Along for the Ride with Dream Theater

Progressive rock icons, Dream Theater- featuring, Pearl artist, Mike Mangini on drums- recently brought their highly anticipated ‘Along For The Ride’ World Tour through the Music Mecca of Los Angeles, CA, to perform an electrifying set at the historic Orpheum Theater. The 2000+ fans on hand witnessed an extraordinary concert experience with Dream Theater displaying their usual superiority and expertise in their individual craft, while taking fans on 3-hour-long journey throughout their extensive catalog. Included in this lengthy repertoire, Dream Theater performed a few of their newer tracks from their latest and self-titled studio album, one of which being the single "The Enemy Inside", which earned Dream Theater a Grammy Nomination under the category of "Best Metal Performance". A live video of Dream Theater performing the track can be seen and heard below.

Pearl artist, Mike Mangini, once again thrilled the crowd with his unending talents behind the kit, perfectly executing each complicated detail of Dream Theater’s incredibly complex songs with the finest precision, along with displaying his blistering speed and jaw-dropping technicality.  At the start of this tour, during the European leg which kicked off earlier this year, Mangini unveiled his beautiful and completely custom Masterworks Series drums, complete with matching Rocket Toms, a custom 10x6.5 snare drum, an E-Pro setup, and a stunning one-of-a-kind finish which is all supported on a massive two-tier ICON Rack System.  Mike Mangini’s full specs can be found here.
