Dream Theater Unveils ‘The Looking Glass’ [Video]
Dream Theater have unleashed ’The Looking Glass’ as the latest video off their 2013 self-titled album. The video (watch above) is mostly a performance clip that also features a woman holding a crystal ball, inside which you can see the band playing.
The progressive metal heroes are currently in Europe on tour. In March, the band will take North America by storm. Guitarist John Petrucci discussed the tour with Loudwire, saying, ”We’re calling it “An Evening with Dream Theater” and it will be two full sets with an intermission. Just a ton of music. Our goal is to make it the best Dream Theater live experience ever and when you enter the venue, our plan is to just take you into our world. In addition to the music, there will be a complex video and lighting component that really will create this kind of parallel universe where we live.”
Petrucci continues, “There will be many musical surprises. The goal is always to raise the bar from the previous tour but this time I think were really going little bit crazy. I have to add to that it’s been extra exciting for our drummer Mike Mangini because there’s plenty of music in our back catalog that he’s never played before so for him a lot of this really is going to be a new experience. But I promise you this will be unlike any other Dream Theater show you’ve ever seen or experienced and it’s going to be very special.”
The North American leg of the tour begins March 20 in Toronto. After a couple of shows in the Great White North, there are almost a month of U.S. concerts before the tour wraps up in Mexico.
