Il prossimo mese di gennaio i Dream Theater sbarcheranno in Europa con il loro Distance Over Time Tour festeggiando peraltro i 20 anni dall'uscita dell'iconico "Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory". A febbraio due tappe in Italia. Ora la band statunitense pubblica il video di "At Wit’s End" tratto da"Distance Over Time" (versione CD/Blu-Ray)
The initial leg of this very tour garnered plenty of critical commendation and audience acclaim due in large part to its diverse setlist of fan favourites spanning the quintet’s venerable 30-plus year career. Featuring tracks from DREAM THEATER’S latest release, "Distance Over Time" (InsideOutMusic /Sony Music), and selections from their comprehensive discography along with a nightly celebration marking the 20th Anniversary of their seminal concept album "Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory", the band has established a precedent on this tour of a nightly not-to-be-missed standout performance. DREAM THEATER will continue that trend on the European tour, creating an evening of over 2 hours and 45 minutes of iconic DREAM THEATER at their masterful best, making this a milestone concert event that long-time fans and newcomers alike will remember for years to come.
DREAM THEATER guitarist John Petrucci previously commented, "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!"
On their 14th full-length and first release for InsideOutMusic / Sony Music, "Distance Over Time", the band recharge the brotherhood that has kept them creating music together for over 30 years. It’s DREAM THEATER at their most dynamic, direct, and definitive. After landing the #1 spot on the iTunes Top Album Chart the day it was released, the LP has gone on to be an instant classic among fans and critics alike. The album generated a #1 chart position in Germany, debuted at #12 in the UK album chart, and in the USA entered at #5 in the Top Current Album Chart as well as #24 on the Billboard 200. The band also garnered over 10 million total streams for Distance Over Time through release week, a career high for the band in the streaming age. The latest addition to Dream Theater’s impressive catalogue is available now, in various configurations including a new deluxe version featuring a Blu-Ray disc containing official animation videos for every song on the album, at: https://dream-theater.lnk.to/DistanceOverTime
