DREAM THEATER: ‘Live At Budokan’ To Receive Blu-Ray Release

Eagle Rock has set an October 18
release date for the Blu-ray edition of DREAM THEATER‘s 2004 concert video “Live At Budokan”.

“Live At Budokan”
presents DREAM THEATER‘s entire
three-hour performance at Tokyo’s famed Budokan arena on April 26, 2004, along
with a bonus disc rich in supplementary material. Disc 1 finds the metallic
progressive-rock quintet at its awe-inspiring best, plowing through its catalog
of dramatic epics and jack-hammer instrumentals, including five of the seven
songs from 2003’s “Train of Thought”.
Disc 2 features an extended drum solo from percussionist extraordinaire Mike Portnoy; gear tours from guitarist John Petrucci and keyboardist Jordan Rudess (fascinating for lay people
and downright revelatory for musicians); and a half-hour documentary on DREAM THEATER‘s 2004 stint in Japan
punctuated by tantalizing snippets of band rehearsals. The shooting and editing
for the concert are a music lover’s dream, with lengthy shots that linger on the
performances of individual band members. Disc 2 takes this even further with a
multi-angle sequence of the 12-minute “Instrumedley”.
