For over three decades, Grammy Award-winning guitarist John Petrucci has been known for his work in the groundbreaking and influential progressive metal band DREAM THEATER. Now, John is adding another career milestone to his resume as he is embarking on his first headlining solo tour performing material from his recently released solo album, “Terminal Velocity”, as well as songs from his widely acclaimed debut release, “Suspended Animation”.
Today the world-renowned guitarist have shared the official animated music video for his single “Temple of Circadia” directed by his longtime collaborator Wayne Joyner (Stryper, Devin Townsend, Dream Theater, Progpower USA). Watch the fantastic clip below.
“Terminal Velocity” marked the first time that John and former DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy recorded together since Mike left the band in 2010. Now, John will take his instrumental trio on the road performing live with Portnoy and legendary bassist Dave LaRue in an on-stage reunion that has been 12 years in the making.
The historic tour will run through October and November and promises to be an unforgettable night of live musicianship. The now full itinerary of the run can be found below.
The recently reunited all-female band MEANSTREAK will be the special guest openers for the tour. MEANSTREAK is comprised of guitarists Marlene Portnoy (Mike‘s wife) and Rena Sands (Petrucci‘s wife), vocalist Bettina France, bassist Martens Myung (wife of DREAM THEATER bassist John Myung) and drummer Yael.
