New York progressive metal band Dream Theater will take their Progressive Nation tour overseas for the first time with a run through Europe and the UK throughout Sept, Oct and Nov of 2009.
Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy comments: “After the excitement of putting together two very cool PROGRESSIVE NATION packages for North America, I knew it was time to bring the concept overseas and share some of these other great bands with our amazing fans throughout Europe and the UK."
Joining the tour will be Opeth from Stockholm Sweden. Vocalist/Guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt commented: "Once my man "The Port" suggested they're going to bring PROGRESSIVE NATION over to Europe, I more or less begged him to get us on it, haha! We had such a great time doing it in North America and it did many great things for us as a band. It's fair to say that I can't wait to get going with this one. It will be a blast, believe me!!”
Los Angeles band Bigelf and Canadian band Unexpect will also be on the bill.
