Two-time GRAMMY-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans Dream Theater have released the next video from their upcoming ninth career live album “Distant Memories – Live In London”. The video is taken from the second set of the show where James LaBrie, John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess, John Myung and Mike Mangini celebrate the band’s seminal concept album “Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory”. The live version of “Fatal Tragedy” features Dream Theater showcasing the expert musicianship – plainly evident in the studio release from two decades past – that fans have come to expect from their live shows. Watch it below.

“Performing ‘Scenes from a Memory’ live in its entirety 20 years after its initial release was a ton of fun for all of us. ‘Fatal Tragedy’ is one of the darker, heavier and more exciting songs on ‘Scenes’ and always gets an amazing response from our audience. It’s an important track because lyrically it helps to establish the story’s plot details while musically it showcases some of our favorite instrumental moments on the album,” explains John Petrucci

“Distant Memories – Live In London” brings together selections from 2019’s “Distance Over Time”, in concert with the full and complete performance of 1999’s “Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory”, in what was one of the most anticipated and historic evenings in Dream Theater history, ultimately becoming this instant classic.

The entirety of the band’s “Distance Over Time Tour: Celebrating 20 Years of Scenes From a Memory” is a testament to their fans’ long-term appreciation and love for the band as the members themselves recount, expressing that the “tour has been really incredible for all of us in so many ways. We have been supporting our latest work which has been embraced by Dream Theater fans all around the world in a way that we are incredibly grateful for, and the two nights we recorded and filmed in London were definitely amongst the best shows of the tour.” says guitarist John Petrucci.

Petrucci continues, “Whether you had a chance to see this tour in person and want to relive what was hopefully an awesome concert experience, or are enjoying the performance on video for the first time, Distant Memories very accurately and very beautifully captures the energy and excitement we all felt together at the Apollo this past February.” He progresses, highlighting the “incredible touring and production crew, along with our amazing film crew, all of whom have really delivered the goods and made it possible for us to be presented in our best light. We are beyond proud to offer this release with brilliant sound, visuals and artistic presentation, thanks to our talented mix engineer, director, visual artist and art director who we all value beyond words.”
