Dream Theater have announced dates for a North American headline trek deemed the “Along For The Ride” tour.  The coast to coast run will pick up on March 20 in Toronto, ON, following the band’s European tour, and then continue through the end of April, where it will eventually wrap up in Guadalajara, MX. Presale tickets will be available starting at 10:00 AM ET on Wednesday, December 18. For up-to-the-minute news and ticket information, please visit http://www.dreamtheater.net/tour.

Dream Theater recently earned their second Grammy nomination, this time for “Best Metal Performance” for their single “The Enemy Inside” from their current self-titled worldwide smash album. Dream Theater made a spectacular debut this past fall, topping Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart, while simultaneously entering at #7 on the overall Billboard 200. This marked the group’s third consecutive top 10 debut, alongside top 5 chart debuts in Japan, Germany, Italy, Canada, Argentina, Switzerland, Holland, and Finland, as well as top 10 debuts in Denmark, Austria, and Norway, with career high debuts in the United Kingdom and Australia.

Dream Theater, which was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York, with founding guitarist John Petrucci producing and studio luminary Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush) engineering and mixing, marks a brilliant new chapter for the always adventurous group. Rolling Stone touted the collection as “…the birth of a new era in the band’s career,” while Loudwire picked Dream Theater as one of the 10 Best Metal Albums of 2013 and Noisecreep selected the record as one of the 10 Best Vinyl Releases of 2013.
