For nearly three decades of continually redefining the parameters of hard rock, progressive heavy metal and surpassing critical expectations, devoted fans will be in their element as Dream Theater announce their return to the Palais Theatre.
Having last toured here in 2014, Dream Theater have arguably become the prototypical progressive metal band. And, not by coincidence, they are also probably the most successful purveyors of the form.  Dream Theater have a legion of fiercely diehard fans around the world and expect nothing less than a smart, fully immersive, experiential journey through otherworldly soundscapes from each and every live performance.
They have been nominated for a Grammy Award, have sold more than 12 million albums worldwide, earned countless accolades and shared stages with iconic bands Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.  Dream Theater have also just been nominated for this year's Progressive Music Awards for International Band/Artist of the Year.
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."
