DREAM THEATER, twice Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans, are thrilled to announce their April 2020 Australian leg of their most recent Evening With touring cycle; featuring a celebration of the band’s latest record, Distance Over Time, and their acclaimed milestone achievement, Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory. The Distance Over Time Tour – Celebrating 20 Years Of Scenes From A Memory will see the band perform their full and complete 3-hour set for audiences throughout Europe.
Presented in Australia by MJR Presents, Tickets for the The Distance Over Time Tour – Celebrating 20 Years Of Scenes From A Memory, as well as VIP packages can be found at http://mjrpresents.com or http://dreamtheater.net/tour/ once on sale. The Australian theatre tour dates are Thursday April 23 at Brisbane’s QPAC, Saturday April 25 at Sydney’s ICC, Sunday April 26 at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre and Monday April 27 at Adelaide’s AEC Theatre.
The initial leg of this tour garnered plenty of critical commendation and audience acclaim due in large part to its diverse set list of fan favourites spanning the quintet’s venerable 30-plus year career! Featuring tracks from DREAM THEATER’S latest release, Distance Over Time (InsideOutMusic /Sony Music), and selections from their comprehensive discography along with a nightly celebration marking the 20th Anniversary of their seminal concept album Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory, the band has established a precedent on this tour of a nightly not-to-be- missed standout performance. DREAM THEATER will continue that trend on the European tour, creating an evening of over 2 hours and 45 minutes of iconic DREAM THEATER at their masterful best, making this a milestone concert event that long-time fans and newcomers alike will remember for years to come.
DREAM THEATER guitarist John Petrucci comments, ‘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!
