DREAM THEATER Drummer Says Radio City Music Hall Recordings Are Sounding 'Amazing'

DREAM THEATER's very last show of the band's 20th Anniversary Tour 2005/2006 on April 1, 2006 at the Radio City Music Hall was recorded and filmed for an upcoming 20th anniversary DVD and CD release. The band's drummer, Mike Portnoy, has issued the following update regarding the upcoming set:

"I've been in the studio last week and this week with Michael Brauer doing the audio mixes of the [Radio City Music Hall] show and it sounds AMAZING!!!! The mixes are in the can (both stereo and 5.1) and are ready for mastering! Simultaneously, I've been hard at work on the DVD. The footage shot is absolutely BEAUTIFUL (11 Hi-Def cameras!) and I also have plans for some great bonus material as well which is in the works.

"I will be flying to L.A. in a few weeks to put the finishing touches on the video editing and wrapping the whole project by the first or second week of May.

"We are tentatively looking at an end of summer release (August/September) for the 2-DVD/3-CD sets... And yes... I have a name for it...but I have to leave some things unmentioned for now!"

DREAM THEATER's latest album, "Octavarium", came out in June 2005.
