Best known as guitarist and co-founder of the GRAMMY Award winning progressive metal band, Dream Theater, John Petrucci is headlining his first tour as a solo artist and will share the stage with Mike Portnoy, marking the first time in 12 years that they will perform live together!  A Guitar World Hall of Fame member and recipient of the SENA Performer’s European Guitar Award, John has been named multiple times as the #1 Guitarist, Guitarist of The Year and Best Metal Guitarist by Prog magazine, Total Guitar, Guitar Player, Guitar World, Music Radar and BURRN! Magazine.  His first solo album, Suspended Animation, has long been the benchmark of instrumental guitar performance.  The even-longer-anticipated 2020 sequel, Terminal Velocity, features former Dream Theater bandmate Mike Portnoy on drums, and the legendary Dave LaRue on bass. Don’t miss this instrumental trio as they hit the road in support of both albums and make their only Connecticut tour stop at the Playhouse!

The night kicks off with the newly reunited all-female metal icons, Meanstreak.  This tour promises to be an historic celebration of guitar virtuosity and musical prowess.
