Dream Theater have moved their upcoming US tour due to COVID-19 concerns.

The prog-metal titans had planned to kick off their Top Of The World Tour on October 28 in Mesa, Arizona, hot on the heels of the release of their 15th studio album, 'A View From The Top Of The World', due out on October 22.

The trek will now get underway in February 2022, with the new dates to be announced shortly. Confirming the news in a post on their social media pages, the band wrote:

"In light of current instabilities to touring that remain due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel confident that this is the right decision. Know that we are as disappointed as you are that we will have to wait a little longer to bring Dream Theater music to you live. We miss performing for you all and can’t wait until we can be on stage bringing our new album and fan-favorites to you.

This was an extraordinarily challenging decision to make but needed to be done after taking into consideration the varying local mandates across North America. In an effort to present the absolute most complete and engaging Dream Theater experience that our fans around the globe have come to expect, we feel we are all best served to postpone all touring activities to early 2022. At this time, we ask that everyone hold on to their tickets as we are working frantically to finalize the reschedule of all of these dates. All shows are currently being re-booked to begin in February 2022. Please keep an eye on our website, and we’ll have a complete, updated itinerary shortly. All previously purchased tickets will be honored. Please consult your local point of purchase for any inquiries regarding refunds.

We know that we all have eagerly awaited a return to normalcy, and the opportunity to enjoy live Dream Theater music together again. We apologize profusely but hope that everyone can understand the logic behind this decision.

Playing music for our fans is all we ever want to do. We look forward to seeing each and every one of our fans as soon as possible. We wish it could have been sooner, but we are counting the days until we can see you all again."

The UK leg of the Top Of The World Tour will get underway next spring, followed by a run of European shows beginning in Paris on April 25.

The group recently unveiled the latest single from the forthcoming LP, Invisible Monster.
