The total program is still under construction, but so far we can tell you that there will be a mini Metal Market, where you can buy interesting CDs and stuff we will show interesting Dream Theater material on the video screens in the Maaspoort foyer (with bar, snackbar, restaurant), Anomaly (see review in the coming fanzine) will play from 4 PM until 5 PM. EVERY HOUR WE WILL DRAW LUCKY WINNERS OF BACKSTAGE PASSES, THAT WILL ENABLE YOU TO MEET DREAM THEATER DURING A SPECIAL MEET & GREET AFTER THE SHOW!

"Frontman James LaBrie recently spoke with Space In Your Face radio on CKMS in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario regarding DREAM THEATER's touring plans in support of their latest epic, Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory: "What we want to do in the new year, we want to go out with a huge production and because this is a concept album, we want to play it from beginning to end, the way a concept album should be played, and have it unfold, have imagery, have screens, and everything going on. So I'm kinda hitting our booking agents over the head and saying, 'you know, make it happen', so we'll see. And then we're gonna go basically everywhere in the world and present the album in that way". James also stated his goal is to bring the tour to Massey Hall in Toronto in the new year, the perfect venue for such an anticipated performance.
Darren "The Badger" Redick will be dedicating an hour of his radio show to "Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes From A Memory" on Wednesday, November 3rd, from 10 pm GMT (5 pm EST) on the internet radio station Rock Radio Network.
The show will be interspersed with an interview with James LaBrie, recorded by phone on Friday, October, 22nd. James will also be talking about his Mull Muzzler project.
