Rock fans traditionally hold up lighters at concerts during ballads so that heartbroken moths know where they can go and, for once, not be judged. Get drawn in with this GrouponLive deal for one G-Pass to see Dream Theater at Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City. For $30, you get one G-Pass for reserved mid to rear loge-level seating in sections 10–19 on Monday, July 2, at 7:45 p.m. (up to a $62.75 value, including all fees).

Dream Theater, the inimitable heroes of progressive metal, return to the road to give distinguished ears a heaping taste of its thick, impenetrable soundscapes. The band’s 11th studio album, A Dramatic Turn of Events, contains the Grammy-nominated single “On the Backs of Angels” and sounds so polished that many believe the band started writing songs in utero by practicing on their umbilical cords. From guitarist John Petrucci’s Guitar Player magazine centerfolds and mantel of Best Metal Guitarist medals to John Myung’s acclaimed undertow bass and Mike Mangini’s labyrinth mega-drum kit (a city made of skins, cymbals, and Neil Peart’s bucket list), the prodigious talents and mind-altering melodies of Dream Theater have drilled into the subconscious of millions of fans for more than 25 years.

The live show beckons audiences to dip their ear toes into pools of molten imagination and whimsical metal, courtesy of an unpredictable set that may consist of new songs, old ditties, or “Mary Had a Little Lamb” as sung from the point of view of a melancholy fire hydrant. Prog-rock fans enjoy an opening set from The Crimson ProjeKct, a King Crimson spinoff featuring guitar guru Adrian Belew, bass genius Tony Levin, and ballistic drummer Pat Mastelotto.

Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
