Prog metal mayhem coming our way this October...
Tour Dates: 
29/10/2014 - 30/10/2014

If there is one name that is synonymous with modern progressive metal, it would undeniably be Dream Theater.

The supreme lords of the genre own their style, best described as mixing the progressive tendencies of bands such as Pink Floyd, Rush and Yes with the metal edge of Metallica and Iron Maiden. With a career spanning close to 30 years, Dream Theater have recorded over 10 million album sales around the world to a fanatical diehard fanbase. 

It has been 5 years since Dream Theater’s last visit in 2009 and Australian fans have been chomping at the bit for a return tour from the mesmerising kings of prog metal.

Metropolis Touring and Tombowler are therefore thrilled to announce Dream Theater will be finally returning to Australia for two very special, exclusive and intimate performances in Sydney and Melbourne this October!

Expressive, extraordinary and genre-defining, Dream Theater’s music is as timeless as their dozen-album strong discography would suggest, while their latest album, the self-titled Dream Theater sees the band ever advancing toward new horizons.  This latest record is the first featuring the full integration into the band of new drummer Mike Mangini, making their current lineup something to behold. 

"Put simply, Dream Theater is a staggeringly good album, a colossal melding of all the bits you like about the band with all the flab and grandiosity (almost) eradicated in favour of simply producing the most thrilling sixty eight minutes and one second of music it’s possible for a small group of human musicians to produce". - Scott Adams, Metal as Fuck

The mountain of awards and accolades from publications such as Guitar World, Revolver, Metal Hammer, Rolling Stone, Spin, Classic Rock and Metal as Fuck (Dream Theater was placed at #10 in our top 100 albums of 2013 poll)as well as Grammy nominations rightly bestowed upon the band over the course of their storied career shouldn’t overshadow the most important thing Dream Theater has always offered: engaging, deeply resonant and undeniably catchy songs; Pull Me Under, Caught In A Web, Forsaken, Lie, Take The Time, On The Backs Of Angels, Trail Of Tears, As I Am, Burning My Soul and The Enemy Inside are but just a few songs that have left fans in awe as they witness Dream Theater’s fingers fly; stirring up their own weather system of atmospheric and hauntingly hypnotic prog prowess.

As flawless as their albums are, it is in the live setting where Dream Theater truly shine - their music comes alive, showcasing a gargantuan sound (and having John Petrucci’s wall of guitar blasting you in the face is something that has to be experienced to be believed!)

Dream Theater’s proficiency and technical wizardry is at full flight with the near three hour ‘An Evening With Dream Theatre’ performance loaded with nothing but the best from Dream Theater! The tour has been nominated for a ‘best live event’ award at this year’s Progressive Music Awards, demonstrating it is certainly one of the finest Prog shows currently touring the world.  Ensure you are one of the lucky ones along for the ride with Dream Theater on their two exclusive Australian performances in October!
