Dream Theater has premiered a live video of “Fatal Tragedy,” taken from the band’s upcoming Distant Memories — Live in London release.
Distant Memories was recorded at London’s Apollo Theatre this past February. It includes performances of songs from Dream Theater’s latest album, 2019’s Distance Over Time, as well the band’s 1999 opus Metropolis, Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory in its entirety to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
“Performing [Scenes from a Memory] live in its entirety 20 years after its initial release was a ton of fun for all of us,” says guitarist John Petrucci.
“‘Fatal Tragedy’ is one of the darker, heavier and more exciting songs on Scenes and always gets an amazing response from our audience,” he adds. “It’s an important track because lyrically it helps to establish the story’s plot details while musically it showcases some of our favorite instrumental moments on the album.”
Distant Memories will be released November 27. You can watch the “Fatal Tragedy” performance streaming now on YouTube.
