Dreams So Real, the Athens Georgia band perhaps best known for its 1988 album Rough Night In Jericho, will reunite to perform this spring on April 27th and 28th in Athens and Atlanta for just the second time in a decade and nearly 25 years since the release of Rough Night In Jericho whose title track garnered heavy airplay on radio and MTV and reached #28 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart. The group toured nationally and internationally over the next six years, released four albums and produced three music videos before unofficially disbanding in 1994.
Highlighting the annual Athens Twilight Criterium bike race weekend in downtown Athens, Dreams So Real will appear at the Melting Point at the Foundry Park Inn on Friday, April 27th, 2012. It will be the band’s first performance in their hometown since their return to the stage at Athfest in June of 2009. The Twilight Race brings tens of thousands of visitors to Athens each spring and for the one-of-a-kind event and has always been a highlight of the tourism year in Athens.
Returning to one of Atlanta’s most intimate venues on the following night, Dreams So Real will perform at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta on April 28th, 2012. It will be the band’s first performance in the Georgia capitol city in nearly 15 years and the first with all three original members in nearly twenty.
