Prog metal behemoths Dream Theater have confirmed the final leg of their ‘Images, Words & Beyond 25th Anniversary Tour,’ which sees the band performing their classic 1992 album, Images and Words, in its entirety, along with fan-favorite songs from the group’s entire catalog.
Here’s more on the North American trek via Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci:
We are so psyched to bring our Images, Words & Beyond tour to North America this Fall! It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 25 years since Images was released! We’ve been having a blast playing those songs each night, and sharing memories and stories from our time in the studio back in 1992. We know that this is such an important album to so many of our fans, both old and new, so we plan on making this a really special night by playing I&W in its entirety as well as breaking out some rare material, and a few of our latest tunes, in order to make this landmark evening compete. We hope to see all of you there! Don’t miss it.
