DREAM THEATER to Open for IRON MAIDEN this Summer

Prog rock/metal icons DREAM THEATER will spend their summer supporting IRON MAIDEN on the band’s month-long U.S./Canada tour. The tour launches on June 9 and runs through July 20, and includes a stop at the storied Madison Square Garden in NYC, marking the first time in a lengthy and respected career that DREAM THEATER will have played the world’s most famous arena.

Of touring with IRON MAIDEN in North America, drummer Mike Portnoy said, “It is a bit of a dream come true for us. After 25 years together, at this stage in our career, there’s honestly only three bands DREAM THEATER would consider opening for and MAIDEN is one of them. It is an absolute honor. Through the years, we’ve done many one-off shows with MAIDEN and they’ve almost all been overseas. It is very exciting to finally be doing a full tour with them and on our side of the pond, no less. These are gonna be amazing shows that the fans won’t want to miss. Up the f***ing irons!”

DREAM THEATER’s Black Clouds & Silver Linings was released in 2009 and debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Sales chart.
