Known for his work in the prog-metal band Dream Theater, John Petrucci is respected for his variety of guitar styles and skills. Then he recorded Terminal Velocity with former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy since Mike left the band in 2010. Now, John will take his instrumental trio on the road performing live with Mike Portnoy, and bassist Dave LaRue in an on-stage reunion that has been 12 years in the making.

The recently reunited all-female metal band Meanstreak will be the special guest openers for the tour. Meanstreak is comprised of guitarists Marlene Portnoy and Rena Sands, vocalist Bettina France, bassist Martens Myung and drummer Yael.
