DREAM THEATER Keyboardist Talks About His 'Live At My Steinway' Concert Event (Video)

Keyboardist Jordan Rudess of progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER will hold a live Internet concert event, "Live At My Steinway", on Sunday, June 3 at 4:00 p.m. EST at Stageit.com.

A four-minute video interview with AOL's Noisecreep in which Rudess talks about the upcoming performance can be seen below.

"I like how Stageit.com is making it possible for artists to perform unique online concerts," says Rudess. "Their model is very appealing to me so I think I'd try it out with a special piano-based performance."

DREAM THEATER has announced a second North American leg of a world tour in support of its acclaimed and globally successful album "A Dramatic Turn Of Events" (Roadrunner). The progressive hard rock icons, who've sold in excess of 10 million records and DVDs worldwide, will launch their summer dates June 15 in Rochester, New York and wrap July 21 in Chester, Pennsylvania. The tour includes stops at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles and the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey plus a two-night engagement at the Paramount Theater on Long Island, New York.

Joining DREAM THEATER, starting June 16 in Columbus, Ohio and for the rest of the tour, is special guest CRIMSON PROJEKCT featuring Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Markus Reuter, Julie Slick and Tobias Ralph. They'll be performing the songs of progressive rock legends KING CRIMSON.
