Grammy-nominated progressive metal titans released the "Breaking The Fourth Wall: Live From The Boston Opera House", a live recording of the band’s one-of-a-kind performance from the Boston Opera House on March 25, 2014. Produced by the band’s own John Petrucci and mixed and mastered by Richard Chycki, "Breaking The Fourth Wall: Live From The Boston Opera House" is over 2 hours in length, capturing the special evening, which featured guest performances from The Berklee College of Music Orchestra and Choir.
Dream Theater’s John Petrucci commented on the special event saying, “In many ways, this was a huge homecoming for the band given the history of Dream Theater’s origins and ties with Berklee. With John and I both being alumni and Mike having been a professor at the college for 10 years, we saw the opportunity to perform together with the students of Berklee as a tremendous thrill and honor. We are extremely grateful for everyone's hard work in making this special event a reality and to all who participated.
Dream Theater's 2013 self-titled opus is a masterpiece of ambition, adventure and redefined purpose. Dream Theater heralds an exceptionally energized and profoundly dynamic emergent chapter for the melodic, progressive and consistently heavy masters of hard rock invention. Dream Theater is a name synonymous with the penultimate synthesis of studied expertise and relentless creative passion. It is an album that at once recalls the brilliant hallmarks that have made the band icons to fellow musicians and hard rock fans alike, while simultaneously a bold declaration of a future yet to come.
Live performance and documentary about the legendary band, following their rise to fame and fortune, and the history of their unconventional music.
