the band has been on tour throughout 2016, playing their new album “The Astonishing” in full. The show is entitled: “Dream Theater Presents The Astonishing”, and the setlist is comprised only of songs from the new album- a 2 hour show. This tour will probably mark the end of “The Astonishing Experience” which means this is the last chance for the fans to see the band play the album live in it’s entirety.
what do you think? will we get to see some kind of reunion with former band members for a show or two?
