The undisputed heavyweight champions of Prog Metal are celebrating 25 years of unequalled mastery of their craft.
"Dream Theater are MAJESTIC... With plenty of heart, aggression and unbridled joy to hand, these lords of progressive metal ensured all who sat before them left with many images and words to share of the experience. (this) is all about enjoying, appreciating and exalting in a band whose musicians are at the precipice in ability... A veritable tour de force!"  5/5 Lee Carter, , April 2017.
At a time when bands appear and disappear as quickly as twitter hashtags, it is a testament to Dream Theater to have created such a legacy which enables them to tour the world to sold out crowds for over two decades. 

Being infrequent visitors to Australia, this is a rare chance for fans to experience a mouth watering and career defining set list that spans 25 years in well over 2.5 hours; with a production to match the grandeur of the songs and the splendour of the talent delivering them.

Dream Theater are John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboard) and Mike Mangini (drums). 

"For just under 30 years Dream Theater have basically been the hallmark of knowing how to play your instrument properly. And piss all over everyone else whilst you’re doing it."
Metal Rules

"Whenever a band of the magnitude of Dream Theater comes to town, the excitement is palpable... with fans itching to share in an experience that only takes place once every few years."

"Unbelievable live shows and a rabid fan base worldwide. Dream Theater continue to be at the top of their game."
