Dream Theater have been at the top of the game for such a long time …
Old rona may be hanging around like a party guest who’s overstayed their welcome, but the legends in Stepson aren’t letting that dull their plans.

With the rest of this year being a write-off, the band has announced new dates for their Help Me, Help You tour, now set to take place in 2022.
It will kick off with a ‘huge appearance at UNIFY before transitioning to nightclub shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. They will also appear at the rescheduled Halloween Hysteria, now taking place on April 2nd 2022 (it’s still the spooky season to us, dammit!).
Unfortunately, Sydney’s Bloom will no longer be able to feature on the shows. Instead, Melbourne’s Outloved will take the reins, bringing all the emo vibes with them. They join fellow tour supports, Rumours, who dropped their If Only You Could Feel Something Too EP earlier in the year.
Help Me, Help You is available now through Sharptone Records. If you’re yet to give it a spin, take our 8/10 review as a sign to do so! We loved the band’s genre-bending approach, saying: “Call it punk, call it hardcore, call it pop, call it whatever you want. Whichever one takes your fancy, there’s something for you on Help Me, Help You.”
Catch all the new dates below. All current tickets for the shows will remain valid. If you cannot make the new dates, you can obtain a refund from your point of purchase.
