Dream Theater is planning a world tour, on which they will play selections from its new album, A Dramatic Turn of Events, as well as classics, staples, and fan favorites. Labelmates Trivium will appear on many dates, supporting their new album, In Waves.
“We are all very pumped about the release of A Dramatic Turn of Events, as well as the tour,” said Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci. “Our first leg will bring us throughout North America where we’ll showcase songs from the new album along with tons of fan favorites and a brand new tour production unlike any other that we’ve done before.”
In addition to the standard CD release, a special edition CD/DVD set will include The Spirit Carries On – a 60-minute movie documenting the band’s drummer auditions; a double LP Set in gatefold jacket; and a Limited Deluxe Collector’s Edition Box Set. The A Dramatic Turn of Events Deluxe Collector’s Edition Box Set includes the A Dramatic Turn of Events album; instrumentals of the entire album; the DVD of The Spirit Carries On; a double-LP Set of A Dramatic Turn of Events (180-Gram Vinyl in Gatefold Jacket); Dream Theater branded custom turntable slipmat; and a litho print of album. Also, 50 lucky winners will find a Dream Theater ‘Ticket For Life,’ which is randomly inserted into packaging. All the content will be housed in a custom box and those who purchase will receive a digital download of the album the day prior to release.
