Dream Theater announce North American tour

Dream Theater’s new album, “A Dramatic Turn Of Events,” hits stores September 13, and the band will hit the road two weeks later to bring the new music to fans.

DT have announced the first series of dates for a fall 2011 North American tour with label mates Trivium; things kick off September 24 in San Francisco.

"We are all very pumped about the release of 'A Dramatic Turn of Events' this September as well as the world tour we'll embark upon in support of the album," says guitarist John Petrucci. "Our first leg will bring us throughout North America, where we'll showcase songs from the new album along with tons of fan favorites and a brand new tour production unlike any other that we've done before. We're equally excited to have our friends in Trivium join us as well. It's sure to be an incredible tour. We're looking forward to seeing all of our friends on the road this fall!"

The initial confirmed run of dates is below, with more to be announced imminently.
