Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band formed while the members were in college in 1985 under the name Majesty. They subsequently dropped out of their studies to further concentrate on the band that would ultimately become Dream Theater. The band is well known for the technical proficiency of its instrumentalists, who have won many awards from music instruction magazines. Guitarist john Petrucci is constantly revered for his shredding skills and has had the honor of being named as the third player on the G3 Tour six times, more than any other person who has played the tour. Former drummer Mike Portnoy has won 23 awards from Modern Drummer
magazine and is also the second youngest person to be inducted into the Ruck Drummer Hall of Fame. Their bassist, John Myung was voted the greatest bassist of all time in a poll conducted by MusicRadar in 2010. The band’s highest-selling album is the Gold Images and Words
, which reached number 61 on the Billboard
200 chart. The band’s eleventh studio album, A Dramatic Turn of Events
was released in 2011 and entered the Billboard 200 at number 8. The album’s lead single “On the Backs of Angels” was nominated for a Grammy Award in the “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” category later that year, marking the band’s first ever nomination. Don’t miss Dream Theater June 19 at The LC!
