Today, the band- James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitar and Vocals), John Myung (Bass), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards and Continuum) and Mike Mangini (Drums)--saluted their fans all over the world with this statement:
"Dream Theater continues to be blessed with fans around the world who support our musical explorations, and we want to sincerely thank them for turning out in force to embrace 'A Dramatic Turn of Events.' We have never created music to fit into a trend--it's the adventure we have always chased. And to have discerning fans join us every step of the way is really mind-blowing. We are indebted to them and look forward to seeing everyone on the road in 2011 and 2012."
