Roadrunner Records' group Dream Theater announces the details of its fall North American headline tour. The trek, which begins October 5, will see the pioneering group performing their widely acclaimed double concept album "The Astonishing" in immersive and interactive settings for a unique and unparalleled live experience. Dream Theater is performing at the American Bank Center Selena Auditorium on November 10 at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 16 at 10:00 AM (local) at American Bank Center box office, online at or to charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Consisting of 34 tracks spread across two unique acts, "The Astonishing" debuted atop Billboard's Rock and Hard Rock album charts, marking the group's third No. 1 Hard Rock album following "Black Clouds & Silver Linings" and 2013's self-titled LP. "Even for a group that has blazed new trails consistently, there's never been anything to compare to 'The Astonishing', the full-blown rock-opera, jumbo-size concept album. Put simply, the new release lives up to its title in every way imaginable," exclaimed Rolling Stone. "The Astonishing" is available at all DSPs and in a wide range of distinctive versions, including standard 2-CD set, 4-LP vinyl box set and a limited edition deluxe box set, all of which are currently available via Dream Theater's web store.

Recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York with John Petrucci producing, studio luminary Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush) engineering/mixing and legendary arranger, composer and conductor David Campbell orchestrating, "The Astonishing" paints a tale of a retro-futurist post-apocalyptic dystopia ruled by medieval style feudalism. It's a place aching for a chosen one to rise above the noise and defeat an empire defined by the endless drone of noise machines and the illusion of safety in bland musical conformity.

Tickets available at the American Bank Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets including select Walmart* locations, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Additional fees may apply.
