John Petrucci of Dream Theater to play the Egg, October 8

The Egg is pleased to announce that John Petrucci, guitarist and co-founder of Dream Theater, will perform on October 8. He will be joined by Mike Portnoy on drums, and Dave LaRue on bass. A reunited Meanstreak will open the show.

John Petrucci is best known as guitarist and co-founder of the GRAMMY Award winning progressive metal band, Dream Theater. A Guitar World Hall of Fame member and recipient of the SENA Performer’s European Guitar Award, John has been named multiple times as the #1 Guitarist, Guitarist of The Year and Best Metal Guitarist by Prog magazine, Total Guitar, Guitar Player, Guitar World, Music Radar and BURRN! Magazine.

His first solo album, Suspended Animation, has long been the benchmark of instrumental guitar performance. The even-longer-anticipated 2020 sequel, Terminal Velocity, features former Dream Theater bandmate Mike Portnoy on drums, and the legendary Dave LaRue on bass.
