    Well that sucks, 'cause if they're in Europe then they're not touring here!

    But I'm confused. Didn't they announce a new Prog Nation tour with Pain of Salvation and Beardfish?

    I don't see anything announced yet in North America on the tour site............as you can see by the European dates, they are back in the states by early July, which leaves many, many weeks of time left for the U.S. and Canada...........hey FA, down here where I live, they can tour into December. :)

    They can tour here into December too. :p Just not outdoors. And I happen to prefer our main outdoor venue to any of our large indoor venues.

    The Progressive Nation Tour is announced here. It's scheduled for July and August. So maybe there's still hope. Although last year's tour didn't come here, which was disappointing. Hopefully, they'll make it here this summer (while I'm not on vacation). I'd rather see this year's tour anyway. I had already seen Opeth and Three from last year's tour. But I've never seen POS, Beardfish or Zappa Jr.

    Oh, great you found it............I was looking at the tour page and you find it on the news page...........I guess I can live with that. :)

    I don't care for Opeth...........I'd much rather see Dweezil play Daddy's classics...........plus it also states that the new CD is to be released just before this North American leg, the Prog Nation..........sounds good to me.

    Two years ago I flew up to Chicago and caught the tour after having a conflict with the date in Austin............the year before that, I caught the tour at a beautiful outdoor venue on a gorgeous night in Albuquerque (that sold EXCELLENT mived drinks) hoping they make a couple of stops in Texas this year.

    Info on the new album...
    Dream Theater's "Black Clouds & Silver Linings" - Coming June 23rd!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    March 13, 2009

    New York, NY:

    Progressive metal veterans DREAM THEATER have announced BLACK
    CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS as the title of their tenth studio
    album. The band commenced work on the album - their second for
    Roadrunner Records, following up 2007's Systematic Chaos - in
    October of last year.

    Roadrunner will release the record on June 23. In addition to
    the standard version CD, the album will also be available on
    vinyl LP, as well as a 3-disc Special Edition CD that will
    include the full album, a CD of instrumental mixes of the
    album and a CD of six cover songs, the titles of which will
    be revealed at a later date.

    Six weeks prior to the June 23 street date, Roadrunner will
    release one cover song per week through digital retailers.

    Drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci are once
    again at the helm as producers, while Paul Northfield
    mixed the record.

    The band will embark on a world tour in support of the album
    beginning in Europe throughout June which will be followed
    by the second edition of the band's PROGRESSIVE NATION tour
    featuring Zappa Plays Zappa, Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish
    throughout North America in July/August.

    A video for the first single, "A Rite of Passage" will be
    shot in late March.

    The track listing for BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS is
    as follows:

    1. A Nightmare to Remember
    2. A Rite of Passage
    3. Wither
    4. The Shattered Fortress
