Progressive metal band Dream Theater will release a new live album, “Distant Memories — Live in London,” just in time for the holiday season.

The live set was recorded during the band’s show at London’s Apollo Theatre in February 2020, just before the touring industry shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. The release features a range of material, including songs from Dream Theater’s latest studio release, 2019’s “Distance Over Time,” plus the group’s popular 1999 alum, “Metropolis, Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory,” the latter of which the band performed in its entirety to celebrate the album’ 20th anniversary.

“Whether you had a chance to see this tour in person and want to relive what was hopefully an awesome concert experience or enjoying the performance on video for the first time, Distant Memories — Live In London very accurately and very beautifully captures the energy and excitement we all felt together at the Apollo this past February,” guitarist John Petrucci said in a statement.

“Distant Memories — Live in London” will arrive on Nov. 27 in a variety of formats, including CD, DVD and Blu-Ray. In advance of the release, the band is streaming the performance of the “Distance Over Time” track “Pale Blue Dot” via YouTube. Watch the live performance below.
