Keyboardist Jordan Rudess of progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER will hold a live Internet concert event, “Live At My Steinway”, on Sunday, June 3 at 4:00 p.m. EST at Stageit.com.
A four-minute video interview with AOL‘s Noisecreep in which Rudess talks about the upcoming performance can be seen below.
“I like how Stageit.com is making it possible for artists to perform unique online concerts,” says Rudess. “Their model is very appealing to me so I think I’d try it out with a special piano-based performance.”
