Reno, Nev. – Progressive metal band Dream Theater will rock the Grand Theatre stage at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) on November 19. Known originally as Majesty, Dream Theater has taken on the music scene since 1985 and has been labeled as the early progenitors of the progressive metal genre. Through a combination of heavy metal, speed metal, progressive rock and glam metal, Dream Theater was able to create a unique blend of distorted guitars and fast riffing with music focusing on technical proficiency and precise execution. Grammy Award nominated Dream Theater’s North American tour coincides with the launch of their wildly acclaimed new double concept album “The Astonishing.” Tickets start at $28 and are on sale now.

The Grand Theatre, which underwent $10 million in renovations in 2015, has marked itself as one of the top entertainment venues in the West with a capacity of more than 2,700, including well-appointed luxury seats with more legroom, wider seats and wider aisles. In addition, exclusive VIP booths with personalized beverage and bottle service are available for small groups and special occasions. Designed by John Sergio Fisher & Associates, the theatre also includes a two-tiered entry with an all-new, enclosed lobby, state-of-the-art lighting and sound renovations, as well as new artist facilities including dressing rooms, green rooms and an artist lounge.
