It’s hard to believe it has been 30 years since I first I (along with most of the rest of the world) was introduced to a band that would come to define what progressive metal is; Dream Theater. That band (who will be in town at Stifel Theatre for a Covid rescheduled show Tuesday, February 15 at 8:00 pm) redefined progressive metal so much that they are widely considered to easily slot into the top three progressive metal bands of all time.

Now, saying anything is the “Top” or “Best” is purely conjecture, but it is hard to deny the impact this band has had on the genre. Once Images and Words came out in 1992, led by the epic “Pull Me Under”, captured many a musicians gaze and never let go. Releasing tracks that are so heavy they make your eyes bleed to melodic ballads that make your eyes water with tears from the imagery and presentation, and powerful clean vocals with lyrics that deal with things like stem cell research to reincarnation, from murder suicide to astronomy.

Now, thirty years after that release the band is about to embark upon another North American tour in support of their most recent, and 15th, studio album, A View from the Top of the World, which dropped October of 2021.

Throughout their long and illustrious career, the band has always been known for their live shows, and how articulately perfect they reproduce the recorded songs in a live setting, they are true perfectionists.

In other words: music mastery.

Since this was originally scheduled for December, ALL tickets will be honored from that show.
