Progressive music titans DREAM THEATER have will release their ninth career live album, “Distant Memories – Live In London”, on November 27. Recorded at their sold-out show at the Apollo Theatre in London, the live release documents the band’s popular world tour in support of their latest critically acclaimed studio album “Distance Over Time” and the 20th anniversary of their seminal concept album “Metropolis Part 2 – Scenes From A Memory”.
Fans can check out the live version of “Fatal Tragedy” from “Distant Memories – Live In London” below.
Says guitarist John Petrucci: “Performing ‘Scenes From A Memory’ live in its entirety 20 years after its initial release was a ton of fun for all of us.
“‘Fatal Tragedy’ is one of the darker, heavier and more exciting songs on ‘Scenes’ and always gets an amazing response from our audience. It’s an important track because, lyrically, it helps to establish the story’s plot details while musically it showcases some of our favorite instrumental moments on the album.”
“Distant Memories – Live In London” is the band’s first since 2014’s “Breaking The Fourth Wall”. The new live release will be available in various configurations including digital only, a 3-CD and 2 DVD multibox, a 3-CD and 2 Blu-Ray digipak with slipcase, a limited deluxe 3-CD + 2 Blu-Ray + 2 DVD Artbook and a limited 4-LP and 3-CD box set. The video components will also feature a behind-the-scenes look at the band as they get ready for the shows. All formats of “Distant Memories – Live In London” are now available for pre-order here.
