Although most music fans know John Petrucci for his main band, Dream Theater, there’s no shortage of rock enthusiasts who follow his own solo recordings. At present, Petrucci is more than halfway through his national tour featuring ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and bassist Dave LaRue. Fans can expect to hear his latest album, ‘Terminal Velocity,’ as well as his previous effort, ‘Suspended Animation.’ Judging from the set lists at recent shows, Petrucci’s upcoming 11-song concert is sure to please even the biggest curmudgeon. Opening the show is the all-female – and recently reunited – Meanstreak band. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts promptly at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $25 and go up to $175 for a Platinum Reserved Seating and can be purchased at www.crestsacramento.com or via promoter, SBL Entertainment. The Crest Theatre is located at 1013 K Street in Sacramento.
