As the masterful quintet continue on The Final Frontier Tour supporting Iron Maiden this summer, Dream Theater will also be playing a few headlining shows during the tour's off-dates.

Warns the band on their site, "Please note these will not be traditional DT shows in terms of production...as it is in the midst of the Maiden tour, we are not carrying our usual lighting and video show...so instead these will be small intimate club shows... just like the good(?) 'ol days! So come sweat it out with us...."
