Ayreon is the brainchild of producer Arjen Lucassen and composed of a superstar cast of progressive rock musicians. Contributors include James LaBrie (Dream Theater) and Anneke van Giersbergen (solo artist, Devin Townsend Project, The Gentle Storm, ex-The Gathering). This is a truly special moment for Ayreon, as they had never performed live before in 20 years. The make up of the group consisted of too many active touring artists. Over the course of four sold-out shows in September 2015 Ayreon had their first and last ever performances. On the last night they filmed a performance of their legendary album 'The Human Equation' in Rotterdam.
