DREAM THEATER Announces Early 2020 European Headlining Tour
Progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER have announced a European headlining tour in early 2020. The trek, which will kick off in Amsterdam on January 11 and wrap in Glasgow on February 23, will see the band celebrating the 20th anniversary of its “Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory” album, as well performing material from its latest LP, “Distance Over Time”.

The band states: “Europe! 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!

“For those of our fans who were either not born yet, too young, or had not yet been introduced to DT 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!”

Tickets will go on general sale from 10 a.m. this coming Friday (September 13).

Petrucci told Rolling Stone that “Metropolis Pt. 2” was significant for him because “it was our first album with [keyboardist] Jordan [Rudess], so that was important. And it was the first album where we didn’t use an outside producer. I remember back then having a conversation with Mike [original DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy] where we said, ‘Let’s not do that anymore. Let’s produce ourselves.’ And we basically have ever since. So in that respect, ‘Scenes From A Memory’ might have actually been a record that was a reaction to the previous one. And then we also figured that we hadn’t done a concept album yet, and we decided that it was time. It was like, let’s make our ‘Operation: Mindcrime’, our ‘Tommy’, our ‘The Wall’. It was definitely a conscious decision to do something bold and new and different.”

Released this past February, “Distance Over Time” marks DREAM THEATER‘s first album for Sony Music‘s progressive imprint InsideOut Music. The group spent the past 25 years recording under various labels in the Warner Music Group system, most recently Roadrunner Records, which released five albums by the band between 2007 and 2016.
