Euro 2017 Winter - Images And Words and Beyond
« on: November 15, 2016, 03:03:18 AM »
Just saw on Facebook an annoncement of three shows in Sweden in February with Images & Words and beyond.

They will play I&W in full and select favorites from the Catalogue.

25 years anniversary tour of the iconic album.

Look out for dates in other areas of Europe.

Edit... dates are added here:

BREAKING NEWS:

Several dates have been added to http://www.dreamtheater.net/tour   in europe.

Apparently they're doing a tour celebrating Images And Words 25th - playing the entire album and several other songs.




Why has this not announced properly?

There will be a reckoning.

Saw it announced by the promoter on facebook




Link not working unfortunately....

This should please the fans that were disappointed in the TA tour only beeing TA. Myself I would have loved to see TA again.

Thats a rather late announcement for dates in February.  And no UK date?  Colour me sad :(  Wonder if they're trying to plug a financial gap left by an underpeforming tour?

I MUST go to one of these shows - it'll finally give me the chance to see Learning to Live and Metropolis performed live! Fingers crossed for at least one UK show.

Also, good luck James!  :omg:

Dayum, I surely hope this tour comes to Finland as well! :o 3 dates in Sweden and 0 here would be unfair.

I wonder if they'll make this a year-long celebration and come back to the States... I'd like the chance to see this. Otherwise, as it stands, the last two "Anniversary" tours would be Europe-only tours.

I would be extremely surprised if they did a third leg in the US. The sales of this second leg arent all that. I assume they'll do this second EU leg, then a leg in asia/oz, and then take a few months off. then we probably wont hear much from them until mid 2018...

Or they'll come to the states with that tour knowing that it's what the majority of the fans want. It could be a way for the band to recoup some of the money they likely lost on the second Astonishing leg.

I think it's safe to assume that the second leg of The Astonishing can't be compared in ticket sales to what I&W would be.  That said, I am going to The Astonishing tomorrow night and can't wait.  I love the album.

I would go see every tour if they started doing every album in entirety, one per tour, starting from the beginning.

They must definitely do an Asian leg: where would they shoot their "Astonishing" BR? Maybe this European leg was set to raise money to pay for the shooting of the DVD. I'm pretty convinced that they have lost a certain amount of money with "the Astonishing live" (huge production and tickets not selling well) so they need to find money without spending too much: a "back to classics" tour is a good way (a bit like what Marillion is sometimes doing) and here of course means doing the whole Images and Words album (btw other albums have their anniversaries in 2017: FII, 6DOIT and SC but Images and Words is a classic).

Highly unlikely.  That isn't how it works.

Will try to get a ticket but I'm not that thrilled IMHO..I'm very dissapointed its not part of the Astonishing tour as I was awaiting a 2nd leg playing the whole thing. Maybe Im alone in this but a whole leg supporting an classic album? I thought the SFAM support as a encore was a better choice. Very sad they overplayed it in the States...

I don't want to be a dick, but I would take an evening with the entire The Astonishing over this, being that none of the concerts were near me last time around. But still, it's not like I'm going to say no to the entire Images and words.  :lol

Fingers crossed for a Vienna or Budapest date.

Having seen an entire evening of The Astonishing just about a month ago, I would erase that evening for this in a heartbeat.  The TA concert was easily the worst of my 23 DT shows I've ever seen.  This would be pretty sweet!

Having seen The Astonishing twice in march I would take a third time of that over this...

Fair enough.  I'm glad there are plenty of people out there who like TA.  No matter how hard I try, I simply can't get into it.  So, I'll anxiously await a DT North American tour where I'm excited to hear the songs being played live.

I hope they do play the UK, BUT -

Last time they played the UK, they only played one venue (London Palladium)
The time before, they only played a festival support slot (Rambing Man)

Wouldn't be surprised if UK is forgotton about for the Eastern European countries that still seem to go see the band.

And why does Germany always get so many dates???

USA? Don't hold yer breath...

Being in Ireland I normally fly to UK and catch a show in London.  But with no sign of a UK date I may have to slip over to the Paris gig instead, and they go on sale tomorrow morning!  Not sure if I should wait to see if they add a UK date or just go ahead and grab some Paris tickets...

This is quite a frustrating thing to deal with - I know there must be reasons for it, but it would be so much better if all dates were announced at the same time. It's made worse if you have to travel long distances obviously too. You might be able to sell your ticket of course, but if you've paid for transport and accommodation, you're stuck. If you 'wait and see' you risk the show being sold out/getting a crappy seat and travel/accommodation prices increasing.

I know people who fly to Dublin to see major acts because they reckon it's cheaper than seeing the same act in London.

I've thought about making the trip to Paris to see them in the past, but never quite been able to justify it.

Yep that is exactly how I'm feeling right now!

I would love it if DT played a gig in Dublin! They actually played here in the 99/00 SFAM tour but haven't been back since.  As for London vs Paris, it actually works out about the same when you add flights, accommodation, tickets, and train. I actually caught both London shows and a Paris show earlier this year! The things we do for our fave band eh?
