Posted on Sunday, April 15 @ 20:15:31 UTC by nightowl

As reported in the Dream Theater newsletter, the band will be playing dates in Europe, including many festival dates, during the month of June. Plus, there are tours planned for the US this summer, fall dates in Europe, with Asia, South America, and possibly Australia to follow.

Also, Mike Portnoy's In Constant Motion DVD is now available, and there is a contest tied in with this DVD release. "Featuring three discs with over seven hours of instruction, live and studio performances and insights on the numerous projects he has been involved with, In Constant Motion is Mike Portnoy's latest DVD release from Hudson Music.

"In Constant Motion is the Dream Theater drummer's first DVD since his award-winning video, Liquid Drum Theater, was released in 1999 and covers music from the last three Dream Theater albums as well as several of Mike's outside projects, including tribute bands Yellow Matter Custard (The Beatles), Hammer Of The Gods (Led Zeppelin), Amazing Journey (The Who) and Cygnus & The Sea Monsters (Rush). With such a wealth and diversity of instructional and performance material, In Constant Motion is recommended for drummers of all interest and ability levels." [We previously reported on this DVD release on March 3 - read that item here -ed.]

"Legendary drummer Mike Portnoy and five of the drum industry's leading companies have teamed up to give drummers a chance to win the actual acrylic drumkit Mike plays on his new DVD, In Constant Motion!

"With prizes totaling nearly $25,000 in retail value, the In Constant Motion contest features a Grand Prize including a Tama 'Mirage Black Ice' drumset with Portnoy signature Melody Master snare drums, Sabian cymbals, Pro-Mark drumsticks and Remo heads as well as autographed copies of the 3-disc, 7-hour In Constant Motion DVD from Hudson Music.
