April 27, 2019 | 8:00 P.M.
Chemistry triggers action. The bonds of disparate elements yield friction, energy, and ultimately incite creation. It happens throughout all of existence—especially in music. The music of Dream Theater relies on the interplay and brotherhood of the musicians as much as it does on the harmony of the instruments. In fact, the chemistry the band unlocked upon forming in 1985 remains central to the music they create today.The progressive metal pioneers—James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitars), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards), John Myung (Bass), and Mike Mangini (Drums)— share a unique bond with one of the most passionate fan bases around the globe as evidenced by their two GRAMMY® Award nominations and 15 million records sold worldwide.
Among numerous accolades,
1992’s Images & Words received a gold certification and landed on Rolling
Stone’s coveted “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All-Time.” Meanwhile, Guitar World
placed Awake at #1 on “Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994.” Excerpts
of 1996’s A Change of Seasons notably soundtracked NBC’s coverage of Downhill
Skiing at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Fans voted the 1999 Metropolis Pt. 2:
Scenes from a Memory the “Number One All-Time Progressive Rock Album” in a 2012
Rolling Stone poll. Not to mention, it ranked as the “15th Greatest
