Dream Theater Announce Tour Da

Prog metal heavyweights Dream Theater have finalized most of the dates for their upcoming An Evening With Dream Theater — World Tourbulence 2002 U.S. tour, which will kick off on March 7th in Phoenix. According to the group's official web site, there will be no support act during the US tour, which is being launched to support the band’s album Six Degrees of Inner Turbulance, due out on January 29th. The band added a second New York City show, to take place at the Beacon Theater on March 28th, as a result of the overwhelming demand for tickets for the group's March 27th performance. Tickets for the newly-added gig will go on sale today, January 12th. Drummer Mike Portnoy recently confirmed that the second nights in both Chicago and NYC will consist of completely different sets from the first nights' set lists.

Portnoy also recently commented on the fact that there are no west coast or Texas-area scheduled on this trek: “I am disappointed to announce that we were unable to secure shows in many areas we'd love be playing in... Most Notably: The South (Texas, Florida, Atlanta, New Orleans), The Northwest (Seattle, Portland) and any additional Canadian dates (Montreal, Quebec City). We are as disappointed as any of you are (really!) but the unfortunate reality is the promoters in these particular areas are not making it possible financially for us to put on a Dream Theater show without losing money ourselves. Luckily, the rest of the US has promoters that realize the band's drawing power and have made the shows possible, but their are still areas of North America that judge a band's popularity on radio or MTV play.... We apologize to our great fans in these areas of America and we hope we can make it through on a later leg....”

Here are the dates so far:

3/7/02 Phoenix, AZ, Web Theater
3/8/02 Los Angeles, CA, Wiltern Theater
3/9/02 San Francisco, CA, Warfield Theater
3/11/02 Denver, CO, Paramount Theater
