As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Dream Theater will release their ninth live album, “Distant Memories – Live In London”, on November 27th.

Recorded at their sold-out show at London’s Apollo Theatre, the live release documents the band’s world tour in support of “Distance Over Time” and the 20-year anniversary of their seminal concept album, “Metropolis Part 2 – Scenes From A Memory”.

Check out the live version of “Fatal Tragedy” here:

“Performing ‘SFAM’ live in its entirety 20 years after its initial release was a ton of fun for all of us. ‘Fatal Tragedy’ is one of the darker, heavier and more exciting songs on ‘Scenes’ and always gets an amazing response from our audience. It’s an important track because lyrically it helps to establish the story’s plot details while musically it showcases some of our favorite instrumental moments on the album,” explains John Petrucci.
