Dream Theater have one of the most devout followings out there, and visitors to their Facebook page were promised a “special gift” when checking back at 6am on Christmas Day. The band delivered big time, posting a complete two-disc compilation of material recorded in 2011 and 2012 available via BitTorrent that didn’t make the cut on their recent live album, Live at Luna Park. With this compilation, fans now have every song they played on the tour with the exception of cover songs.
This was an awesome move by the band. First off, they’ve always encouraged bootlegs, even setting up YtseJam Records to sell “official bootlegs” of their shows. Secondly, they’re a band that thrives in a live setting. Also, they’re about to go on the road in 2014, which this 2-disc compilation is a none-too-subtle reminder of. And lastly, it could encourage those that haven’t picked up Live At Luna Park to do so after hearing this. Scroll down for the release and torrent link:
TO OUR FANS ALL OVER THE WORLD!
It is because of all of you that “A Dramatic Tour Of Events” was such a success. We enjoyed playing to you all each and every night on the road!
As a special “Thank You” we are releasing a compilation of live tracks that were not included on “Live At Luna Park.” With these now being available, you have a complete documentation of all the songs that were played during the tour (with the exception of cover songs.)
Happy Holidays, and we look forward to having you “Along For The Ride” in 2014.
