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!”
