DREAM THEATER guitarist John Petrucci announces more solo tour dates with Mike Portnoy on drums 

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“.

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 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.
