"Frontman James LaBrie recently spoke with Space In Your Face radio on CKMS in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario regarding DREAM THEATER's touring plans in support of their latest epic, Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory: "What we want to do in the new year, we want to go out with a huge production and because this is a concept album, we want to play it from beginning to end, the way a concept album should be played, and have it unfold, have imagery, have screens, and everything going on. So I'm kinda hitting our booking agents over the head and saying, 'you know, make it happen', so we'll see. And then we're gonna go basically everywhere in the world and present the album in that way". James also stated his goal is to bring the tour to Massey Hall in Toronto in the new year, the perfect venue for such an anticipated performance.
Darren "The Badger" Redick will be dedicating an hour of his radio show to "Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes From A Memory" on Wednesday, November 3rd, from 10 pm GMT (5 pm EST) on the internet radio station Rock Radio Network.
The show will be interspersed with an interview with James LaBrie, recorded by phone on Friday, October, 22nd. James will also be talking about his Mull Muzzler project.
On Saturday night, October 30th, 1999, Mike Portnoy will be doing three radio appearances in the New York / New Jersey area (all times are approximate and subject to change).

On Tuesday, October 26th, 1999 (the release date of "Scenes From A Memory"), Dream Theater (minus John Petrucci) will be doing an autograph session at Sam Goody in the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, LI. This event will take place between 6 and 8pm. John Petrucci won't be able to be there, since he is giving a guitar clinic in Italy that day.
Later that evening, the band (once again, without John Petrucci) will be doing a "Full Disclosure" live chat on Yahoo!/Sonicnet, to lift the veil of secrecy surrounding the band's new release.
The first single from Dream Theater's upcoming "Scenes From A Memory" CD is the track "HOME". It will be available to US rock radio for impact beginning on Monday October 11th 1999. If you'd like to hear it, call your local station and DEMAND it!!!!
