Got my tickets this week for Queensryche's new tour in support of their new CD, "American Solider," coming out later this month. Apparently it's going to be another concept album -- haven't heard any of it yet. The hook for me was that the tour is being billed as one in which they will also play "extended suites" from "Rage for Order" and "Empire." 8) That should be interesting.

Oh, and my tickets are Row A behind a small orchestra section. *r* Nice. Haven't seen Queensryche live since the "Operation Mindcrime" tour.

I got to see them last year, absolutely awesome. They played Mindcrime 1 & 2 back-to back.

I've just read that Mike Stone has now left tho :(

Here's what the band's website says about Mike Stone:

Mike Stone has decided he will not be touring with Queensryche this spring. We will miss him. He is a wonderful player and has contributed to our lives musically and spiritually. We wish him the best and hope to see him succeed in everything he chooses to participate in. He adds this statement:

"After much consideration, I will not be joining Queensryche on the 2009 American Soldier Tour. I feel now is the time to focus on other musical endeavors, including my new band Speed X with Nick Catanese of Black Label Society. I would like to thank all of the Queensryche fans around the world for being nothing less than amazing to me during my time with the band. You have treated me like gold, and I will never forget it. It has been an honor to be a part of the Queensryche family, and I wish Geoff, Michael, Scott and Eddie nothing but the very best." - Mike Stone

Not loving "American Soldier". With every new release, I hold my breath and hope, but as usual, disappointment. For me, Promised Land was the last decent alblum, at least 50% was good.

I understand your feelings, Breck -- with each QR album of the last decade or more, it's been "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst." :?

I've found a few positive moments on the new album, but it's been a long time since I liked a QR album in its entirety. :|
