Dream Theater Score A Global Hit
This marks the band's second Top 10 album chart debut in a row, as 2009's Black Clouds & Silver Linings also debuted in the Top 10 at the #6 position.
A Dramatic Turn Of Events enters at #1 in Finland, at #2 in Holland, at #3 in Italy, Germany, Japan and Sweden and at #9 in Canada as well as #1 on the Rock Album Charts in the UK.
The band says in a statement: "Dream Theater continues to be blessed with fans around the world who support our musical explorations, and we want to sincerely thank them for turning out in force to embrace A DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS. We have never created music to fit into a trend--it's the adventure we have always chased. And to have discerning fans join us every step of the way is really mind-blowing. We are indebted to them and look forward to seeing everyone on the road in 2011 and 2012."
