DREAM THEATER is coming to Australia in September. Come to the MELBOURNE GUITAR SHOW for a chance to win a meet and greet, double concert pass to Dream Theater’s Melbourne Show on September 20th at the Palais Theatre.

For nearly three decades of continually redefining the parameters of hard rock, progressive heavy metal and surpassing critical expectations, devoted fans will be in their element as Dream Theater announce their two only Australian shows. As guitarist John Petrucci told Australian Musician’s Greg Phillips back in January at the NAMM Show, “Dream Theater is embarking on an anniversary¬† tour for the album Images and Words, which came out 25 years ago.” When asked if Australia would be part of the tour he said, ” I hope so‚Ķ we haven’t been to Australia in a while.” He suggested if it did happen it would be around September 2017 and as it turns out, he was spot on!

Having last toured here in 2014, Dream Theater have arguably become the prototypical progressive metal band. And, not by coincidence, they are also probably the most successful purveyors of the form. Dream Theater have a legion of fiercely diehard fans around the world and expect nothing less than a smart, fully immersive, experiential journey through otherworldly soundscapes from each and every live performance.
They have been nominated for a Grammy Award, have sold more than 12 million albums worldwide, earned countless accolades and shared stages with iconic bands Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Dream Theater have also just been nominated for this year’s Progressive Music Awards for International Band/Artist of the Year.

By attending the Melbourne Guitar Show August 5 &6 at Caulfield Racecourse, you can enter a draw to not only win a double pass to experience the Dream Theater Melbourne concert but you also get to meet the band! A runner up prize of double pass without the meet and greet is on offer too. Simply pick up a Dream Theater flyer/entry form from the show entrance and drop it into the entry box inside on ground level.

The John Petrucci Music Man Majesty model guitars will be available on the CMC Music stand (ground level) at the guitar show too. Check those out while you’re at it.

Dream Theater are John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboard), and Mike Mangini (drums)
