Progressive metal overlords Dream Theater will play two very special headline UK shows in February 2020.
The concerts at London Eventim Apollo on Friday 21st February and Glasgow SEC Armadillo on Sunday 23rd February are the culmination of an epic 28-date European tour that visits 16 separate countries.
Each night Dream Theater will play a sprawling three-hour set that celebrates their latest studio album ‘Distances Over Time’ and the 20th anniversary of their critically-lauded 1999 opus ‘Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory’.
Tickets to Glasgow are on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 9am on Friday 13th September and London Eventim Apollo follows at 10am on Monday 16th September.
Commenting on ‘The Distance Over Time Tour - Celebrating 20 Years Of Scenes From A Memory’, guitarist John Petrucci says: "The response to Distance Over Time has been overwhelmingly positive and we are really looking forward to playing some of the songs from that album live for our European audiences in an ‘Evening With’ setting along with our full headlining show production.
“For those of you who were there when we premiered Scenes From A Memory live in Europe 20 years ago, this will not only be a trip down memory lane but also the chance to see it presented in a completely new light and the way it was always intended to be. Our updated presentation has all-new animated video content depicting the characters and storyline through the entire show as they’ve never been ‘scene’ before!
“For those of our fans who were either not born yet, too young, or had not yet been introduced to DT 20 years ago, this will be a fresh opportunity to experience Scenes live for the first time in its entirety. We can’t wait to perform for all of you!"
