Dream Theater‘s upcoming fall U.S. tour has been postponed because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
“This was an extraordinarily challenging decision to make but needed to be done after taking into consideration the varying local mandates across North America,” the prog metallers write in a statement. “In an effort to present the absolute most complete and engaging Dream Theater experience that our fans around the globe have come to expect, we feel we are all best served to postpone all touring activities to early 2022.”
The tour, which was originally scheduled to launch at the end of October, is now expected to kick off in February of next year, although the exact new dates have yet to be announced.
Dream Theater is set to release a new album called A View from the Top of the World on October 22.
