Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci says he’s starting to panic ahead of the band’s world tour.

The run of dates to support latest album The Astonishing get underway next week with two nights at London’s Palladium on February 18 and 19, where they’ll play the 34-track album in full.

And with such an ambitious set planned, Petrucci says the reality of the their mammoth tour is starting to sink in.

He tells Music Radar: “We’re going to be in London rehearsing, getting the last-minute touches right on everything. We’ve never played that venue before, so it’s going to be a great way to kick off our world tour.

“It really is a lot of music. I’m kinda panicking at this point. There’s a lot to remember – it’s pretty crazy, even for us.”
