Opening for Dream Theater on June 21st
Lightning has struck for the third time! Gravity is very excited to announce that they will be opening for progressive metal icon Dream Theater during their Cleveland tour stop. This will be the third time that the band will open for Dream Theater; they also appeared as their opening act during their visits in 2007 and 2008. Gravity is truly honored to represent their city’s progressive rock scene as the local band on this bill, which also includes Crimson Projekt, a group of former King Crimson members such as Pat Mastelotto, Tony Levin and Adrian Belew.
This concert, as part of Dream Theater’s A Dramatic Tour of Events, will be held on Thursday, June 21st at the Jacob’s Pavilion at Nautica located on the east bank of the Cleveland Flats. Doors open at 7 p.m., at which time Gravity will begin their 45-minute set to kickoff the show. Tickets are available through the Live Nation website.
“We are so thrilled to be opening for one of our progressive rock idols once again!” said Gravity drummer Matt Kerschner . “It is just as much a ‘dream come true’ now as it was in 2007 when we opened for them after winning the High School Rock Off. We’d like to thank Live Nation for helping us become the featured local act for this Cleveland show, and we’re looking forward to sharing both old and new Gravity songs at this very special event!”
