Queensrÿche coming to Europe this week

Queensrÿche is headed to Europe (see the flyer) this week:
"We're ready and heading to Europe!! We'll be starting at the Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl, Germany this Friday and ending at Train Live in Aarhus, Denmark on September 7th!!"
Recently vocalist Todd La Torre commented about his time in the band so far: "I have to say, I'm really feeling so much more comfortable with these songs. Aside from the variables that touring can and often imposes, these songs are becoming much easier for me to sing. (This one for example is now about a 2 or 3 for me, on a 1-10 difficulty scale.) Even though the range is typically not an issue for me, I made a vow when i joined not to have the band tune down, and it's only made and making me a better singer.
Joining Queensryche was a feat in and of itself, but joining my favorite band AND gaining the acceptance of you all? A grand slam, and I am humbled and grateful.
4+years, 2 albums in, hundreds of shows...that's more than I ever would have imagined. Thx to everyone for making me feel like I truly belong in this band, and like it really was meant to be. Let's ride this 'til the wheels fall off."
OFFICIAL: Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP “Queensrÿche”. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album “The Warning” in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of “Rage For Order”, Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80’s. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album “Operation: Mindcrime”, which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold out performances around the world. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful “Empire” in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV “viewers choice” award for the #1 chart topping hit “Silent Lucidity”. During the next ten years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold out audiences. Queensrÿche has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process.
The band’s name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. Queensrÿche built a dedicated legion of fans traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard. In recent years, they’ve consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen. Even with eleven gold and platinum plaques and several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, Queensrÿche won’t relent. In fact, they’re in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence.
