Over the Edge Productions to Produce Dream Theater’s Concert DVD in South America.
New York. 10 August, 2012- Legendary progressive rock band, Dream Theater, selects Over the Edge Productions to produce their upcoming concert event and Mike Leonard to be the director.
Dream Theater announces they will be filming a concert DVD for their latest world tour in support of “A Dramatic Turn of Events,” on August 19th and 20th at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
“We are thrilled to be working with Dream Theater again, especially on such a monumental project. Dream Theater is a legend in the music world, and they’re all really amazing guys,” says Leonard, founder of Over the Edge Productions (OTE), a New York-based production company specializing in entertainment television.
Last year, OTE produced a documentary for Dream Theater entitled The Spirit Carries On, which was released on DVD with their album and chronicles the journey they took to find their new drummer, Mike Mangini.
The Concert DVD will showcase the best of this two-night live event filmed with up to 10 cameras and ultimately released on BluRay disc. Bonus features will also include documentary segments with the band as a follow up to The Spirit Carries On movie.
“We have had such an incredible time performing all across the globe over the past year and it has been an amazing and event filled tour. We are really excited about ending things up in South America and the two-night concert and DVD shoot in Argentina is sure to be an amazing evening! Better yet is to be working with Mike Leonard and everyone at [Over the Edge Productions] once again. Our experience with Mike and crew on “The Spirit Carries On” documentary was nothing short of spectacular and we know that they will deliver our best work to date. Between the show, documentary and interview footage, we are confident that Mike will not only deliver an epic concert video, but that he will capture the real essence of [Dream Theater’s] South American experience to be enjoyed by our fans all around the world,” says John Petrucci.
The Dream Theater concert event will take place in Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The former amusement park, located in the heart of Buenos Aires near the district of Puerto Madero, has been known to host countless musical performances and sporting events for over the past eighty years. The historic venue is representative of the immense culture found within the country of Argentina.
Rolling Stone conducted a readers' poll recently to determine the 10 greatest prog rock albums of all time, and Dream Theater fans came out in force to vote for the band. Indeed, writer Andy Greene says in the intro to the poll, "We received thousands of votes, partially fueled by the fact that one band encouraged fans to vote by posting the link on their homepage. We won't name names, so let's just call them D. Theater. No, that's too obvious. Let's go with Dream T." Check it out now to see which of the band's albums made the list.
All of us in Dream Theater are so grateful to our fans for their incredible support in voting our album Metropolis PT. 2 Scenes From A Memory as the number 1 album in Rolling Stone's poll for "Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums of All Time." The kind of support we have around the world is absolutely amazing and inspires us to keep making the best music that we possibly can for all of you!
