Dream Theater film live DVD in Buenos Aires

Dream Theater played two shows in Buenos Aires this week and the action was captured for a forthcoming live DVD.

The August 19 and August 20 concerts at Estadio Luna Park were professionally filmed and recorded for the band's next live DVD, to be released sometime next year.

Part of the group’s latest world tour in support of “A Dramatic Turn of Events,” the concerts were filmed by Over the Edge Productions with Mike Leonard in the director's chair.

Last year, OTE produced a documentary for Dream Theater entitled “The Spirit Carries On,” which was released on DVD with their album and chronicles the journey they took to find their new drummer, Mike Mangini.

The concert DVD will showcase the best of the two-night live event filmed with up to 10 cameras and ultimately released on BluRay disc. Bonus features will also include documentary segments with the band as a follow up to “The Spirit Carries On” movie.

“We have had such an incredible time performing all across the globe over the past year and it has been an amazing and event filled tour,” says John Petrucci. “We are really excited about ending things up in South America and the two-night concert and DVD shoot in Argentina is sure to be an amazing evening! Better yet is to be working with Mike Leonard and everyone at [Over the Edge Productions] once again. Our experience with Mike and crew on “The Spirit Carries On” documentary was nothing short of spectacular and we know that they will deliver our best work to date. Between the show, documentary and interview footage, we are confident that Mike will not only deliver an epic concert video, but that he will capture the real essence of [Dream Theater’s] South American experience to be enjoyed by our fans all around the world.”
