Dream Theater has announced Devin Townsend as the opener for their upcoming European tour. Townsend said he had to push aside a handful of already-planned headlining shows to accommodate the tour and will announce rescheduled dates soon.
"Hey all, Devin here. As absurd as it may sound in this day and age, I am (cautiously) pleased to announce a tour with Dream Theater. Over the past few years, I've found myself in the company of those cats, and I think they're good people and of course, a monster band. I look forward to playing things from the multiple new releases coming up, as well as from my entire catalog. It's a tour that will be sure to yield great musical moments, and confusion for all ? Thanks for the opportunity DT… see you soon with DT featuring DT ?
"Also: I know so many of you have been understanding and patient as we reschedule the headline shows from more than a year ago. It has been chaos on every level, but it's beginning to see the dawn as dates as being proposed. Please hang on just a little longer and we'll have information for you soon.
"This does mean that most of the European 'Lightwork' headline shows will now be rescheduled to a later date. Tickets already purchased will remain vaild. Please check with your ticketing vendor for their refund policy.
