LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT - the band featuring DREAM THEATER's Mike Portnoy (drums), John Petrucci (guitar) and Jordan Rudess (keyboards) alongside bass legend Tony Levin (KING CRIMSON, PETER GABRIEL) - have announced a second show for their upcoming 10th Anniversary reunion tour. It will take place on June 23rd at 11:30pm at BB King's, as the 8:00pm show is sold out. Tickets will go on sale March 31st at 10:00am EST at this location.

LTE's tour schedule is now as follows:

21 - Bethlehem, PA - NEARfest X
23 - New York City - BB King's (8:00pm - SOLD OUT)
23 - New York City - BB King's (11:30pm)
25 - Chicago, IL - Vic Theater
27 - Downey, CA - Downey Theater
28 - San Francisco, CA - Bay Area Rock Fest

Portnoy and Petrucci are founding members of Dream Theater, and have won accolades from fans and critics alike for their prowess on the drum kit and guitar, respectively.

Rudess was previously known for his blazing keyboard work with the DIXIE DREGS and the RUDESS/MORGENSTEIN PROJECT and joined Dream Theater officially after the second Liquid Tension Experiment album sessions.

Tony Levin needs no introduction - stick and bass maestro, played with everyone from King Crimson to Peter Gabriel to YES to SARAH MCLACHLAN.

Liquid Tension Experiment's two studio albums, Liquid Tension Experiment (1998) and Liquid Tension Experiment 2 (1999), are filled to the brim with everything from blazing, chops-laden sonic attacks ('Paradigm Shift') to melodic anthems ('When The Water Breaks') to humorous jams ('Chris And Kevin's Excellent Adventure').

The improvisational nature in the writing sessions permitted the band to stretch out to many different influences, including rock, metal, prog, funk, blues and even ragtime.
