DREAM Theater have announced spring dates for their anniversary tour with them embarking on their UK leg in April.

The Roadrunner Records' band will celebrate their 25th anniversary of their RIAA gold certificate album Images and Words.

Their shows in the UK will include a live set of Images and Words in its entirety along with fan favourites from their back catalogue.

Next month Dream Theater will embark on the first leg of the Images, Words & Beyond 25th Anniversary Tour, kicking things off with two sold-out nights at Rome, Italy’s Auditorium Parco Della Musica. Additional tour dates in Norway and Finland have also been added to the first leg thanks in part to the tour’s fan response.

Dream Theater recently concluded the second leg of their extensive North American headline tour which saw the group performing their acclaimed double concept album The Astonishing in an interactive setting.

Dream Theater, made up of John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboards and continuum) and Mike Mangini (drums), will perform at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff on April 22.

Tickets cost £32.50 and are available from the box office on 029 2022 4488.
