Dream Theater announce the release of ‘Breaking The Fourth Wall (Live from the Boston Opera House)’

Dream Theater 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 John Petrucci, filmed and directed by Pierre and François Lamoureux, and mixed and mastered by Richard Chycki, this special release is over 2 hours in length, and includes guest performances from The Berklee College of Music Orchestra and Choir. ‘Breaking The Fourth Wall (Live from the Boston Opera House)’ arrives September 29th.

1.-Dream-Theater1The collection will be available in multiple configurations including Blu-Ray, a 2 DVD set, and a webstore exclusive deluxe 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 watched on the band’s official YouTube Channel.  All pre-orders for the webstore exclusive will receive an instant download of “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 and really hope that everyone enjoys it!”

1980 – A Classic Rock Show ‘Special’ tonight from 7pm!

Following our homage to the 70s, The Classic Rock Show is back with another ‘Special’, this time we’re taking you back to the 80s.

Tonight, we begin our quest to showcase some of the very best rock music from the 80s. But we just couldn’t squeeze a whole decade of great music into one three-hour show. So we decided to break it up into ten, yes ten, ‘Specials’…’80 through to ’89!! These will go to air over the coming months.

Our Facebook Group will be the usual place to get all the chat and comment during the show: www.facebook.com/groups/theclassicrockshow

Listen links can be found on our homepage.

See you at 7pm.

Asia’s ‘High Voltage’ live album out soon!

asia_liveRecorded on the 24th July 2010 at the inaugural High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London, this ASIA live CD / DVD captures the band, in the original line-up (Geoff Downes – keyboards, Steve Howe – guitars, Carl Palmer – drums, John Wetton – lead vocal and bass),  performing classic material from the 80s, plus songs from the first two albums of its reunion, “Phoenix” and “Omega”.

Asia

The show was performed to an enthusiastic festival crowd ready to hear the world’s biggest selling album of 1982 performed in its entirety for the first time in Europe.  In fact, this remains the only video document of the original line-up performing the debut album in full.

This live CD / DVD is an irreplaceable companion to the original studio album and the reunion that saw the original members of ASIA return to and stay at the top of their game, this time in front of a ‘home audience’.

asiaSince then of course, Steve Howe has stepped aside and Asia brought in Sam Coulson who went on to record the superb ‘Gravitas’ album, released in March. Our interview with John Wetton is here.

“High Voltage” will be released by Frontiers Records in a glossy digi-pack CD / DVD digi-pack format with Roger Dean artwork and the track listing includes:
Only Time Will Tell, Wildest Dreams, One Step Closer, An Extraordinary Life, Time Again, Cutting it Fine, Without You, I Believe, Here Comes the Feeling, Sole Survivor, Heat of the Moment

Release dates: EU: August 22nd 2014. NA: August 25th 2014

john-garcia-solo-album

John Garcia to release his solo album!

John Garcia is set to release his solo album John Garcia on August 4th in the UK on Napalm Records!  John recently completed work on the first video from the album for the song “My Mind” and The Classic Rock Show will be discussing all this and much more with John very soon.

With ‘Vista Chino’, Garcia makes music very close to his ‘Kyuss’ roots, but on his self-titled solo album he also ventures out with some experiments and convinces all along the line. This record is full of first-class, catchy rock numbers that commute equally between Classic Rock and concise Stoner elements.

Once you’ve made contact and started ingesting the tracks ‘My Mind’ or ‘5000 Miles’, you will see this album is spreading like an infection to the body and one is happy to be involved in the short and crisp ‘Saddleback’ or  ‘Confusion’, which is strongly rooted in Blues. ‘Her Bullets Energy’ is the next ultra-bouncer on the record, with the legendary Robby Krieger (The Doors) on the guitar. John Garcia has delivered a multi-faceted and extremely intense solo album that will stir up more dust than a sandstorm in the California desert. Danko Jones, Tom Brayton, Mark Diamond and also Garcia’s old cohort of Kyuss, Nick Oliveri show up as guest musicians to round out this solo masterpiece.

A preview clip of the entire album can be viewed below.

‘John Garcia’ is available on CD, Vinyl and Digitally on Napalm Records on August 4, 2014 – pre-order here.

Keep an eye out for the interview with John.
