Dream Theater have a spot in my heart as one of my favorite progressive metal bands. Though I was really upset drummer Mike Portnoy left, their album ‘A Dramatic Turn Of Events’ was actually decent, returning to their early 90’s style with more keyboards and textures. But I really want their new album to be something special. I’ve seen them live twice, and most recently on their US tour with Trivium from 2011, so when I heard they were shooting a concert DVD, I was stoked because I love those sorts of things. Check the trailer below. Honestly, it looks really sweet, and I can’t wait to pick it up. Details after the jump:
“Live At Luna Park, a live concert captured on 2DVD, Blu-ray, Digital Video, 2DVD/3CD, Blu-ray/3CD, and a deluxe edition (2DVD/Blu-ray/3CD), will drop in May 2013. To whet the appetite of their fans, Dream Theater have released this trailer.
Live At Luna Park was filmed over two nights in South America — home to one of Dream Theater’s most ardent fanbases. The DVD was filmed after a 15-month world tour, hitting 35 countries.
“This is without a doubt the closest a viewer at home will come to experiencing a live Dream Theater concert,” states guitarist and founding member John Petrucci. “Between the hi-def and 3D video, the huge audio mix and the documentary style behind the scenes footage, you are truly transported to the arena and completely immersed in the entire live experience.”
“We have the greatest fans on the planet and the people of Argentina are no exception!” adds Petrucci. “The energy and vibe at Luna Park was truly electric and contagious. The perfect synergy between band and audience. We are immensely proud of this DVD and incredibly excited to share it with everyone!””
