DREAM THEATER frontman James LaBrie has checked in with the following update via Facebook:
"Just chilling out back home. Checked out a lot of the photos taken by fans and professionals, extremely great and revealing shots of how intense the shows are. Had a great and very memorable time throughout the European and UK jaunt. Thank you to all for being a part of it.
Looking forward to the North American tour. See you all there and let's definitely kick some ass!
At this point we are hoping to swing around later on in the tour and hit the cities we didn't get to this time. Will do all we can to make this happen.
Talk to you soon."

Dream Theater are collaborating with photographer Rob Fenn on a hardcover photo book documenting the North American leg of their Along For The Ride Tour, which kicks off on March 20th. Fenn will be traveling with the band all the way from Toronto, Ontario's Massey Hall to Mesa, Arizona's Ikeda Theater, shooting 23 shows in all, including the special March 25th performance at the Boston Opera House which will feature an orchestra and choir from Berklee College of Music. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the Fuck Cancer foundation and Dying 2 Live.
"Being able to do a book project with an iconic and influential band such as Dream Theater is beyond a honor," says Fenn, who's previously shot limited edition prints featuring KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's Jesse Leach and SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR's Corey Taylor. "Cancer affects my life daily, so to be able to give back through my work on a project like this is a true blessing."
Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci adds: "We were introduced to Rob’s work through Mark Abramson at Roadrunner. His photos are amazing and as soon as we found out about the cause, we were all immediately on board. All of our lives have been affected by cancer in some way and all of us have lost loved ones to the disease. This is a great way for us to be a part of the crusade toward finding a cure, and we are looking forward to working together with Rob on the upcoming North American tour."
