Metropolis 2000 Tour was the main world tour by progressive metal/rock band Dream Theater, promoting Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory album. The tour began January 31, 2000 in Phoenix, Arizona, US, and concluded October 21, 2000 in London, England. The tour to support the album was unusual in that every show started with a full performance of the entire album, something the band had never done before with any of their previous albums.

The tour started with North America 1st leg, January 31, 2000 until March 10, 2000. On the first tour, the show opened by guitarist Gary Hoey, the second and third shows opened by Spock's Beard, and the rest of North American leg supported by Dixie Dregs.[1] On July 8, 2000, Dream Theater supporting Iron Maiden show in Mannheim, Germany, continued with Bospop Festival with Joe Satriani, Spock's Beard, Flower Kings, and Vanden Plas, in Weert, Netherland, July 9, 2000.[2]

The tour culminated in a show at Roseland Ballroom in New York, August 30, 2000. It was the final show for North American leg's tour. The show was filmed and eventually released in early 2001 as the band's first DVD release, Metropolis 2000: Scenes from New York, which was certified Gold in the US on Nov 8, 2002.[3] The band also released the full show on the live CD Live Scenes from New York.
