Legendary rockers Dream Theater are heading to town, with Dubai set to experience arguably its biggest night of rock this year, Time Out Dubai reports.
The classic prog rockers launched their debut album Images, Words & Beyond 25 years ago, and are embarking on a massive tour to celebrate the anniversary. With tracks including Pull Me Under, and Another Day still drawing in sold out crowds a quarter of a century after its first release, combined with a spectacular light and visual show, a big night is in store when the band arrives in town on Friday October 6 at The Dome in Dubai Sports City.
Dream Theater’s visit to Dubai bridges the gap between the band’s tours of Asia and the US – with gigs in Japan, South Korea, Australia, Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore taking place before arriving in Dubai Sports City. The band will be playing nearly 40 gigs this year to celebrate the anniversary of its iconic debut album. Apart from songs that featured on Images, Words & Beyond, expect to hear a range of classics from other albums including 1997’s Falling Into Infinity, 1999’s Metropolis Pt 2, 2005’s Octavarium, 2011’s A Dramatic Turn of Events and last year’s The Astonishing – among others.
It’s the first time the band has come to Dubai, and adds another incredible act to this coming season’s line-up of music. From Dream Theater, to Brit rockers Ocean Colour Scene, to Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Lopez and Gorillaz; the music scene here is exploding into life once the temperatures cool down a little.
