Dream Theater To Film New Concert DVD In Argentina This Month
Legendary progressive rock band, Dream Theater, has selected Over the Edge Productions to produce their upcoming concert event and Mike Leonard to be the director.
Dream Theater announced on Friday they will be filming a concert DVD for their latest world tour in support of “A Dramatic Turn of Events,” on August 19th and 20th at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
“We are thrilled to be working with Dream Theater again, especially on such a monumental project. Dream Theater is a legend in the music world, and they’re all really amazing guys,” says Leonard, founder of Over the Edge Productions (OTE), a New York-based production company specializing in entertainment television.
Last year, OTE produced a documentary for Dream Theater entitled The Spirit Carries On, which was released on DVD with their album and chronicles the journey they took to find their new drummer, Mike Mangini.
The Concert DVD will showcase the best of this two-night live event filmed with up to 10 cameras and ultimately released on BluRay disc. Bonus features will also include documentary segments with the band as a follow up to The Spirit Carries On movie.
“We have had such an incredible time performing all across the globe over the past year and it has been an amazing and event filled tour. We are really excited about ending things up in South America and the two-night concert and DVD shoot in Argentina is sure to be an amazing evening! Better yet is to be working with Mike Leonard and everyone at [Over the Edge Productions] once again. Our experience with Mike and crew on “The Spirit Carries On” documentary was nothing short of spectacular and we know that they will deliver our best work to date. Between the show, documentary and interview footage, we are confident that Mike will not only deliver an epic concert video, but that he will capture the real essence of [Dream Theater’s] South American experience to be enjoyed by our fans all around the world,” said guitarist John Petrucci in a press release.
The Dream Theater concert event will take place in Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The former amusement park, located in the heart of Buenos Aires near the district of Puerto Madero, has been known to host countless musical performances and sporting events for over the past eighty years.
