Dream Theater have announced that their 2012 will start off with a full tour of Europe.
Before they cross the pond for the 5-week trek with openers Periphery, DT will release their new album, "A Dramatic Turn Of Events," on September 13, and play a 5-week North American tour beginning September 24 in San Francisco.
To help launch the new album, DT will take part in an in-store signing session at Guitar Center (25 West 14th Street) in New York City on Friday, September 16 at 6 p.m.
Attendance is strictly limited to 400 fans, so in order to guarantee yourself a spot in line, you must go to Guitar Center starting September 13 and purchase the band's new record; along with your CD, you'll be given a wristband which will get you into the event on Friday the 16th.
