Dream Theater Announce First Leg Of Upcoming Tour

Dream Theater have announced the dates for the first leg of their upcoming European tour and also announced that they plan to tour North America next spring.

The European tour will be kicking off on January 15th in Porto, Portugal and will feature shows in 30 cities in 16 countries across Europe before concluding on February 24th in Helsinki, Finland.

The band will be launching the tour in support of their forthcoming self-titled album which will be released on September 24th and was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York and produced by John Petrucci and mixed and engineered by Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush).

"I see every new album as an opportunity to start over," says Petrucci. "To either build or improve upon a direction that has been evolving over time or to completely break new ground.

"This is the first self-titled album of our career and there is nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We've fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic. We're incredibly excited about Dream Theater and can't wait for everyone to hear it."

The band will soon be announcing tour dates for their North American trek in support of the album. That tour is expected to kick off in March of next year.
