    DREAM THEATER
    ANNOUNCES SOUTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES

    IN SUPPORT OF THEIR GLOBALLY SUCCESSFUL ALBUM
    ‘A DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS’

    DREAM THEATER have announced they will extend their world tour by continuing on to South America after the second leg of North American dates wrap in Chester, PA on July 21. The South American run, in support of their Grammy-nominated and globally successful album A DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS (Roadrunner) will launch in Guatemala City, Guatemala on August 8 and will include stops in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Columbia, Argentina, Chile and Brazil.

    The tour will conclude September 1 at the Ulysses Guimaraes in Brasilia, Brazil, almost a full year after the progressive hard rock icons first went on the road in support of the new album. It will also give the band--James LaBrie (Vocals), John Myung (Bass), John Petrucci (Guitar and Vocals), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards and Continuum) and Mike Mangini (Drums)--a special chance to play Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica for the first time in their career.

    Tickets, Meet & Greet and VIP packages are available now for the North American tour which launches June 15 in Rochester, NY. Please visit http://vipnation.com for details.

    Here are some critical soundbites about DREAM THEATER’s live show:

    “...the much-pedigreed and chops-a-plenty-packing quintet powered into their opening
    number, Bridges In The Sky, bringing the super-charged, adoring crowd to its feet,
    where they stayed during the entire 15-song set.... Outcry, another standout track from
    the band's new album, A Dramatic Turn Of Events, shook the walls with volcanic force.
    Complex unison lines and intricate counterpoint runs – the guys crunched right through
    them. But this was no clinic, it was more like a party-hearty pile-on – pushing, pulling
    and giving as good as you get and then some... it was during Breaking All Illusions that
    Dream Theater set the bar for all future shows. A 12-minute classic rock meets prog tour
    de force, Messrs Myung, Rudess and Mangini handled its many varied turnarounds with
    supreme aplomb. John Petrucci's bluesy solo summoned ghosts, and by the time he and
    Myung locked horns the visions were real.”

    -- Joe Bosso, MUSICRADAR.COM. October 17, 2012 (Philadelphia)

    “[Frontman James LaBrie] commanded the stage with the crowd in the palm of his
    hands...One of the highlights of the night was when new stickman Mike Mangini gave
    fans a thunderous drum solo as he sat behind a monstrous kit. His mind blowing solo
    had fans wondering exactly how many arms he really has.”

    -- Liz Ramanand, LOUDWIRE.COM, October 13, 2011 (New York City)

    “I could go on and on about all the personal details the band seemed to give its fans
    through the live show, but the way they could play these complicated rhythms and still
    smile, joke with each other, and connect to the crowd simply reaffirmed why Dream
    Theater is one of my favorite and most respected bands.”
