(New York, NY) – On the heels of the recent announcement of the solo tour that made global headlines, GRAMMY Award winning guitarist John Petrucci, of the ground-breaking and influential prog-metal band Dream Theater, is announcing more dates to his first headlining solo tour. The shows in Boston, MA (October 7th); New York, NY (October 13th) and Washington, DC (October 15th) were announced last month, and fans demanded more performances after learning that the tour would feature former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and legendary bassist Dave LaRue all on the same stage. The tour is adding 24 more stops to the already announced dates including Providence, RI; Atlanta, GA; Orlando, FL and Dallas, TX to name a few. For more information on all shows and to purchase tickets, fans can head over to https://johnpetrucci.com.

John Petrucci will be performing material from his recently released solo album, Terminal Velocity, as well as songs from his widely acclaimed debut release, Suspended Animation on the upcoming tour. Terminal Velocity marked the first time that John and former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy recorded together since Mike left the band in 2010. Now, John will take his instrumental trio on the road performing live with Mike, and legendary bassist Dave LaRue in an on-stage reunion that has been 12 years in the making. The recently reunited all-female 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. The historic tour will run through October and November and promises to be an unforgettable night of live musicianship.

About Meanstreak


Meanstreak is an all-female metal band from New York, formed in 1985 by Marlene Portnoy (guitars) and Rena Sands (guitars) who along with bandmates Bettina France (vocals), Martens Myung (bass), and Yael (drums), forged their way into male dominated territory, becoming one of the first all-female thrash metal bands. With influences such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica, they were true pioneers for women in metal and recorded an album with legendary producer Alex Perialas at Pyramid Sound in Ithaca, NY. Meanstreak’s 1988 release Roadkill put them on the metal charts and is considered one of the best female thrash metal albums of all time. They disbanded in the early 90’s when the grunge scene took over and recently reunited in 2022 to bring back their hard hitting, melodic, heavy metal blend to the studio and stage. Meanstreak will be hitting the road this summer and will be recording their unreleased demos as well as some newly written material later in 2022.
