Dream Theatre

 July 6, 2010 - 6:45pm MBNA Stage

The superb guitar playing of John Petrucci elevated Dream Theater to the upper echelons of contemporary heavy metal. While its line-up has continually evolved, the Long Island-based quintet has consistently delivered sharp-edged music. Dream Theater is known for its high-energy concert performances. While they've released several live albums—Live at the Marquee, recorded at the London club; Live in Japan, recorded during the Music in Progress tour in 1993; and a triple CD and DVD, Live Scenes from New York—they remain one of heavy metal's most bootlegged bands.
Originally named Majesty by Berklee College of Music students Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy, the band soon expanded with the addition of keyboard player Kevin Moore and vocalist Chris Collins. Releasing an eight-tune demo simply called Majesty Demo, as Majesty, the group sold 1,000 copies within six months. The departure of Collins in late 1986 left Majesty without a vocalist, and after a long period of auditioning possible replacements, the group recruited Charlie Dominici in November 1987 (with James Labrie stepping up to the plate in 1991). Changing its name, the group agreed on "Dream Theater," inspired by a now-demolished California movie theater.
