Dream Theater’s keyboard maestro Jordan Rudess has announced further dates on his From Bach To Rock solo piano tour.

Last month, Rudess checked in from the studio to report he had finished his parts for the upcoming and as-yet-untitled Dream Theatre album (opens in new tab)

And, with those in the bag, he’s planning a further 16 shows on his piano tour, which he debuted earlier this year in the US, UK and Europe. This time, he'll play shows across three continents, kicking off in Tokyo, Japan, on November 12 and wrap up with a show in Rio, Brazil, on December 10.

Rudess says: “Many of my fans only know me as a progressive rock keyboardist, but piano is where it all started for me.

“Sitting at the piano has always felt like the most natural way for me to express my musicality. This tour is bringing me to some of the biggest and most exciting markets for Dream Theater. 

“I’m really excited to return to these countries and share this acoustic evening with some of the most supportive fans in the world.”
