“We thank you all for your support and warm welcome each and every time we travel to Europe. Please join us for a memorable evening of music ranging from the obscure classics, well-known hits, and new material from our latest release Condition Human. See you soon.”

Guitarist Michael Wilton adds: “Queensryche is excited to return to Europe. The legacy of the band is continuing with anticipated festivals,cruises and rock venues. Come out and support the Ryche and live music.”
