DREAM THEATER Announces North American Leg Of 'Images, Words & Beyond' Tour

Progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER have announced the third and final leg of their "Images, Words & Beyond" tour, which sees the pioneering group celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of its milestone RIAA-gold-certified album "Images And Words". The North American headline dates kick off October 25 at Oakland's Fox Theatre. The trek takes the band throughout the US, including dates at NYC's Beacon Theatre and L.A.'s Wiltern, as well as a stop at the Sony Centre in Toronto.

Like previous legs, the show will be presented as an "Evening With Dream Theater," with no opening act. The tour will feature an unparalleled live set of "Images And Words" in its entirety, along with fan favorites from their deep, widely acclaimed catalog.

Said founding guitarist John Petrucci of the upcoming trek: "We are so psyched to bring our 'Images, Words & Beyond' tour to North America this fall! It's hard to believe that it's already been 25 years since 'Images' was released! We've been having a blast playing those songs each night, and sharing memories and stories from our time in the studio back in 1992. We know that this is such an important album to so many of our fans, both old and new, so we plan on making this a really special night by playing 'Images And Words' in its entirety as well as breaking out some rare material, and a few of our latest tunes, in order to make this landmark evening compete. We hope to see all of you there! Don't miss it."

Pre-sale tickets for select headline shows will be available beginning today, Wednesday, July 26, at 10 a.m. (local time), followed by a public on-sale July 28, with the remainder of the pre-sales launching one week later, August 2, with a public on-sales of August 4.
