Dream Theater will tour the U.S. this year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its 1992 breakthrough album Images and Words

The band already has a European tour booked for the anniversary. Recently, guitarist John Petrucci has confirmed that U.S. dates are forthcoming, reports Metalsucks.net.

"We're gonna take the summer off," Petrucci said, " and I have my camp in August. We'll reconvene in September and we're gonna be playing in Asia. And we're gonna bring the smae tour to North America, where, as soon as we announced [the European tour], all our U.S. fans were like, 'You've gotta come here.' So we will do that."

The guitarist added the tour will probably conclude around the holidays, after which the band will begin working on a new album.

Dream Theater's second album, Images and Words, became a hit on the strength of the single for their song "Pull Me Under." While the band enjoyed only niche radio play in the ensuing years, they have grown a massive cult following and have gone on to influence an entire generation of upcoming rock artists.
