    Default Queensryche opening for the Foot

    It's a bit strange to imagine this, i would've thought that it would be the other way around, but apparently they'll open for the Foot on 3 dates on the west coast.

    It'll be cool to see the 'Ryche before the Foot.

    I would assume that Queensryche is no longer a good concert draw. Probably a small but dedicated fan base.

    That sounds like a very cool night out, indeed.

    Also interesting to read about Lita Ford joining Queensryche onstage for three songs during the October shows. Hell, also interesting to read about Keel reuniting, too. I should check out melodicrock more often!

    SHIT!

    I liked Backdoor Slam but, damnit, Queensryche opening for the Foot? I've wanted to see the 'Ryche for such a long time now!

    You people going to those shows are lucky as hell...

    Wow! That would be an amazing show!!! Too bad they didn't open for them in Toronto when I saw Chickenfoot live last month. I love Queensryche.

    I saw Queensryche this year at the House Of Blues in New Orleans. Great show, but yeah, probably had 1000 to 1500 people at the most.

    9/25 - Greek Theater UC Berkeley
    9/26 - Harrah's Rincon San Diego *I will be there! *
    9/27 - Gibson Amphitheater LA

    I also saw Ryche at the HOB San Diego earlier this year. Great show, but only 1-2k people there tops. They are definitely in fine form and get great crowd response but have a small, dedicated following at this point...

    Pretty much. I don't think they would out-draw Sammy solo. Don't think they sold more albums than he did, either, so they're one of those bands that probably drew well when they were popular, but didn't sell enough to carry them in concert 20 years later.

    Would love to see one of those shows, though.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    It would be interesting to compare the two. You may be right. I would think Sammy has released more albums, but I have no idea how many he has done. And he had a handful of "well-known" songs, definitely.

    But then again, the Mindcrime and Empire years were pretty good for Queensryche, I would think Mindcrime sold better than VOA, if I had to guess.
    Hmmmn, interesting, Sammy solo versus Queensryche.

    Someone will come along with The Knowledge shortly, I just know it.
