Dream Theater Bring Their Highly Anticipated “Images, Words & Beyond 25th Anniversary Tour” to Asheville

For Immediate Release



AUGUST 21, 2017

ASHEVILLE, NC – Dream Theater has announced the third and final leg of their “Images, Words & Beyond 25th Anniversary Tour,” which sees the pioneering group celebrating the 25th anniversary of their milestone RIAA gold-certified album, Images & Words. The North American headline tour will make a stop at Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville, NC on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 8PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 25 at 10AM and are available at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium ticket office, all Ticketmaster locations, Ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone: 800-745-3000.

Like previous legs, the show will be presented as an “Evening with Dream Theater,” with no opening act. The tour will feature an unparalleled live set of Images & Words in its entirety, along with fan favorites from their deep, widely-acclaimed catalog.

Said founding guitarist John Petrucci of the upcoming trek, “We are so psyched to bring our Images, Words & Beyond tour to North America this Fall! It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 25 years since Images was released! We’ve been having a blast playing those songs each night, and sharing memories and stories from our time in the studio back in 1992. We know that this is such an important album to so many of our fans, both old and new, so we plan on making this a really special night by playing I&W in its entirety as well as breaking out some rare material, and a few of our latest tunes, in order to make this landmark evening compete. We hope to see all of you there! Don’t miss it”
