Dream Theater: Panem Et Circenses: Live In Rome, Italy [DVD]

Released: Jul 11, 2011. This DVD was released in 2011 but was recorded in the "Octavarium" era so don't let the release date fool you. This doesn't stand up to some of DT's other live DVDs but it's still an essential for any hardcore fan.

Dream Theater: Score [DVD]

Release Date: August 29, 2006. For Dream Theater fans, "Score" is a godsend. It provides not only the orchestral concert, but also a documentary detailing the evolution of the band. Even if you've never heard a Dream Theater song before, you might just become a believer when you watch even just one of the solos on "Score".

Dream Theater: Once In A Livetime

Release Date: Oct 27, 1998. Genre: Progressive Metal, Neo-Prog. Label: Elektra. Number Of Tracks: 23. Admittedly, "Livetime" can be exhausting; numerous tracks run between 6 and 14 minutes, and interaction between frontman James LaBrie and the audience is minimal.
