And they’re promising to play a full two hour set

Fans of overly long guitar solos get psyched, progressive rock royalty Dream Theater are set to make their UAE debut in October.

The Grammy-nominated band, known for the technical proficiency and sweeping instrumentals, will grace the stage at The Dome, Dubai Sports City on 6 October.

What’s more, in true prog rock fashion, concert organisers Mainstage Events have promised that the gig will span a whopping two hours, likely giving fans a thorough selection of cuts from all 13 of the band’s studio albums.

The band are currently touring the world on their Images, Words & Beyond 25th Anniversary Tour, and will be fielding an all-star lineup including founding members guitarist John Petrucci and bassist John Myung, with long-time frontman James LaBrie on vocal duties.

No word on ticket prices yet, but we reached out to the organisers who informed us that tickets will go on sale soon via
