Dream Theater Announce Summer 2012 North American Tour Dates
Progressive metal masters Dream Theater have just announced the addition of a new leg of North American tour dates set for this summer.
The members of Dream Theater have accumulated a ton of stamps in the passports recently, with trips to Europe and Mexico, and will add even more with their upcoming shows in Japan, China, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. After visiting all of these countries where few metal bands have been able to play in, we're hoping for a 'Flight 666'-like documentary to be made! Can you imagine Dream Theater traveling to all those countries and not filming any of the trip? Us neither.
After the band's Asian adventure concludes in early May, their North American tour dates will begin on June 15 in Rochester, N.Y., and conclude July 21 in Chester, Penn.
Dream Theater's single 'On the Backs of Angels' was recently nominated for the band's first ever Grammy Award in 2012 in the category of Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance. Despite their excitement for the career milestone, Dream Theater lost to the Foo Fighters tune 'White Limo.'
