Progressive metal band Dream Theater played the Molson Amphitheater in Toronto last night. It's no secret that all members of the band are huge Rush fans and often discuss in interviews how much of an influence Rush has been on their music. They've also been known to cover Rush songs in concert from time to time. Last night they started out their encore with a cover of Rush's The Camera Eye with a backdrop of the Moving Pictures album cover. Rush hasn't performed this song live since the Signals tour. Here's a bootleg video of the performance:
If you are aware of any better quality videos, please let me know. Thanks to DigitalMan745 for the heads up and the video link.
