Queensryche returns to NYC and brings along Armored Saint and Midnight Eternal. This is going to be a fun night of Metal for sure.
Here’s a pairing of titanic Metal proportions, it seems as though Queensryche will be hitting the road once more and handling the headlining duties and bringing along those knights of Metal valor in Armored Saint as direct support. Check out the official tour press that I received a short time ago along with the poster and dates. I’ll return with some additional thoughts after that. This is going to be a good one.
The Press Release:
Internationally renowned Seattle based metal outfit QUEENSRŸCHE have announced their next headlining tour throughout the United States. The month long trek will take place this Fall, starting on November 15th in Seattle, WA and concluding on December 15th in Colorado Springs, CO. Queensryche will be joined by the iconic Armored Saint as direct support, along with Midnight Eternal on all dates for the upcoming tour. The band continues to perform across the world on the strength of their latest full length album, Condition Human, which was released in October (2015). Dates for the Fall headlining tour can be found below.
Speaking about the upcoming US tour and playing with Armored Saint, Queensryche vocalist Todd La Torre comments, “We are pleased to announce that we will be hitting the road this November with the one and only Armored Saint and Midnight Eternal. We’re looking forward to seeing all of you for this great billing of musical diversity and high energy performances! Come join the Ryche this November – December!”
Lead guitarist and founding member Michael Wilton also gave his thoughts on the band’s Fall dates, saying, “Queensryche is proud to be embarking on our Fall 2016 – Condition Human US tour with special guests Armored Saint and Midnight Eternal! We encourage our fans to come out for this one and prepare yourselves for some high energy rock shows!”

Queensryche seems to be bypassing NYC for their first go round of 2016 and will set sights on the Starland Ballroom. Supporting the show will be Meytal, Halcyon Way, Psychoprism, Cashmier and Ixion Lux.
The Details: It’s without question that the last year or so in the life of the band known as Queensryche has been a tumultuous one and now there are two separate sides of the music fence when it comes to the group. On one side, the bands original singer Geoff Tate with a brand new band and on the other, the rest of the guys with a brand new singer. I’ve supported the group since the beginning and have chosen to keep this practice up with coverage of both sides and that made me excited when I learned that Queensryche featuring Geoff Tate, the Original Voice would be performing at our own Gramercy Theatre. Queensryche will be joined by Hurricane on this tour and I enjoyed some of their output as well over the years. Geoff’s assembled a high energy lineup that features former members of Quiet Riot, Dio and more and will be celebrating the music of “Operation: Mindcrime”, an album that reached its 25th year in 2013 – it is one of my favorites and you probably agree . My charge of musical energy was increased when the fine folks at Livenation offered up a contest for the readers of the PiercingMetal site. Read on below to see participation rules.
