BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE) ARRIVES SEPTEMBER 30TH,
PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW


AUGUST 21, 2014 - DREAM THEATER--Grammy-nominated progressive metal titans--have announced the release of BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE), a live Blu-Ray / DVD set 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, filmed and directed by Pierre and François Lamoureux, 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. BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE) arrives September 30TH.
The collection will be available in multiple configurations including Blu-Ray, a 2 DVD set, and a webstore deluxe exclusive Blu-Ray/3 CD set with poster, all currently available for pre-order via the Roadrunner Records webstore. Furthermore, Dream Theater have premiered a video of “The Looking Glass” (LIVE) taken from BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE) which can be streamed on the band’s official YouTube Channel. All pre-orders for the webstore exclusive will receive an instant download “The Looking Glass” (LIVE).

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.” He continued, “All of the Berklee College instrumentalists and vocalists did an outstanding job that night and it was awesome to have one of its students, Eren Başbuğ orchestrate and conduct them live at the Opera House after having been a part of our latest studio release in the same capacity. Dream Theater has always had a great connection to the city of Boston and we knew that against the backdrop of the beautiful Opera House, this would end up being a historic stop on our 'Along For The Ride' world tour and an evening most definitely worth capturing on video. Beautifully filmed and directed by Pierre Lamoureux and brilliantly mixed and mastered by Richard Chycki, this is in my opinion, a major highlight in our nearly 30 year career as a band. We are eagerly anticipating its release this fall and really hope that everyone enjoys it!”

This past year DREAM THEATER earned a second Grammy nomination for “Best Metal Performance” for the single “The Enemy Inside” from their current self-titled worldwide smash album (released September 24, 2013 on Roadrunner Records). “DREAM THEATER” made a spectacular debut this past fall, topping Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart while simultaneously entering at #7 on the overall Billboard 200. The extraordinary chart position marked the group’s third consecutive top 10 debut, and also saw "DREAM THEATER" making top 5 chart debuts in Japan, Germany, Italy, Canada, Argentina, Switzerland, Holland, and Finland, as well as top 10 debuts in Denmark, Austria, and Norway, with career high debuts in the United Kingdom and Australia. The band recently announced new tour dates which will see them bring their spectacular live show to South America, Asia and Australia later this fall.

While I've not had the chance to watch it, because I don't have my bluray player with me on the East Coast, I have listened to most of the live album.

In my opinion, BTFW has to be the best recorded live album they've had done. The balance between vocals and the instruments are done well and clear. Everything sound crisp, clear and just as good as seeing them in person.


The Quote of the Live album would have to be during "The Mirror" while James is commenting about people dancing to the song "How the hell can you dance to 'The Mirror'?"

Or the pull of the moon on the tide
But I don't believe that we're in this alone
I believe we're along for the ride
