Dream Theater have announced their "40th Anniversary Tour 2024 – 2025" and unveiled the first round of dates.

The trek — presented as "An Evening With Dream Theater" — will mark the prog-metal giants' first outing since drummer Mike Portnoy's return to the lineup. The just-announced European leg consists of stops in 23 cities and kicks off on October 20th and wraps November 24th.

"This tour is going to be incredibly special for all of us!" the band commented in a joint statement. "Each show will surely be filled with anticipation and a variety of emotions. We can't wait to step onstage together once again and begin this historic celebration of 40 years with everyone this Fall. This is just the beginning, and we will have plenty of more exciting Dream Theater news to share in the coming months."

Stay tuned for news on a North American leg of the tour — as well as news on Dream Theater's upcoming 16th studio album, which will be the first with Portnoy since 2009's Black Clouds & Silver Linings.
