About Dream Theater

∙ In 1992, Dream Theater released their breakthrough song and biggest hit to date, the Shakespeare-quoting “Pull Me Under.”
∙ Their fifth album, 1999’s Metropolis, Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory, was named among the 100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time by Guitar World magazine.
∙ In 2007, Utah governor Jon Huntsman—an avowed prog-rock fan—declared July 30 Dream Theater Day in celebration of the band’s first show in the state in seven years.
∙ Beginning with 2009’s Black Clouds & Silver Linings, they had three consecutive albums reach the Top 10 of Billboard’s Pop chart.
∙ A 2011 Rolling Stone readers poll named Dream Theater among the best prog-rock bands of all time.
∙ They’ve been nominated for two Grammy Awards, including Best Metal Performance for the 2013 single “The Enemy Inside.”
