Dream Theater have invited students from the esteemed Berklee College of Music to join them for a one-of-a-kind show on the band’s upcoming “Along For The Ride” North American tour, when they visit the Boston Opera House on Tuesday, March 25. Tickets for this event start at $35 and are available here.
Dream Theater was founded in 1985 when three of its founding members—guitarist John Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and former drummer Mike Portnoy—attended the Berklee College of Music. Also adding to the significance of this collaboration: drummer Mike Mangini, who joined the band in 2010, is a former Berklee faculty member. This special homecoming will be captured and recorded for a later release. Dream Theater will be joined by special guest ensembles the Berklee World Strings and the Berklee Concert Choir for the second half of the set. The World Strings are an international group of creative improvisers who play with rhythmic qualities seldom heard from string instruments. The Concert Choir stretches its repertoire from traditional and contemporary music through a wide range of genres. The ensembles will layer distinct dramatic elements to Dream Theater's production.
Dream Theater's self-titled 12th studio album is available everywhere now—grab a copy from the Roadrunner webstore!
