Wow. While the news that prog-metal pioneers Dream Theater would be coming to Malta was always bound to get a whole lot of local rockers very hyped, there’s a difference between hype and what this event has very quickly ended up becoming.

After completely selling out in less than 48 hours, the Dream Theater concert will be moving out of the Mediterranean Conference Centre to a bigger, more outdoor venue: Pjazza San Ġorġ

That’s right; the event got so much traction, that the only way to deal with what the organisers called “an unprecedented demand for tickets” was to move to an actual pjazza in Valletta. And fair enough, considering this is going to be a summer gig!

The legendary proggers will be swinging by the islands for their Distance Over Time tour, in what will be a celebration of 20 years since the much-loved concept album Scenes From A Memory

The iconic pioneering band have influenced generations of musicians to pick up an instrument and rock out, as well as learn many an arpeggio.

“Rallying round the virtuoso guitar playing of John Petrucci, they can be as sweet on the heart as much they can be crushing on the bones,”said Lou Bondi, the Artistic Director of Rock’N Malta. “I have no doubt that this gig will be a historic triumph for rock in this country and a milestone for Rock’N Malta. Rock is life.”

“The band have achieved a startlingly sublime synthesis of soaring and unmistakable melodies, progressive instrumentation and aggressive heaviness unrivaled in the hard rock scene. James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitars), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards), John Myung (Bass), and Mike Mangini (Drums) share a unique bond with one of the most passionate fan bases around the globe as evidenced by their two Grammy Award nominations and 15 million records sold worldwide.”
