Dream Theater, including Ernie Ball Music Man artists John Petrucci and John Myung, are currently on the South American leg of their tour supporting their new “The Astonishing” album.

“Guitarist John Petrucci came up with and developed the album’s concept, and along with keyboardist Jordan Rudess wrote the music for The Astonishing. The songs are meticulously arranged and expertly produced, and as you’d expect from Dream Theater, are played flawlessly. They also used a real orchestra and choir that provides depth, texture and atmosphere.” – Loudwire review

Take a look below at this exclusive peek backstage from today’s show at Teatro Minascentro in Belo Horizonte, Brazil to get a closer look at John Petrucci’s rig, including his Blueberry Burst JP15. Limited to 300 pieces worldwide, the exclusive Blueberry Burst custom JP15 signature edition was personally autographed by John Petrucci and sequentially numbered #1- #300, with special laser etching on the back tremolo cover. All Blueberry Burst JP15 guitars feature an African mahogany body with highly quilted maple top, roasted maple neck and fingerboard, 20db boost and DiMarzio Illuminator pickups.
