Dream Theater Fans Stun New Drummer

(Gibson) Dream Theater's new drummer, Mike Mangini, has responded positively to his first taste of the rabid fans who've been coming to see the band during their current European tour.

In an update on his Facebook page, Mangini writes: "I'm stunned at the crowds on this tour. I really am having so much fun that I can't wait to get back on stage. One more show: Budapest. As the rest of shows were too, the Athens crowd just rocked the Earth all the way to Africa tonight. EVERY crowd has simply gotten the band's message loud and clear and I'm so happy to be a part of all this joy."

Dream Theater wrap up their current tour of Europe today (Aug. 4), at the Fezen Festival in Hungary. The band's much-anticipated new album, A Dramatic Turn of Events, will be released September 13 on Roadrunner Records. Their forthcoming tour of North America kicks off September 24 in San Francisco. more on this story
