniting everyone in the fury. The powerhouse metal band plows through song after song as the crowd just gets more energized. All night there is a surge of energy that you have never seen at a concert before. After seeing one of the best metal bands on the planet you cannot wait until they come back to your city on their next tour. Their last three albums have had the highest debuts yet on the charts with 2009's Black Clouds & Silver Linings debuting at number 6, 2011's A Dramatic Turn of Events debuting at number 8, and 2013's Dream Theater debuting at number 11.


Trivia

In fall of 2013 Loudwire held a March Metal Contest in which its readers were given the chance to vote for the best metal album in the world, with the competition playing out in a bracket style similar to the NCAA's March Madness tournament. Dream Theater's Images and Words took home the top prize ahead of such other legendary acts as Metallica, Megadeth, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Guns N Roses and others.
